AFP targets ‘no’ vote districts on RTW

DOE RUN, Mo. – House Republicans who voted no on Right to Work legislation this past session are seeing constituents receive mailers on the subject as veto session approaches.


Rep. Linda Black, R-Doe Run, reached out to friends and constituents who may have been confused by the mailer, further clarifying that she will not be changing her vote. The mailer was sent by Americans For Prosperity (AFP).

“This post is to clarify a mailer that went out to my constituents in House district 117-St. Francois Co. (Bonne Terre, Desloge, Leadwood, Park Hills, Bismarck, Farmington, IML, Leadington and rural communities),” Black wrote on Facebook.

“The mailer was NOT sent out by my office. It is a solicitation asking people to call my office and ask that I vote for RTW.

“Over the past 7 years I’ve been in office I’ve had thousands of my constituents call in, write and visit the Capitol who oppose RTW. There are a few (20 or less) who support RTW. Those totals speak for will of the majority and I will continue to oppose RTW.”

The mailer comes weeks after a billboard went up in Farmington asking people to call Rep. Kevin Engler, R-Farmington, to encourage him to change his vote.

The House had 92 yes votes for SCS HCS HBs 116 & 569 – 17 votes short of the 2/3 needed for an override.
