Does Christian County need a bigger and better library?

On June 25, 2017, in Announcement, Election, Event, by Christian County Democrats

 

Blue vote button

On August 8th, 2017, you will have the opportunity to decide on the future of libraries in Christian County. You may also have a chance to vote on tax and bond issues, depending on your precinct.

Make sure you are registered to vote by July 12th! If you have moved to Christian County or moved inside Christian County, make sure to re-register with the County Clerk’s office. You can also see a sample ballot for your precinct at this location.

Here is the ballot language for the Library issue: Shall the trustees of the Christian County Library be authorized to renew its tax levy to the previously voted and approved rate of $0.20 per one hundred dollars assessed valuation for the purpose of 1) increasin

g the budget for books, materials, computers & technology; 2) expanding library services throughout the county with planned locations in Nixa, Sparta, and Clever, with improvements to the Ozark facility?

If you have further questions on this ballot issue, check out their website.

Are you going to be out of the county on election day?  

Don’t worry, absentee voting begins June 27th. Again, check with the County Clerk’s office. Absentee voting will end on August 5th.

Are you without a valid photo id?? There are still a lot of questions concerning the new law on voter photo id. But according to the Secretary of State’s office “If you are registered to vote, you can vote!” (But if you do not have a government-issued photo id, you will be required to sign an affidavit and/or receive a provisional ballot.) More information can be found at the Secretary of State’s website

 

Christmas Dinner and Fundraiser a Success!

On February 17, 2017, in Announcement, Event, by Christian County Democrats

We thank all our dedicated, concerned Christian County Democrats (as well as our friends in Greene County and other nearby counties) for joining us at our annual Christmas Party. Jim Kabell did a great job of lifting our spirits and engaging us in the future fight. The Cattywampus Band had the room tapping their feet, and our Fremont Hills dinner was a pleasure. Tony Smith accepted the Litton Award for his service to the Christian County Democrats—both the Central Committee and the Democrat Club. Matt Patterson helped us make a bundle of money on our baskets, pies, and other auctioned items. This event is a fundraiser for the Central Committee, so we are glad we can start off this year with adequate funds And did we mention the fun had by all?? Coming together in such difficult times was exhilarating.

Get your sample ballot for the November 8th Christian County Election.

Besides voting for our First Female President, you will be voting on US Senator (Jason Kander) and US Representative (Genevieve Williams), as well as Missouri state officers. You will also be able to vote for your District State Representative (and if you live in the 140th you have Jim Billedo on the ticket!), the 38th Circuit Judge, and the retention of certain judges. You will be also be voting for the Christian County elections offices of Commissioner (and if you live in eastern Christian County, you have Sue Ann Childers on the ticket!), Sheriff, Assessor, Treasurer, Coroner, and Public Administrator.  And you will vote on Constitutional Amendments (1,2,3,4, & 6) and Proposition A.

Recommendations on Ballot Issues:

Amendment 1: Continues funding soil and water conservation for state parks and historic sites for the next 10 years. RECOMMENDATION: YES

Amendment 2: Limits campaign contributions. But language is not clear; it could ban labor unions contributing, but allow corporations. Supported by Fred Sauer, author of “How Liberalism, a euphemism for socialism, destroys peoples and nations.” RECOMMENDATION: NO

Amendment 3: Tax on cigarettes, 75% for early childhood education. Would limit taxes on cigarettes and give public monies to private and religious schools. Supported by large tobacco companies. Opposed by MO Nat. Education Association, American Lung Association, and American Heart Asssociation. RECOMMENDATION: NO

Amendment 4: Prevents new state or local sales/use tax on any service or transaction. It could block future taxes on new industries, limiting state and local entities with budget problems. Supported by MO Associations of Home Inspectors, Cattlemen, Funeral Directors, Broadcasters, Bankers, etc. Opposed by MO Municipal League and the Budget Project. RECOMMENDATION: NO

Proposition A: Tax on cigarettes, funding transportation infrastructure. This competes with Amendment 1, but also limits taxes on cigarettes. Supported by MO Petroleum Markets and Convenience Store Association. Opposed by Cancer Society, MO American Lung Association, American Heart Association, etc.

Amendment 6: Voters “may” be required to verify their identity, citizenship and residence with a photo id. This would suppress voters, especially minorities, the elderly, the poor, and students. There is no real evidence of voter fraud, and it will be difficult for people to get these ids. Republicans nationwide are pushing this issue in order to suppress Democrat voters. Democrats nationwide strongly oppose it. RECOMMENDATION: NO

For more information check out the VOTERS GUIDE by the League of Women Voters. You may go to their website and put in your address, or pick one up at your local library. Also, checkout the Christian County Headliner for October 26th. They have interviewed local candidates and presented the pros and cons of the ballot issues.
