Issues

Campaign themes

Komo's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Get Missouri Moving

  • Excerpt:"My number one goal is to attract new jobs and to help existing businesses to expand in our county and state."

Support Education

  • Excerpt:"Our local schools are the best hope that our children and grandchildren have for accomplishing their dreams, securing a career and having a good life."

Respect The Will Of The People

  • Excerpt:"When voters passed a law to ban puppy mills by 62% in the district our current Representative immediately voted to Overturn the vote of the people. I believe the Will Of The People must be respected by our elected representatives!"

Keep Missouri’s Budget Balanced

  • Excerpt:"Unlike the Federal Government, Missouri is required to have a balanced budget. This requirement, to live within our means, helps Missouri to remain solvent and to maintain excellent bond ratings."

An Open Government That Doesn’t Intrude

  • Excerpt:"We need completely open and transparent government that supports the needs of the citizens without overstepping the authority given to them by the voters. We need to end the practice of backroom deals and reduce the influence of special interest money."
