It’s hard to believe but we’re now halfway through my first year serving as State Representative. Since the Legislature is on Spring Break this week, I thought it would be a perfect time to share a quick update on the causes I’ve been fighting for in Jefferson City and on my future plans.
As I promised during my campaign, I’ve dedicated my energy to increasing accountability in government, promoting private sector job growth, and protecting the Constitutional rights of all Missourians. So far I’ve introduced 5 bills and co-sponsored 6 others which are consistent with those goals. I’m proud to report that none of my bills will cost taxpayers more than $26,000. When you consider my bill to free Jeff Mizanskey, who is serving a sentence of life without parole for nonviolent marijuana offenses, the net effect of my proposals would be to save Missouri taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars.
I’ve been proud to vote with my colleagues in the House in support of several commonsense conservative reforms. We’ve passed bills on education reform, photo ID, right-to-work, welfare reform, and cutting red tape for small business. I will be seeking re-election in 2016 so that I can continue fighting for the values that led me to run in the first place.
My plan for this year is to build up enough strength through fundraising that I can avoid a primary and a general election opponent next year. This way, I can focus on helping my colleagues who have tough campaigns. Can I please count on your support with a contribution of $100, $50, or whatever you can afford? You can contribute online by clicking on the Donate button at the top of this website, or you can send a check payable to “Citizens for Dogan” to 212 Oakwood Farms Ct., Ballwin, MO 63021.
The deadline for my 1st quarter fundraising is next Tuesday, March 31 so I would be VERY grateful if you could make a contribution before then. I look forward to working hard during the rest of our session and making all of my constituents and supporters proud. Thanks so much for your support!
