THANKS TO VOLUNTEERS FROM PETTISCOUNTY REPUBLICAN CHAIR
wish to express my sincere gratitude to all of the more than 70 volunteers who
worked over 500 hours in the last five days of the campaign "72 Hour Task
Force" and all of the other volunteers who allowed us to accomplish such a
great local success for the Republican Party in PettisCounty. Everyone's hard work paid off with
great dividends locally even in a time when national results were
disappointing. Although Jim Talent lost state-wide, we garnered over 55% for
him in PettisCounty. We won four out of six of the
hard-fought Pettis County races and we were able to retain the 118th State Representative District in the Republican column.
We could not operate the party without all of the
efforts put in by everyone. Each and every one of you did a fantastic job, no
matter what it was. Thank you so very much. Complete PettisCounty state-wide election results are

FROM CARLA YOUNG
I wish to express my sincere gratitude to
all of the more than 120 volunteers who worked over 1000 hours in the last five
days of the campaign "72 Hour Task Force" and all of the other
volunteers who allowed us to accomplish such a great victory for the Republican
Party. Everyone's hard work paid off with great dividends!! President Bush's
margin of victory in PettisCounty was more than
2000 votes above his 2000 race with more than 66% of the votes cast for President.
We won three out of four of the hard-fought local races. We could not operate
the party without all of the efforts put in by everyone. Each and every one of
you did a fantastic job, no matter what it was. Thank you so very much.

Matt Blunt, Republican candidate for Missouri Governor, visited Sedalia on his Bus Tour with a Rally at Convention Hall at
Libery Park in Sedalia on Monday, October 25, 2004. Matt reminded over 120 supporters that he is the only candidate for Governor
representing change. His opponent shares the views of the present Governor on matter such as family issues, tort reform
and the Second Amendment. Farm Bureau President Charles Kruse reminded those in attendance that Matt's opponent opposed the
"traditional" marriage Constitutional Amendment on the August ballot even thought it passed by over 70% of the vote.
Over three thousand local residents gathered at the State Fair Coliseum in Sedalia on Tuesday September 7, 2004 to hear from
President George W. Bush. The President in the "town hall" forum interviewed local citizens about important issues
in their life. Local people introduced by the President included Bill Dugan, Wayne Lamb and Dr. Donald K. Allcorn.
