Rep. White endorses Martucci for R-8 Board

Rep. Bill White, R-Joplin, has endorsed incumbent Jennifer Martucci for re-election to the Joplin R-8 Board of Education, according to a posting on Martucci's campaign Facebook page:

I am extremely proud to announce the support of Missouri State Representative Bill White. He understands the importance of strong schools in his legislative district. Thank you, for the generous support!

Rep. White, a Republican, represents parts of Jasper and Newton Counties (District 161) in the Missouri House of Representatives. He was elected to his first two-year term in November 2010.

In addition to his legislative duties, Rep. White is an attorney whose practice has focused on representing children, the elderly, and business law. He previously served as the Juvenile Attorney for Jasper County representing the county juvenile office in juvenile delinquency and abuse and neglect cases. For the past seven years, Rep. White has also worked as a volunteer teacher in the political and social sciences for McAuley Catholic High School. He served in the United States Marine Corps from 1973 to 1976.

The Joplin NEA chapter recently endorsed Martucci, who is running for a three-year term, Lori Musser, who is running for a two-year term, and Chris Sloan, who is running for a one-year seat.
