Congresswoman Hartzler issues statement following conference call on Syria
September 9, 2013 Press Release
Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) has issued the following statement regarding her conference call with citizens of the Fourth District who expressed their views on the situation in Syria:

“I pledged that I would listen to the thoughts and concerns of the citizens of Missouri’s Fourth Congressional District regarding this important issue. I have previously stated that I have concerns about the President’s plan to strike Syria, and have yet to be convinced that military action against the Assad regime is in the interests of the United States. Our conference call has further solidified my deep reservations as 97% of participants expressed opposition to our involvement. I thank all the citizens of our district who called in or who have expressed their feelings through telephone calls, emails, letters, and faxes to our offices in Washington and throughout the district. I value the input and will consider all the comments my office has received as I have the opportunity to cast MO-4’s vote in this critical time.”

My statement on The U.S. military strikes in Syria:
“Tuesday’s heartless and brutal attack demanded an answer. We cannot continue to let this tyrant commit such atrocities, and I am hopeful the President’s decision this evening will prevent further bloodshed.
