Springfield, MO City Councilwoman Endorses Steelman for U.S. Senate
August 6, 2012
Springfield City Councilwoman Jan Fisk has joined several other area leaders in endorsing the campaign of US Senate candidate Sarah Steelman. In a statement, Fisk said, “Sarah Steelman has a plan. Just last week she issued a written contract to Missouri voters that outlines her commitment to get our country back on track. She sees what is wrong with Washington and she knows what needs to be done to fix it. Sarah’s chief concern is the out of control spending of those in Washington. She wants to balance the budget through an amendment to the Constitution and she wants to restore fiscal discipline.”
Councilwoman Fisk is the latest in southwest Missouri officials who have endorsed Steelman, including Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott and Greene County Auditor Cindy Stein. Steelman is coming off a visit to western Missouri by Gov. Sarah Palin in which Palin highlighted these and other reasons for her support for Steelman. They are contained in Steelman's "Contract with Missouri," (available here: http://www.sarahsteelman.com/pages/sarahs-contract-with-missouri) in which she details the legislation she will sponsor or cosponsor in her first 60 days in office.
