State Representative launches re-election campaign

State Representative Nate Walker launched his re-election campaign Tuesday night. Walker is currently the Third District State Representative for the Show-Me-State.

Community members turned out to support Walker and learn about his upcoming campaign.

During the upcoming campaign, Walker plans to focus primarily on strengthening the economy and the community. Walker is currently involved in many Kirksville community organizations including the Rotary Club and Arts Association.

The State Representative was excited to get his new campaign kicked off the same way the first one began.

"I have a primary and wanted to get this campaign kicked off in good style, so we are right here where I started," said Nate Walker, (R) Kirksville.

During the next few months, Walker plans to meet with different community members. He will do this by attending parades and hosting events to learn how to better the area.
