Joplin R-8 Board President sends out campaign fundraising letter

The most contentious Joplin R-8 Board of Education race in recent memory has begun and incumbent Board President Jeff Flowers has opened with a newsletter and a request for money to help fund his campaign.

"I believe this election is a pivotal one for our district and your support could be the difference. I am asking, most importantly, for your vote, but also for any financial support you are willing to give."

Flowers also promises that any "excess money" he receives will be donated to the Joplin Schools Foundation.

The Missouri Ethics Commission does not show that Flowers has formed an official campaign committee. That will be required if he receives $1,000 or more or receives more than $325 from any individual contributor.
