I have lived in the 136th Legislative District for over 40 years. A young man, James Owen, is walking the district and visiting with the people. I have visited with James Owen and he gives me a real choice in this election. Owen listened to my concerns about the direction of state government. He has a personal background of being raised on a farm and worked his way through college. He is a probate lawyer who helps people through tough times. He teaches at Drury part-time. He is a good, young Christian man who looks to his faith in decision-making. As a young Christian man he knows the Christian thing to do is help people in need. He is committed to public schools and has some exciting ideas. .
