Pleasant Hill, Missouri resident Jim White has filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission and announced that he is running as a Democrat in the 2016 4th Congressional District race.

Jim White (D) is running in the 4th Congressional District in 2016.

Yes, I am running for U S Congress for the 4th district in Missouri. I have filed my candidacy and committee with the FEC. Rowena and I have had several conversations with the FEC already and they are very helpful.

I want to be a representative for all the people of the 4th district. Right now Congress has about a 15% approval rating, so the question is why re-hire them. I think it is time for a change.

I will vigorously work for the district and all of its citizens. I recently heard a member of the Senate on the radio claim to be “fighting” for her state and constituents. I don’t think the use of the term fighting is that productive, what we need is less fighting and more work. I would work with Republicans, Independents as well as my fellow Democrats, but I don’t think we should fight, so far that hasn’t proven to be productive.

I have been traveling in the 4th district and will continue to do so until November 2016, and then with your help travel to Washington.
