Times of crisis often shine a spotlight on the inequities in our society and this crisis may be the one that pushes us over the finish line on fights we’ve waged for years – health care access for all, paid sick leave, expanded unemployment insurance, worker protections, expanded voting rights, and rural broadband access.
While our state reps and senators draft and sponsor bills pushing for relief and protection for Missouri families and businesses, our Governor abdicates responsibility for the welfare of the people.
While cities and counties have made the tough choice to issue “Stay At Home” orders, Gov. Parson does nothing.
While our April municipal elections are postponed until June, Gov. Parson won’t re-open voter registration.
While our grocery and pharmacy workers are on the front lines putting their own health at risk everyday, Gov. Parson doesn’t offer them hazard protections.
While Missouri families go without health care during an epidemic, Gov. Parson still won’t expand Medicaid.
If there is one thing the blundering response to this crisis has done, it’s been to put a fire in the belly of Democrats, liberals, moderates, independents, and even those who weren’t all that interested in politics before – all demanding leadership, competence, and compassion. Enough is enough.
It is with this renewed sense of urgency that I say we can win back the Governor’s mansion. We can send a new representative to Congress. And we can flip seats in the suburbs of our four largest cities.
March 31st is the end of the first quarter of 2020 and we are not where we need to be in a presidential election year. If you’re able to, step up your personal commitment to get these Democrats elected. Can you support us with a $10 contribution today?
Onward to victory,
