Ethics reform called for in Nixon's State of the State Address

Nixon said part of people’s business is ethics reform.

“The people of Missouri need to know that their elected representatives are working in the public interest and not for personal gain,” Nixon said.

In his speech, Nixon said currently anyone can write a check for any amount of money that can persuade elections.

“We need to set strict limits on campaign contributions that are undermining the sovereignty of the people and subverting the fundamental principle of free and fair elections,” Nixon said.

Nixon ended his address saying regardless of differences in opinion and disagreements, the goal of each party is common good.

“It’s worth remembering that we all serve the people of Missouri,” Nixon said.
