"Tim Jones Doesn't Play Games, He Gets Results"

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Today, Jan. 9, is the opening day of the Missouri General assembly. This Wildwood resident states he is glad about who will be leading in Jefferson City.

I’m personally very pleased state Rep. Tim Jones will be serving as speaker of the Missouri House, and presiding over a 110-member Republican majority during the upcoming legislative session. Our state is facing serious problems, and I know Speaker Jones will do all he can to solve them.

Jones has served as representative from the West St. Louis County area for six years, and during that time he’s earned the trust of our community, building a reputation as a no-nonsense public servant. As majority leader, he worked to get things done while his colleagues in the Senate were busy trying to see how many quotes they could get in the newspaper by talking all day.

Unlike many in Jefferson City, Jones doesn’t play games; he gets results. We need someone who has the initiative to take the lead and pass real reforms. Gov. Jay Nixon has been “leading from behind” for his entire term of office, and I doubt he’s going to have a change of heart. Having a speaker with Jones' “can-do” attitude will be a great asset for our state.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Jones_(politician) "In February, 2009 Representative Jones, at the urging of a constituent, signed a petition and agreed to participate with a large number of other Republicans as a plaintiff in a lawsuit by attorney/dentist Orly Taitz against President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Michelle Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates,. The lawsuit alleged that President Obama is not the lawful Commander in Chief, based on the allegation that he is not a "natural born citizen." However, the lawsuit was dismissed on October 29, 2009 by Federal Judge David Carter" That's a heaping helping of nonsense, Dennis.
