On December 10, 2018, the Christian County Democratic Central Committee met for a Special Meeting to recommend someone for the Eastern District Commissioner. After a discussion of possible candidates to send to the Governor, Sue Ann Childers was unanimously chosen. A letter has been sent to Governor Parsons citing Childers’ experience as a past commissioner, her educational qualifications, and her many years as an educator in Ozark. The governor will appoint a replacement for Ralph Phillips early next year. Phillips won the race for Presiding Commissioner, therefore leaving an opening in the Eastern District.

Remembering our holiday party

December 5th, 2015, at the Fremont Hills Country Club, the Christian County Democratic Central Committee had a very successful fundraiser/party. We had two Missouri Democratic candidates and our Democratic County Commissioner speaking, a popular local singer and storyteller entertaining, and the Cattywampus Band enlivening it all. And we all agreed that the dinner provided by Fremont Hills was excellent.

Sue Ann Childers (Christian County Commissioner) began the talks and said she was open to listening to our concerns. Dr. Brad Bradshaw (running for Missouri Lt. Governor) received applause for his stance on Medicaid expansion and he told us of his plans for making Missouri #1 in medical research. Teresa Hensley (running for Missouri Attorney General) spoke to us about her experience as a prosecutor in Cass County and her dedication to seeking justice for all. Marideth Sisco (Ozark storyteller and singer) criticized the hostile environment of political discourse today and challenged us to question those telling untruths. She also sang a couple of her favorite songs. The Cattywampus Band played during dinner and after speeches.

Baskets and pies (prepared by our hardworking members) were auctioned off by Matt Patterson, and silent auction items were awarded to the highest bidder. The Jerry Litton Award was presented to Diane and Kent Stalder by David Lee who spoke of their dedication to Christian County Democrats.

Thanks to everyone who participated and everyone who helped make this lovely party a success (especially the Billedo family)!
