KBIA’s Jessica Reese recently interviewed Democratic candidate for State Representative in the 47th District, John Wright. He is challenging fellow newcomer to state politics, Republican nominee Mitch Richards, in the Nov. 6th election.
In the interview Wright spoke about higher education, K-12 education, and how he says it’s crucial for job growth in Missouri to continue putting resources into these institutions. He also touched upon ways to promote more small business growth, and how to incorporate rural communities’ commerce, too. Wright discussed how the Affordable Care Act is important for Mid-Missouri, and how using the offered federal funds could benefit the local medical community and people.
