Today is the first day of the new Eric Greitens administration along with other state-wide executives.  We sincerely hope all of our elected officials hear the voices and needs of all Missourians, regardless of political affiliation.  For our state to succeed and grow, government must function with everyone's best interest in mind.  We wish Governor Greitens and all of our office holders well.
