Despite Globe story, Myers has submitted bid for Joplin license fee office contract

Contrary to what was posted earlier today on the Joplin Globe website, it appears that current Jopiln License Office operator Nick Myers has submitted a bid to retain the office, or at least a firm connected with the Joplin CPA has.

According to the Globe article:

Myers, who is active in state Republican politics and chariman of the Newton County Republican Central Committee, could not be reached for comment on Wednesday. Proposals for the office were submitted by Alternative Opportunities, Glenn D. Wilson, Applus Technolgies, Inc., and Jehu, L.L.C., according to the Department of Revenue web site.

According to the Missouri secretary of state's website, Jehu LLC was incorporated in 2005. Its registered agent is Nick Myers, Joplin.

Myers is the treasurer for Speaker of the House Ron Richard's campaign committee, and has served or serves in that capacity for other Republican candidates.

Gov. Jay Nixon has said politics will not play a role in the awarding of fee office contracts.

Good gosh that would be a mistake to let him run this office in my opinion. Please let it not be.
