Congressional Candidate Teresa Hensley To Speak In Moberly

June 18, 2012


Join us, as we welcome Democratic candidate for the 4th Congressional District, Teresa Hensley, to Moberly, Thursday evening at Nelly’s.

Social time starts at 6:00, with dinner being served at 6:30 and meeting beginning at 7:00.  We urge all Randolph County residents to attend this important meeting and meet the candidate the Washington Post recently said was running in one of the “Top 10 House Districts that might surprise you“.

Teresa Hensley will provide a strong independent voice for the middle class in Congress. She believes politicians in Washington are more concerned with scoring political points and looking out for special interests than they are in getting things done for the people they represent.

As the Prosecuting Attorney for Cass County, Hensley has built a record of protecting our community by convicting murderers, child abusers, drunk drivers, and domestic violence offenders.  Appointed to the position in January 2005, Hensley was elected in November of 2006 and again in 2010. She recently received the 2010 Missouri Attorney General’s Justice Award for Domestic Violence Prevention.

In addition to her strong record of prosecuting criminals, Hensley has demonstrated an ability to work across departmental lines to form effective partnerships with area law enforcement and first responders – including the DWI Task Force, the Cass County Fire Investigation Team, and the Child Abuse Response Team – which have proactively increased citizen safety. She instituted a safety-training program for women, sponsors local concealed carry classes, and continues to work with multiple agencies to coordinate effective crime prevention programs.

Her work in the prosecutor’s office demonstrates she can assemble a team to get the job done and keep our community safe. In Congress, Hensley will work with anyone from any party to jump start our economy.

A life-long resident of Cass County, Hensley has served as a Raymore Alderman, Raymore Planning and Zoning Board member, and member of the Missouri Child Abuse and Neglect Review Board. A former board member of Hope Haven of Cass County, she remains active in that organization and is a strong supporter of the Domestic Violence Coalition. She is also a member of the Bel-Ray Sunrise Lions Club, a Paul Harris Fellow through the Harrisonville Rotary, a member of Harrisonville Business and Professional Women, Harrisonville and Raymore Chambers of Commerce, and a life-long member of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. A supporter of 2nd Amendment rights, she has received an A+ rating from the NRA.

Hensley graduated from Raymore-Peculiar High School before earning her undergraduate degree from William Jewell College and a law degree from the University of Missouri Kansas City. She is a certified family law mediator, has taught criminal law at William Jewell College, and, before becoming Cass County Prosecutor, was a partner and practicing attorney for 14 years with the Hensley Law Firm in Raymore, a firm she started with her husband, Kenny.

She grew up in Cass County where her parents and family still reside. She and her husband Kenny have one son, Frank, age 29.  All are diehard MU fans.
