I am writing to express my support for Bob Pund, Democratic candidate for 25th District state representative .

I have had the pleasure of working with Bob for the past 10 years. As a colleague in the field of injury prevention, Bob speaks to Missourians about issues of traffic safety and personal choice. He is a powerful and experienced communicator with a natural gift for listening. He routinely steps up to the plate to support key traffic safety legislation by volunteering his time and expertise as a public policy advocate.

Bob has worked on multiple levels of the health care system, including patient advocate, peer counselor, educator and trainer. He has also worked as a legislative advocate for people with disabilities. His diverse background and front-line advocacy experience will make him an exceptional activist, especially for issues pertaining to patient rights and access to health care.

Bob Pund is running for the 25th District state representative seat because he is optimistic about the changes he can bring to state government. He has the knowledge, experience, and heart to make good things happen for us in Jefferson City. I have no doubt that he will be an exceptional state representative.
