My name is Bob Burns and I’m running for State Representative in the new 93rd District where both my wife Dianne and I grew up. Spending 45 years of marriage here, raising two sons, being active in community affairs, working with former Congressman Dick Gephardt and U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill has helped prepare me to represent and fight for the interests of our community. My top goals are to:
1. Help attract and retain good jobs that pay a living wage
2. Support public education and our teachers. We must give them the resources they need to help our children and grandchildren succeed.
3. Protect access to affordable healthcare and oppose cuts to
Medicare and Medicaid.
4. Support fair trade practices that help American made goods and manufacturing.
This election is important and there is a great deal at stake. Last year the Republican leadership in the House pushed to end property tax rebates for seniors, also known as the Circuit Breaker Law. Democratic House members helped save this valuable tax break. Working together we can stop the elimination of funding and programs that help seniors, the middle-class, working families, our children, teachers, nurses, firefighters and police.
Governor Jay Nixon helped lead the way back for Missouri’s economy with his Manufacturing Jobs Act that helped create thousands of new jobs and protect thousands more. As your Representative I will work with the Governor to continue to focus on creating new jobs as we work to jump start Missouri’s economy.
I was raised that one person can make a difference. Your vote and your support would be greatly appreciated. If I can answer any questions or ever be of service, please contact me. It would be an honor to represent your interests in Jefferson City. Thank you!
