The following may be attributed to Representative Martha Stevens:
“For the past nine legislative sessions, first as an advocate and then as a legislator, I have had the privilege to work and push for public policy that improves the lives of Missourians across our state. I first got involved in Missouri politics in 2013 while working for Planned Parenthood and transitioned to working with the Missouri Rural Crisis Center organizing in support of Medicaid Expansion. Over the last five years as a State Representative, I have dedicated myself to advancing policy to support families with low incomes, people struggling with the disease of addiction, and many other priorities that reflect an agenda to promote social and economic justice for all Missourians.
“I am very proud of the priorities I have been able to shepherd into becoming law over the last five years. In 2018, I worked with colleagues to pass legislation to provide substance abuse & mental health services for new mothers suffering from the disease of addiction. In the 2021 legislative session I passed a bill to allow families who qualify for the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) to receive vouchers to utilize at their local farmers market. This bill was a win for families, farmers, and our local economies. I am deeply appreciative for the support of the people of the 46th District, the many stakeholders and advocates, and my fellow legislators who helped me get bills across the finish line.
“After much thought and deliberation, I have decided that I will not run in 2022, and this current term in office will be my last as State Representative. I did not come to this decision easily and I will never be able to express my gratitude to everyone who put their trust in me, knocked doors, made calls, and donated to our campaign over the years.
“It has truly been the honor of my lifetime to represent and fight for the progressive values we share in the 46th District. Without a doubt, I plan on continuing my career in advocacy as a social work professional and will take with me all the knowledge, skills, and lessons I have learned in Jefferson City to a new role after I finish my term in December 2022.”

It’s unfortunate how many people think saying “Lincoln was reprehensible” equals some kind of support for the Confederacy, especially given the context of my tweet.
It’s quite possible to point out that neither Lincoln nor Lee where good people deserving of honor. 1:33 PM · Sep 9, 2021
JEFFERSON CITY, MO, SEPT. 3, 2021 – The Missouri Department of Resources announced today that an exhibit detailing the history of the LGBTQ community in Missouri has been relocated for display at the Lohman Building, part of the Jefferson Landing State Historic Site. The exhibit will be available for viewing beginning tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 4. (The Missouri State Museum and the Jefferson Landing State Historic Site will be closed Sunday and Monday for Labor Day.)
The Lohman Building is located adjacent to the Capitol and is easily accessible. Missouri State Museum team members staff and operate the Jefferson Landing State Historic Site.
The display was moved from the Missouri State Museum in the Capitol earlier this week after the department received complaints.
“We apologize for the way this unfolded,” said Dru Buntin, director of the Department of Natural Resources. “We agree the history of all Missourians is an important story that needs to be told, and we’ve made a commitment to work with the members of the State Capitol Commission and the Board of Public Buildings to do so.”
Careful review of the museum’s interpretive and exhibit guidance shows that exhibits on loan from other institutions like this one are often housed at Jefferson Landing State Historic Site.
The Making History: Kansas City and The Rise of Gay Rights exhibit is on loan to the Missouri State Museum from UMKC. The exhibit, which was produced by UMKC, was borrowed due to its connection to a notable date – the formation of the Phoenix Society of Individual Freedom – on the Missouri Bicentennial timeline on display in the museum’s History Hall. It is on loan through the end of the year.
“In response to a number of concerns, we made the decision to move the exhibit while we clarified and reviewed our internal process to make sure we were complying with state law,” said Mike Sutherland, deputy department director.
The Department of Natural Resources is charged with maintaining an historical state museum in the Capitol. The museum develops many of its exhibits, but it also accepts exhibits on loan from other institutions to expose visitors to a wide variety of topics significant in Missouri history and culture. State law requires the museum to coordinate with the Board of Public Buildings for the use of space in the Capitol. The board has delegated responsibility for that coordination to the Missouri State Capitol Commission.
The department invites the public to attend its Sept. 16 public meeting for the Missouri State Museum and Jefferson Landing State Historic Site. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the Riverside Collections Facility, 117 Riverside Drive, Jefferson City. Following the informational meeting, museum staff will provide a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum’s collections area.
Another profile in courage.
“…’In response to a number of concerns, we made the decision to move the exhibit while we clarified and reviewed our internal process to make sure we were complying with state law,’ said Mike Sutherland, deputy department director…” Ah, pearl clutchers.
“The Parson administration’s removal of an exhibit on LGBT history from the Missouri Capitol Museum was disappointing. That the governor lied about his reasons for doing so is indefensible. The statutory procedure the governor says wasn’t followed for approving exhibits does not exist. State law authorizes the Board of Public Buildings to allocate space to the museum but gives the board no power to determine the content of exhibits, and there is no evidence the board has ever done so. The governor had no justification for removing this exhibit and no excuse for not restoring it.”
I’d like everyone to remember the private planes and citizens who have come to the rescue of Americans and our allies the next time someone promises a government program as the solution to a problem. 7:01 PM · Aug 29, 2021
Apparently air traffic control, site logistics, and perimeter security, just to name a few, aren’t necessary during an evacuation of non-combatants.

When you find yourself in a hole the first thing you do is stop digging.
“…rescue of Americans and our allies…” That’s not about a hurricane on the Gulf Coast.
JEFFERSON CITY — Sen. Rick Brattin, R-Harrisonville, sent a letter to the governor this week urging him to call an extraordinary session of the Missouri Senate and House to consider legislation to protect Missourians from COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
“It’s become clear that some businesses and institutions around this state are dead set on forcing the vaccine on Missourians against their will,” Sen. Brattin said. “The people of Missouri can and should decide for themselves if taking a drug that even the FDA hasn’t fully approved is what is best for them and their families. Employers shouldn’t make that decision, nor should big business, and certainly not politicians.”
The letter comes in response to a number of health care facilities and other businesses forcing workers to be vaccinated by a specified date or be fired from their jobs. Senator Brattin was joined by several of his colleagues in the Senate, who also signed the letter, asking the governor to “call an extraordinary session at your earliest convenience so the General Assembly can take any and all appropriate steps to protect Missouri workers from vaccine mandates.”
“Forcing anyone to take an experimental drug is wrong. It violates some our most basic rights as Americans and Missourians,” Sen. Brattin said. “We need to do something about it, and we need to do it now before people are forced out of their jobs. It’s our job as the elected representatives of the people to safeguard the freedom and liberty of the people we work for, and I can’t think of anything more urgent and important than protecting them from forced vaccination.”
Senator Brattin represents the 31st Senatorial District, covering Barton, Bates, Cass, Henry and Vernon counties. Senator Brattin resides in Harrisonville [….]

I happen to disagree with them on this issue, but this is a ridiculous and unproductive comment.
Maybe try rebutting their points rather than attacking an entire group of people.
If you really want more Republicans to change their tune on vaccines, this is not helping. 9:35 PM · Aug 4, 2021
Representative Tony Lovasco, a Republican, represents St. Charles and Lincoln Counties (District 64) in the Missouri House of Representatives. He was elected to his first two-year term in November 2018.
“…If you really want more Republicans to change their tune on vaccines, this is not helping.”
Science and math hasn’t worked. Neither has objective reality nor empathy. What will it take? An engraved invitation? Flowery language? Just asking. It’s your party. A lot of people are dying.
