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

sheriff-badgeAt a special meeting of the Christian County Democratic Central Committee (CCDCC), held on May 22, members interviewed Ken Lovell and unanimously voted him to be our candidate for sheriff in the August 4 special election.

Lovell has years of experience in law enforcement, working in Clever, Republic, Branson, and Nixa police departments. He has also been working as Nixa’s school resource officer. He currently owns and runs A Bit of Country K9 Kennel in Nixa.

In addition, Lovell has 18 years of experience in law enforcement and plans on running for sheriff (as a Democrat) again in 2016. He would like to make a difference in our community and bring back professionalism to the office; he believes the department should have better contact with the community.

A fundraiser for Ken Lovell will be held by the CCDCC on Tuesday, June 30 at the Nixa Community Center Pavillon (McCauley Park), from 6-9pm. We hope our fellow Christian County Democrats will support our candidate by attending this event or by donating to his cause.
