Missouri Times: Rizzo replaces Walsh as minority floor leader in Senate
"JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Democratic state Sen. John Rizzo is the newest minority floor leader following the resignation of Sen. Gina Walsh.
“Missouri families are tired of having a legislature that hands out favors to the special interests while everyday citizens get left behind,” Rizzo said. “Across the state, more Missourians are getting on board with Democratic efforts to make health care more affordable, government more accountable, and an economy that works for everyone. The Democratic Caucus is fighting for commonsense values in the Senate, and we look forward to achieving more victories for Missouri families.”
In Jeff City this news is making waves but it's regrettable that Kansas City media are falling behind in their statehouse coverage.
The reality: State Senator Rizzo has always worked diligently for the benefit of his constituents behind the scenes but he breaks the mold of KCMO left-wing progressives given his strong support of unions and the working-class. Meanwhile, public radio and newspaper "journalists" are more concerned with a small clique of social justice warriors who have far fewer legislative accomplishments and little influence by comparison.
We know quire a few supporters of Sen. Rizzo who might not like mention of an old school controversy but we feel it's necessary and provides perspective . . . A handful of Northeast haters can't let go of a long ago vote from 2009 - The case was used by Kris Kobach and others to try and suppress voters in subsequent elections but nothing ever came of it. Since then, below the radar, State Senator Rizzo has garnered one impressive election victory after the next. Meanwhile, his opponent dropped out of the political scene, engaged in a lawsuit over "issues" with the VA and got arrested with a gun in a Hong Kong airport last time we checked.
Accordingly . . .
He's young, skilled, taller than average and a family man who has garnered a decade of experience representing his constituents -- State Senator John Rizzo should/must be the answer for Missouri Democratic Party denizens who desperately need leadership and a real connection with working people as the 2020 election approaches.
