Cynthia Davis to announce run for statewide office Saturday in Springfield
No one requested it, but former state Rep. Cynthia Davis, she of the "hunger can be a great motivator for children" remark, is attempting to stage a political comeback. She issued the following news release Wednesday.
Former Republican and 4-term State Representative, Cynthia Davis, will be making an official announcement on seeking statewide office at 3 Missouri locations:
•Saturday, October 1, 2011, at 11:00 AM in front of the Greene County Court House (Boonville & Central Street) in downtown Springfield, MO
•Sunday, October 2, 2011, at 2:30 PM at the Pioneer Mother statue in Penn Valley Park, just south of downtown Kansas City, MO at Pershing and Main Streets.
•Monday, October 3, 2011, at 12:00 Noon at the statue of St. Louis in Forest Park in front of the St. Louis Art Museum.
Representative Davis chose these locations because she believes that just as it was during the battle of the Civil War, the state and nation again faces a great turning point in our history. It is time for Missouri to rise to the challenges we face and to make our voices heard throughout this nation.
The Kansas City statue of the Pioneer Mother is symbolic of the spirit of this campaign. Like the engraving on the monument, even if our future is fraught with hardship, may it be defined by our trust in God. We are trailblazing a new path for the State of Missouri.
The statue of the famed crusader, St. Louis, was chosen because it marks the beginning of a statewide crusade to make a difference and turn our state, nation and economy around.
