  • nursejdavis: I am looking for a few Press Releases from Kevin Hillman that have disappeared.... not sure why they would be hidden from the public unless they contain narcs who have gotten their charges dropped for their cooperation. Seems the same Press Releases were also deleted from Facebook. Thanks for any help in locating these

  • Lepard LLC: Boards will stay open for a place people can find history information longer. I am not allowing anyone to sign up for now because of so many foreginers just wanting to promote their business..

  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Lepard LLC: Why so long before it comes online? 911 took out a loan or bond with the known guarantee payment and began building..

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: You mean that tax that the Commissioners would not put on the ballot for so many years? Strange things happened when the citizens got a chance to vote on that issue.

  • Valor7: I just hate it when I talk to myself!!!!

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

  • Lepard LLC: Is that true Valor? Did he ask you what you wanted?
    March 01, 2016, 04:55:37 AM
  • Lepard LLC: Gene Newkirk Rick I have waited for a Sheriff to bring it to me on what he wanted. I have pushed Mr long for a while to get it to me. He told me he was close to having or done. Now hopefully the people will get to decide on it. I spoke with Steve about this a few times.

The First Full Week of the 2009 Session

The first full week of the 2009 legislative session has come to and end.  During the week we held the swearing in ceremony for the newly elected state-wide office holders.  It was truly an honor to be a part of that day.   

We elected our new Speaker of the House, Representative Ron Richard.  Speaker Richard is an exceptional leader and is committed to taking our State in a promising direction, a direction of job growth and a stronger economy, both things that are needed now more than ever.  I look forward to working with him in the coming months.

The Inaugural Ball was a very special evening.  I was delighted to see so many friends, colleagues and supporters.  I especially appreciate those of you who joined me in Jefferson City for the eveningís festivities.  Hopefully you had a wonderful time and were able to enjoy the beauty of our Capitol as once again history was being made in our state. 

We are ahead of schedule in the House and are beginning work to craft and carry out legislation that is intended to benefit you and your families.  Our strongest initiative is the Family Recovery Plan, which Speaker Richard outlined in his opening day remarks and I have written about for a few weeks now.  In todayís economy, many of our citizens are left without jobs and unable to support themselves and their families.  The Family Recovery Plan seeks relief for the hard working tax-payers of our state.  It focuses on property tax reform, making healthcare accessible and affordable while keeping out fraud and abuse, investing in alternative energy solutions and job creation and economic development throughout Missouri.  The components of this plan work together to give Missourians the help they need during this economic downturn and into the future.

Speaker Richard also made committee appointments.  I am very grateful for the duties he has given me, they are:  Chairman of Committee on Veterans; Vice-Chairman of Committee on State Parks & Waterways; member of the Committee on Professional Registration & Licensing; member of the Committee on General Laws.

Lastly a reminder about the 2009 Legislative Survey that is being conducted.  If you have not already done so, please go to and click on the link to participate in the 2009 Legislative Survey.  This is how you can have your opinion heard and counted, the survey will close on January 30th.  If you donít have internet access, simply call my office at (573) 751-1446 and we will be happy to drop one in the mail to you.
Again, thank you for all your support and for making it possible for me to work to improve the lives of Missouri families.  Your thoughts and suggestions are important to me and I welcome all calls, emails, and suggestions.
