    It is a special honor to endorse Sonya Anderson for State Representative of the 131st District. Her business experience as an officer in the corporate sector, as well as her background growing up on the family farm has laid the ground work for her understanding of issues that can and will emerge on a daily basis. I know she will be a tireless and dedicated servant for the people she represents. Sonya will not only listen to her constituents' concerns and problems, but when she casts in the legislature she will stand firm. She will not be influenced by others with an opposing agenda.

    Dennis Hobbs

    Dear Neighbor,

    The job of our State Representative is to be sure every tax dollar is spent wisely and that our 131st District gets our fair share returned for our schools, safe highways, adequate law enforcement and other essential programs. While that Sonya Murray-Anderson’s main priority, she will also be a strong voice for good legislation and a fierce opponent to bad proposals in the General Assembly.

    Sonya Murray-Anderson is a life-long resident of our area living just outside Springfield near Glidewell. She and her families of Grandparents, parents and aunts and uncles are small business owners and farmers. She grew up involved in successful business and farming ventures and is a hard worker. It takes a hard working individual willing to spend the hours necessary to do the job. That is what we need in Jefferson City and other legislators will listen to her reasoned positions on legislation.

    Let’s not make the mistake of sending someone to represent us who is only looking for a retirement benefit and has an unfortunate record of business failure. Some one who has proven they cannot manage their own affairs certainly does not have the ability to work for our best interests in the Missouri General Assembly.

    Call Sonya and visit with her about her credentials and skills and your concerns and priorities for good government. Her education, business and farming experience and communication skills make her the best candidate to be the 131st District Representative. She will listen to you, accept your advice and take your message with her to represent all of us.

    And, I welcome your call if I may speak further about Sonya Murray-Anderson and why I am supporting her for State Representative in the 131st Legislative District of Northern Springfield and Northern Greene County.

    Best Regards,

    Dennis Hobbs

    N. Frank Childers, Pastor
    Glidewell Baptist Church

    I have known of Sonya Anderson all of her life but have, during the past four years became closely associated with Sonya, her husband and two sons as Pastor of the Church where Sonya and her family attend on a regular basis. There is really only good things that can be said about her and her family.

    Sonya, as an active member of her Church, has served the Church in numerous teaching positions and has also served faithfully over the years in leadership positions. I am really excited about her being a candidate for the Missouri State Representative for District 131. I have no doubt that she will be committed to serving her constituency in an enthusiastic and dedicated manner. I believe this to be true in that she goes about every task she undertakes in this manner. I see her doing so as a wife, mother and a business person as well as a Church worker.

    I have no doubt that Sonya Anderson will contribute a fresh, well informed and capable outlook toward the issues facing the State of Missouri. I wholly endorse Sonya Anderson without reservation as a candidate for Representative.

    One of the problems that we face as Americans is the fact that many of the people running for political office are the least desirable for the job. Too often, we have to select from the lesser evil, and I find my vote being more against one than for the other. It is with a grateful heart that I give my recommendation and support to Sonya Anderson. She is definitely a vote "For", and having people like her in office will go a long way to restoring the America that we all love and remember.

    I have known Sonya for many years, and she has never failed to do the right thing. Her husband, Jim, is a good personal friend, and I find the Andersons to be honest, thoughtful, charitable and generous to a fault. You will find no better candidate on any ticket than Sonya Anderson. She has already done so much more behind the scenes than most know, it is time to put her in the spotlight. Let your vote carry some weight for a better Missouri, and vote for Sonya.

Sonya and her husband Jim are to be admired in the way they approach life, parenthood and citizenship. We are happy to offer our endorsement for Sonya Anderson for Missouri State Representative.

    Dr. Sarah Phillips, DVM

    I am excited to offer my endorsement of Sonya Anderson for State Representative. I have known Sonya for several years and have always known her to be an honest, family and agriculture oriented individual. She and I have served on the Cross Roads Stock Horse Association for a number of years now, and she excels at whatever tasks and leadership roles she accepts. Sonya is a hardworking person who understands the needs of rural Missouri. We need people like her in Jefferson City.

    A. Lee Rollins, President
    Cross Roads Stock Horse Association

    It is with great pleasure that I offer my endorsement of Sonya Anderson for State Representative. Sonya is an honest, hard-working supporter of programs that seriously affect Missouri and its citizens. She has been tireless in her efforts, not only behind the scenes, but in leadership roles. In my experience with her through the Cross Roads Stock Horse Association, I’ve found that when you ask Sonya to take on a responsibility you never have to check back. She just gets it done! She and her husband Jim are good, honest people that are you can respect and count on. Sonya is an intelligent, informed citizen that goes beyond the call. Missouri needs people like her in leadership roles and I whole-heartedly recommend her to Represent us in an informed manor with no hidden agenda.

  • Sanctity of Life

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. ~Declaration of Independence

     

    Pro Life: Life is sacred and Sonya firmly believes life begins at conception. As your State Representative, Sonya is committed to protecting the rights of the unborn and will oppose any legislation that provides tax dollars for abortions.

  • Property Rights

    Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own. ~James Madison

     

    The purpose of our government is to protect our rights, not take them away. Property rights and liberty go hand in hand. Our Founding Fathers understood that property rights are the cornerstone of a free society and therefore these rights must be protected.

    Due to increasing government regulations at the federal, state, and local levels, private property rights are becoming more and more strained. To protect property owners, our Founders gave us the Fifth Amendment, which includes the “Taking Clause.” This clause states that private property shall not be taken for a public use, without just compensation.

    We must hold our government accountable and strengthen our property rights to make sure property owners are justly compensated when eminent domain authority is implemented constitutionally.

  • 2nd Amendment

    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. ~Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

     

    The Founders created the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to protect the liberties of individuals. They recognized that without a blue print that limited governmental power, the rights of the people could be threatened and violated. The Bill of Rights represents the fundamental freedoms that are at the heart of our society and that includes the right to bear arms.

    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. —Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

    Sonya is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and will uphold the rights of eligible citizens to defend and protect themselves.

  • Agriculture

    I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares. ~George Washington

     

    Agriculture is Missouri’s number one industry. Our state has the second highest number of farms in the nation. According to the 2007 Agriculture Census, livestock production accounted for 53% of our state’s agricultural receipts.

    Sonya understands the importance of this industry and feels that less government intrusion will allow the farmer and rancher to continue their livelihood, which in turn helps our economy and sustains our nation.

  • Economy

    It is not my intention to do away with government. It is rather to make it work -- work with us, not over us; stand by our side, not ride on our back. Government can and must provide opportunity, not smother it; foster productivity, not stifle it. ~Ronald Reagan -First Inaugural Address, January 20, 1981

     

    The competitive or free market system, which allows for private enterprise and competitive capitalism, is essential in maintaining the American way of life. In the free market system, anyone—regardless of age, ethnicity or education—is able to achieve financial success. Competition within the market helps to generate lower prices to the public and helps create new jobs. These principles, working together, help to fuel the economy as a whole.

    As your Representative, Sonya will work hard to remove unnecessary government restraints that hinder America’s free market system.
