Lt. Governor Candidate Judy Baker To Visit Moberly

February 12, 2012


The special guest speaker at the February meeting of the Randolph County Democrat Club will be former State Representative and Congressional candidate Judy Baker from Columbia who recently announced her candidacy for Missouri Lieutenant Governor. She cited her commitment to creating jobs and continuing to champion initiatives that help seniors lead active lives and assist veterans in transitioning back to civilian life in her announcement.

The meeting will be at Nelly’s on February 16, with social time at 6:00, dinner at 6:30, and program/meeting at 7:00. Hosts for the evening are Jerry and Neta Crutchfield, taking reservations at 660-277-4713 or 660-456-7146 by 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday the 15th. It is especially important to RSVP as Democrats from surrounding counties are being invited to join us as well for this special opportunity. Statewide candidates, even this early, find it very challenging to appear in person in all 114 Missouri counties, so please take this opportunity to attend. Democratic candidates for local offices are encouraged to attend as well.

Judy Baker left the Missouri House of Representatives in 2008 to run for the U. S. Congress against now Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer in the old 9th Congressional District, getting more votes than any Democrat in 20 years in the mostly rural district. “I was proud to have strong grassroots support in my last effort and will work tirelessly in this campaign to energize ordinary Missourians looking for fresh leadership,” said Baker.

During her public service, Baker has worked on non-partisan approaches to challenges facing Missouri families. She led efforts to assist seniors to remain in their homes and to provide enhanced services to returning veterans facing mental health challenges. “Missouri deserves a Lt. Gov. who understands its needs and will work with the legislature to help enact Governor Nixon’s jobs agenda,” Baker said. “As we work to create jobs across the state, promoting a high quality health care workforce to meet the growing needs of our seniors must be part of that agenda.”

Baker holds a Master of Divinity degree from Southern Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, and a Masters in Healthcare Administration from the University of Missouri. Prior to running for the state house, Baker served as interim Executive Director MU’s University Physicians practice plan. Most recently, she served as the Regional Director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for Region VII comprising Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa.

“Missouri’s Lt. Gov. serves on boards that directly affect our lives in healthcare, elder care, and veterans’ issues, Baker said. “My experience in the healthcare field and in veterans’ issues during my career will serve me well as Lieutenant Governor as I work to held build our economy and create jobs, and to improve the quality of life for all Missourians.”
