Missouri House District 28 Candidate Forum

The League of Women Voters and the Raytown Chamber of Commerce held a candidates forum for the Missouri House 28th District earlier this week.  All six candidates were in attendance.  RaytownOnline.com made a video recording of the forum.  Due to the closeness of the election, to save time, the normal amount of editing to pretty up the footage has not been done. There is about 10 minutes where the view is only the moderator at the podium, when the preferred view would be the candidates. This is at almost the end of the video and the reason is simple, I made a mistake during the file transfer process and did not catch it before the originals were deleted from the camera.  Everything is there, just some of it is not the preferred view.

Raytown Mourns the Passing of Steve Mock

 Raytown has lost one of the Best, Steve Mock. His dedication to community service was unmatched. From sitting on the Board of Aldermen, and various City committees, to working for REAP and other local charities.  Mr. Mock was a rock of stability on the Board of Alderman, the Best Egg-Fest Bunny in costume for the children and humble enough to patrol our streets and highways for litter.

Steve spent his life working to make Raytown a better place and he will be sorely missed.
