MOCOA has officially endorsed Eric Greitens for Governor and we are asking you and your friends and families to get out and vote for Eric. In September, Tim Cutt and I met privately with Mr. Greitens in Saint Louis for over an hour. What we found was a very impressive individual with the good of Missouri at heart. We discussed the following issues in our meeting:
We discussed the Right To Work. Although Eric would sign a right to work bill, he assures us that he would exempt corrections officers. I can promise you that Missouri is going to get the right to work passed. The legislature was only one vote short of overriding the Governors’ veto last session. They will soon find that one vote and with Mr. Greitens as Governor we will be ahead of the curve.
We discussed corrections officers pay and how they are among the lowest paid in the nation. He agreed that this needs fixed and has a plan to achieve this by downsizing state government through all departments.
We also discussed his lack of an NRA endorsement. He assured us that he has the highest rating a private citizen can have. However, not being a politician with a voting record to score by, he could not receive an endorsement. The NRA bases their endorsement on past voting records. As an ex-NAVY SEAL, Eric is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment.
I can assure you that if Koster is elected as Governor you can expect four to eight more years of the same past eight years.
Please help us….help you. Get out and vote for Eric Greitens and encourage everyone you know to do the same. Your vote does matter. If you have questions give us a call.
