First it was Austin Petersen declaring his bid to replace Claire McCaskill back on July 4th. We endorsed him early last month and we knew that we would not stop there. On October 24th, Representative Paul Curtman announced his plans to run for Missouri State Auditor to replace Nicole Galloway. Nicole is the only democratic individual who serves in a higher up office in the state of Missouri. Now, we have made the decision for Paul Curtman to join the endorsement list for the 2018 Election. We endorse Paul Curtman for Auditor.
In a State with two major cities on the Western and Eastern border, the auditors job is to make sure government operations in both those cities, towns and the state is ran to maximum efficiency and are operating to where public money is not going to waste. Paul Curtman, being a conservative, knows that the job he could very well take on is an important one, it’s a job meant for the fittest. Paul meets that criteria. He is a hard worker and has not let his constituents down since he was elected a state representative.
We need new new leadership and Nicole Galloway is not living up to the task of being Auditor. She is playing simple partisan alliance when, as auditor, you need to put politics behind you and do what’s right for the people regardless of their political beliefs. Paul Curtman, we believe, will take an Independent view on the issues and solve them accordingly. No one will be left behind or targeted. Everyone will be treated fairly.
In a state like Missouri, it is not hard to see the change that our new Governor, the honorable Eric Greitens, has pushed. Mr. Greitens and his conservative cabinet have pushed for better public safety and have grown our economy by luring businesses from out of state to invest in Missouri. We can only assure you that Paul Curtman as Auditor will help to grow our economy as well because that is what a leader is. A leader is not an abstructionist like the current auditor we have.
As the 2018 Election process is gearing up, we have a list of candidates who will or are contemplating a run for office. So far, only two candidates have reached our criteria to receive an endorsement from us. Those two are Austin Petersen and Paul Curtman. Both meet our criteria in these categories...
1. Will follow and protect the constitution of the United States.
2. Are Patriotic
3. Present ideas that will help the State/Country out
4. Present solutions to some of our biggest issues
5. Have some political experience (whether that be elected to office or ran for office and lost).
Both Petersen and Curtman have earned our support. We hope each one of them goes on to win, what will be, a true political revolution in 2018.
Join Paul Curtman!
