As an educator and active member of the Missouri National Education Association and a resident in the 25th District, I look for candidates who will support public education. Support of Missouri public schools is support for Missouri’s future. I have found such a supporter in Mary Still, running for the 25th seat in the Missouri House of Representatives. I have known Mary personally for many years, having taught her youngest daughter at Thomas H. Benton Elementary School. While at Benton, both Mary and her husband, Russ, served on the PTA. While Russ served on the Columbia School Board, Mary continued to mentor students at Benton as a Girl Scout leader for 10 years, volunteered within the community, worked for first Gov. Holden as spokesperson, then worked as spokesperson for the University of Missouri and Att. Gen. Jay Nixon, all while balancing her role as mother and mentor. I personally witnessed her advocate for not only Benton School but other schools in Columbia by providing information to Gov. Holden. Because of her commitment to public education, the Missouri Education Association and the Missouri School Administrators have endorsed Mary Still. Columbia will have no stronger advocate for our schools, our teachers and our entire community than Mary Still. I am proud to give my support to Mary Still.
