Tuesday Primary Election Results

Missourians say no to Proposition A the Right to Work bill that was on yesterday’s (Tuesday) ballot.

Missourians overwhelmingly voted no by a margin of two to one on the proposition that would ban workers from being forced to pay union fees that was originally signed into law by former governor, Eric Greitens last year.

Opponents of the bill gathered enough signatures to put the issue to a vote.

The failure of the bill with the voters will keep right to work from becoming law.

A November showdown is now set between Republican Josh Hawley and Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill for what is described as one of the most vulnerable United State Senate seats.

McCaskill issued an invitation for a debate last (Tuesday) night with Hawley, to which He accepted through a tweet, offering locations in which to hold the political showdowns.

The cities include Rolla, Mexico, Poplar Bluff, Lexington, Kirksville, Hannibal, Hermann and St. Joseph.

McCaskill has not yet responded to Hawley’s proposed debate locations.

Voters in Fulton are giving a green light for Prop K, a tax levy for the school district.

Property owners have decided to increase their property tax to $3.89 per one hundred dollars of assessed value to maintain and improve school facilities, retaining qualified staff and paying increased costs associated with educational programs.

It is estimated that it will generate about 1.2 million dollars per year in revenue.

Fifty six percent of voters approved the measure.

Columbia voters have chosen to allow Columbia Water and Light to issue bonds to pay for water projects.

The bonds, in the amount of $42.85 million dollars, will go to improve the City’s Water treatment plant.

Water customers will likely see an 11% rate increase over 4 years to cover the cost of the bonds. At the end of the four years, the increase will be approximately a $2.71 increase per month.
