State Representative Marsha Haefner, R-Oakville, officially began her second term as a state legislator after being sworn in during a ceremony January 9 in the Missouri State Capitol. Haefner joined 162 other staterepresentatives who were administered the oath of office during opening day proceedingsin the Missouri House of Representatives.
Haefner submitted the letter below about the start of the legislative session:
This week started the new session and the 97th General Assembly in the Missouri House of Representatives. It was an honor to take my oath of office in the middle of the chamber surrounded by so many others that are here because they feel an obligation to step forward and do what they can to make Missouri a better, safer, responsible, and progressive state. Each one of us stood in the great room speaking the words and raising our hand, knowing that we stood there as one person solely representing the districts that had elected us and together representing all of the citizens of the great state of Missouri.
I look forward to the new term, to chairing a committee for the first time, to making the easy votes that make life more enjoyable in our state and also taking the time to take a hard look at language that may be controversial as I make the tough decisions on legislation; striving to better district 95 and Missouri. I would like to thank you again for the great privilege of working for you in the Missouri House of Representatives.
Please stop by the office any time that you are in the building. I look forward to seeing you in the district.
