Judy Baker (D) announced today that she’s running for the 19th Senate District seat currently held by Caleb Rowden (r):
Good Afternoon! I have some big news! After much consideration and reaching out to friends, voters, and leaders in my community, I have decided to run for our State Senate seat here in mid-Missouri.
Our community needs representation that reflects its values. Our politicians in Jefferson City, MO keep voting against us. Sometimes they flat out try to overturn the will of people who have voted on ballot initiatives or sometimes they just go too far and pass an abortion ban that has no exceptions for rape and incest. Sometimes, they ignore sensible firearm legislation that would save lives. They don’t value local control and they aren’t interested in the stewardship of our planet. And then there’s the matter of kicking kids off Healthcare coverage!
I am going to stand up. I hope you will stand with me!
