Text of Congressman Lacy Clay's Speech Endorsing Koster for Attorney General

KOSTER ENDORSEMENT EVENT
CARTER CARBURETOR
MONDAY, 1 PM
7.7.08

GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE.

IíM PLEASED TO BE STANDING WITH SO MANY GOOD PUBLIC SERVANTS WHO SHARE MY COMMITMENT TO CLEANING UP ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS LIKE CARTER CARBURETOR.

NO NEIGHBORHOOD SHOULD HAVE TO LIVE WITH THIS KIND OF EYE SORE.

HIGHLY CONTAMINATED SITES LIKE THIS ARE A REAL THREAT TO PUBLIC HEALTH AND AN INSULT TO THE GOOD PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND CLEANING UP PLACES LIKE THIS ARE PART OF KEEPING GOVERNMENTíS COMMITMENT TO KEEPING OUR NEIGHBORHOODS SAFE AND LIVABLE.

THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATIONS,

IN BOTH WASHINGTON AND JEFFERSON CITY,

DONíT BELIEVE IN THAT.

BUT I HAVE GREAT HOPES FOR THE NEXT ONES!

AND STEP ONE IN CHANGING THE WAY THAT MISSOURI DEALS WITH HAZARDOUS ENVIRONMENTAL SITES LIKE THIS,

IS ELECTING AN ATTORNEY GENERAL WHO HAS THE COURAGE TO GO AFTER POLLUTERS,

ABSENTEE OWNERS,

AND TOXIC DUMPERS,

TO MAKE THEM CLEAN UP THEIR MESS.

TODAY I AM VERY PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE MY SUPPORT FOR A GREAT PUBLIC SERVANT WHO HAS SHOWN JUST THAT KIND OF COURAGE.

HE HAS PROTECTED THE RIGHTS OF VICTIMS IN THE COURT ROOM,

HE HAS FOUGHT TO KEEP MISSOURI ON THE CUTTING EDGE OF LIFESAVING RESEARCH,

AND IN THE MISSOURI SENATE,

WHEN HE SAW THAT HIS FORMER PARTY HAD SURRENDERED TO THE FORCES OF:

INTOLERANCE;

CORRUPTION;

EXCLUSION;

AND A BLIND ALLEGIANCE TO TURNING BACK THE CLOCK IN MISSOURI;

HE HAD THE COURAGE AND GOOD SENSE TO CROSS OVER INTO THE LIGHTÖ AND COME ON OVER TO OUR SIDE!

===

CHRIS KOSTER IS A GREAT PROSECUTOR,

A SKILLED LEGISLATOR,

AND HE WILL BE A POWERFUL ADVOCATE FOR KEEPING MISSOURIANS SAFE,

PROTECTING CONSUMERS,

GOING AFTER POLLUTERS,

AND FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE.

HE IS MY CHOICE FOR MISSOURI ATTORNEY GENERAL, AND I AM VERY PROUD TO ENDORSE HIM.

AND NOW, ITíS MY PLEASURE TO INTRODUCE, MISSOURIíS NEXT ATTORNEY GENERAL,

STATE SENATOR CHRIS KOSTER.
