Nixon: We will continue to move Missouri forward
As 2014 comes to a close, Missouri’s public schools have record funding, our colleges and universities lead the nation in holding down tuition increases, the state’s unemployment rate is at its lowest point in six years, and job creation is on the rise.
In a year of both opportunities and challenges, we succeeded in securing another tuition freeze for Missouri undergraduates, creating thousands of jobs at automotive manufacturers and suppliers, and continuing to expand access to mental health services.
Together, Missourians accomplished a great deal in 2014, but we’re not done yet. Over the next two years, I’m going to work even harder to build a future of greater opportunity and prosperity for families and businesses in our state.
I will lay out my agenda for 2015 in my State of the State Address in January but in the meantime, make sure to visit our website to learn more about what we achieved over the past year and follow me on Twitter for updates on what’s ahead.
Thank you for your support as we continue to move Missouri forward in the new year and beyond.
