This week starts the beginning of a new era in Missouri politics thanks to Kansas City All-Star State Rep. Jason Kander (D-Kansas City Brookside-Waldo).
Kander also known as "Mr. Ethics" fought aggressively for a bi-partisan ethics reform bill to pass the Missouri legislature. The bill which started as an underdog with a 1 in 1 million chance of passing, began to grow new life due to the hard work of Democrat Jason Kander and Republican State Representative Tim Flook.
To put it mildly, they refused to let it die. Every week Kander was on radio, television, in the newspaper and blasting out e-mails to blogs like ours with the goal of making the GOP leadership act.
This is bill placed the name Jason Kander statewide and we are excited about that. Kander is the kind of individual and leader the Democratic Party and our state needs!!
His resume is filled with genuine public service to his country and his hard work has reignited a sense of energy inside the Brookside-Waldo neighborhoods. Something that is key to Democrat success statewide.
We at The KC Blue Blog salute Rep. Jason Kander. Keep up the good work.
