Standing with Party leaders, colleagues and announces he will run again
Kansas City, MO – Alongside a host of his colleagues, friends and members of the business and labor communities, Attorney General Chris Koster last night announced he is running for a second term.
“For nearly three years, I’ve had the privilege of serving the people of Missouri. I have tried to stand up for the values we share: an absolute commitment to law enforcement, to protecting consumers, and conserving Missouri’s environment,” said Koster, at the home of Jackson County Democratic Party Chairman Steve Bough. “It’s been a job I am proud of and one I look forward to continuing.”
“Our office has consistently produced results. We are currently prosecuting more than 50 homicides across our state with a team of Missouri’s most experienced prosecuting attorneys. We have recovered more than $100 million dollars stolen from Missouri’s Medicaid system. When the news cameras packed up and left Joplin, we remained hard at work— protecting against scam artists of every stripe. We fought the federal government on the breach of the Birds Point Levee in southeast Missouri, and we faced down the auto warrantee industry when they ripped off consumers in a series of unprecedented insurance scandals. From white collar crime to animal cruelty to domestic violence, we have raised the bar for what the law can do to protect our citizens,” said Koster.
Guests at Party Chairman Steve Bough’s home included State Party Chair Susan Montee; County Executive Mike Sanders; Sheriff Mike Sharp; State Senator Jolie Justus; State Representative Jason Kander, County Legislator Theresa Garaza Ruiz; Kansas City Mayor Pro Tem Cindy Circo; Kansas City Councilmembers Jim Glover, Jan Marcason, Scott Wagner; and The Jackson County Democratic Committee.
