JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Today, State Representative Nate Walker has officially filed for the Missouri State Senate in the 18th district.
A REALTOR® and farmer, Representative Walker currently represents the City of Kirksville, the western part of Adair County, Sullivan, Putnam, and Mercer Counties in the Missouri House of Representatives, District 3.
Walker is running for State Senate District 18 to make government smaller and more accountable to taxpayers while providing better service.
“I was raised in a community where hard work was not just a value, but a necessity. The average person now must work over 100 days just to pay their annual tax bill, and that is just wrong,” Walker said. “We work hard just to see those tax dollars go to empty pro-football stadiums and collapsing schools in St. Louis City. Meanwhile, swindlers have nearly bankrupted our communities like Mamtek did in Moberly or the $90 million medical billing scheme, under current federal investigation, did in Putnam County.”
Walker believes that government has grown too big and bloated to serve Missouri citizens effectively.
“Protecting property rights, fighting burdensome regulations, and supporting the end of the inheritance tax on family farms are all priorities for me, because my agriculture background is who I am,” said Walker.
Walker is an avid sportsman, a NRA member for almost 40 years, and a staunch defender of the rights of law abiding gun owners. He has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association for his strong defense of our Second Amendment Rights in the legislature. Walker is a father of two sons and is a strong supporter of pro-life issues. He has been endorsed by pro-life groups and Missouri Right to Life.
The primary election will be held on August 7, 2018.
