Great day here in Mid-Missouri…
— I had the privilege of touring Central Missouri Subcontracting Enterprises (Sheltered Workshops) this morning. Bruce and his crew are doing fantastic work and hitting a really important niche that provides employment opportunities for individuals who need them most.
— I thoroughly enjoyed a tour of First Chance for Children this afternoon, as well as a really great chat with the staff re: early childhood issues, helping lift Mid-Missourians out of poverty, and working together to change the rhetoric and political dialogue re: the working poor in our country.
These are two great organizations doing really important things for folks in our community who need a voice, and I can’t thank them enough for helping fight that fight!
