Over the past few weeks, many of you have made it clear how concerned you are about national security, homeland security, and specifically, the conflict involving the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL). I firmly believe providing for the common defense of our nation is a fundamental duty that our Constitution requires, and it is a responsibility that I take seriously.

    For far too long, it’s been the same old song and dance in Washington. The House of Representatives has remained committed in passing targeted pieces of legislation that will grow the economy while Harry Reid’s Senate remains steadfast in its efforts to not bring anything to the floor for debate, let alone a vote. And with over 40 House-passed, straight-forward, job creating bills sitting in the Senate hopper, it is

    Allow me to give you an update from MoDOT for the rest of this year’s work. Mowing of the right-of-ways will continue on the major highways of 61, 79 and 47. This means two passes on each side and as well as the median for the mowers. Minor routes, which are all the letter routes, will have one pass made. The walkway over Old Cap-Au-Gris should be completed in October.

    Complicated, complex, and confusing are just a few words that come to mind when I think about the nation’s tax code. And during a time when words like bipartisanship and common-sense are not often heard in Washington, I am proud to have recently led an effort in the House that is both bipartisan and makes common-sense for the people of Missouri. It all centers on whether or not folks should

    As I write this article, the General Assembly has convened the Veto Session. This will be my last voting opportunity as the State Representative for the 41st District in Lincoln County. I will continue to vote my constituency and not a straight party line. As always, I try hard to listen to feedback and concerns of the voters. I do look at every email or letter, and listen to phone

    Twenty-five years ago I didn’t have a cell phone. While a great number of my contemporaries relied on a Franklin Planner to manage their daily business, my working life was run with a rolodex and a pocket calendar. At the time Nancy, Katie and I lived in Kansas City North and we were members of Northminister Presbyterian and our Pastor was a gentleman named Paul Swedlund. Pastor Paul as he

    Most of you have probably seen a new bridge under construction for walkers and cyclists in Troy over Highway 61 at Old Cap-Au-Gris. I am pleased that MoDOT has consented to build this bridge for the safety of students and anyone crossing to Troy Buchanan High School. Remember recently that Governor Nixon was here to announce the tornado shelter building that would be located between the high school and Hwy.
