This November, don’t replace a system that’s good for Missouri’s businesses with a system where any future one-term governor can handpick who they want to sit on Missouri’s highest courts. As a business owner, your decision is crucial. Would you rather have a stable judiciary that does not bend to political whims as we’ve had for 70-plus years or one that can be bought through the office of future governors? Regardless of party affiliations, this proposed new system will cost you money if you want equal representation in the courts.
