Blunt Appoints Becky Plattner to Conservation Commission

MARSHALL – Gov. Matt Blunt today appointed Becky L. Plattner (D) to the Missouri Conservation Commission.

“I am pleased that Becky Plattner has agreed to serve the citizens of Missouri in this new position,” Gov. Blunt said. “I look forward to working with Becky and the commission to protect Missouri’s natural beauty and wildlife.”

Ms. Plattner, 49 of Grand Pass, is the presiding commissioner in Saline County and serves as financial manager for Plattner Brothers L.L.C. Custom Farming. She has served as a consultant to the Grand Pass Special Road District, Grand Pass Pump Levy District and Saline County Domestic Lighthouse Shelter….

Then there’s State Treasurer:

Clint Zweifel Florissant MO 2/26/2008 8:48:10 AM

Andria Danine Simckes St. Louis MO 2/26/2008 9:42:59 AM

Charles B. Wheeler Kansas City MO 3/13/2008 3:42:02 PM

Does anyone get the feeling that this is a “not St. Louis” kind of thing? Or maybe “what about Kansas City?”

This even extends to the Attorney General race:


Chris Koster Jefferson City MO 2/26/2008 12:05:29 PM

Margaret Donnelly St. Louis MO 2/26/2008 1:51:36 PM

Jeff Harris Columbia MO 65205 2/26/2008 11:01:06 AM

Those first quarter 2008 campaign finance reports due at the Missouri Ethics Commission in mid-April are going to be very interesting.
