WE DID IT!
On November 6th, John Mayfield was elected as Missouri State Representative of the 20th district. It was a hard fought race, but in the end, the voters decided who they felt would best serve their interests in Jefferson City. Some words from State Representative-elect John Mayfield:
First of all, I give credit to my lord and savior Jesus Christ. I feel blessed that the people of the 20th District have enough confidence in me to serve in Jefferson City, my team: Amanda Morris, Jeff and Bonnie Jones, and Jessica Podhola. I thank Representative Lasater for his two years of service. I was expecting a very close race, a very difficult race. I will make sure to do the best job I can for the people in the district and in Missouri. – John
