I am writing in support of Louis Riggs who is a candidate for 5th District State Representative.

I have known Louis for many years and find him to be an extremely honest, intelligent, and hard-working individual.

He has been an educator for many years in the classroom and has also talked extensively with teachers of all grade levels. He knows the issues they face and would be a supporter of full funding for education. As a retired teacher, I feel he would be very good for education.

He has had a lifelong interest in government and how it works. He would be very knowledgeable in the bill making process. His background in law will also be a great help in the workings of government. He is a person who would listen to all sides of an issue and would make a decision that would actually solve the issue. He would be able to participate immediately in his job in Jefferson City and wouldn't need a very long learning curve.

Louis has always been very active in community and church activities. He has been involved in many service organizations and in their charitable works over the years. He has also been a devoted family man and has always been involved with his church. He knows that life is precious and would always work to protect it.

Please vote for Louis Riggs for 5th District Representative.
