Press Release from Randy Asbury’s Office

State Representative Randy Asbury has announced he will seek re-election to the Missouri House of Representatives in the newly drawn District 6 which includes the northern one-half of Randolph County, Macon County and the eastern portion of Linn County.

“After prayer and numerous considerations, Connie, our children and I have agreed it is our desire to continue to represent our friends in Randolph and southern Macon County. We also look forward to meeting and seeking to gain the confidence and trust of those I aspire to represent in the remainder of Macon County plus eastern Linn,” stated Asbury.

District 6 includes a strong agricultural and business community which fits well with Asbury’s experience, qualifications and committee positions in Jefferson City. He has worked closely with Randolph and Macon County officials over the past year through efforts to retain and create jobs in the area.

In addition to his role as state representative, Asbury has been executive director of the Coalition to Protect the Missouri River since 2001. His responsibility with that group includes representing the economic wellbeing of agriculture, navigation and utility interests. Prior to being elected to the Missouri House, Asbury was Randolph County Associate Commissioner, former deputy director for the Missouri Department of Agriculture, farmer and agribusiness owner.

Asbury presently serves on the Budget, Local Government, Appropriations for Agriculture and Natural Resources Committees and is Vice Chair of the Emerging Issues in Animal Agriculture Committee. He also serves on the Interim Committee for Budget Transparency and the Interim Committee for Strengthening Missouri Families.

Asbury recently received the Associated Industries of Missouri 2011 Friend of Manufacturing and Industry Award for voting 100 percent in favor of policies that promote business in Missouri.

In addition, the Y.O.U.N.G. Conservatives of America indicated that Asbury’s voting record reflects a commitment to individual freedom, personal responsibility and limited government. Asbury was ranked as one of the top five Republicans in the Missouri House of Representatives for his commitment to those issues and his willingness to defend both the Missouri Constitution and the United States Constitution.

“I am excited about the opportunity to serve the citizens of Linn, Macon and Randolph counties. My experience in Jefferson City has been very rewarding and I look forward to representing the citizens of District 6 in a manner that makes them proud and honors Christ.”
