Endorsements

Ryan is the only candidate in this race, and one of the very few in the entire state, that has been endorsed by BOTH the Missouri Chamber of Commerce AND the Missouri AFL-CIO. Furthermore, he has been endorsed locally by BOTH the KC Chamber of Commerce BIzPAC in partnership with the KC Civic Council AND the Greater KC AFL-CIO.

This is how Building Consensus is done! While Ryan believes there are times these entities must be on opposite sides and fight over issues, he also believes that while people are fighting over a few issues, it shouldn’t stop all progress on the issues that everyone can agree on.
