State Sen Bob Dixon (R) highlighted his long political career in a profile in the Neosho Daily News.
Dixon: “I was part of the first Republican majority in 50 years in the state. … Then I was encouraged to seek the senate seat in Springfield, and so I served representing the 30th District now in the Missouri Senate. I have always tried to listen to folks. I have a core set of values, what I call sensible conservative solutions that are the answers to the issues that face us.”
Dixon also talked about wanting to remove government regulations and wanting to better prepare students. (Neosho Daily News)
BIG FAN OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT. Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder (R) issued a statement condemning some of the actions of Mizzou protesters, who were filmed blocking a student photographer.
Kinder: “Actions on Monday by University faculty and staff to infringe on students’ First Amendment rights directly contradict what is taught at our universities. This incident must be examined, and if found necessary, disciplined.” (Columbia Missourian)
