Speak Out — Call Your MO State Legislators


Speak Out Call Your State Legislators. December is the month Missouri State Legislators can pre-file bills for consideration by our State House and State Senate. Call and speak with your State Senator and MO House Rep. about three things during this month:

  • File or support a bill to expand Medicaid in MO. Our state needs this measure to improve our healthcare and to protect rural hospitals.
  • Support the bill to ratify the ERA (Equal Rights Amendment) in Missouri. State Senator Jill Schupp has filed this bill and we need cosponsors and supporters from both parties in our #MOLeg.
  • Do NOT file or support legislation ls this session that aims to overturn the will of voters. They need to hear from their constituents that we knew exactly what we were voting for in Aug. when we repealed Right to Work in MO but voting NO On Prop A, and we were well informed voters in November when we cleaned up MO by passing Amendment 1, legalized medical cannabis by passing Amendment 2, and raised the Minimum Wage in MO by supporting and passing Prop B. They need to accept the will of the people. We will be watching to see who files or cosponsors or votes yes on bills that aim to overturn voter will.     #TheCapitalIsThePeoplesHouse

As we obtain home district contact info our area legislators we will begin to use that info in our Speak Out emails.


Southwest Missouri Democrats do not have a December Town Hall meeting. We skip our December monthly meeting so our members have ample time to celebrate the holidays with friends, family, and colleagues.

We are pleased to announce our speaker for the #SWMODems Town Hall to be held on Wed. January 16, 2019 will be the new President of the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce (JACC), Tobias (Toby) Teeter.

Many of our members will remember Toby from his days on the Jasper County Central Democratic Committee, and from from his Local Races business, which hosted the nationwide Rise Up 5K. We are so pleased the JACC has selected Toby to be the new Chamber President and look forward to hearing him speak about moving the Joplin area forward.
