Your Opinion: Nixon commended

Dear Editor:

Earlier this year, Gov. Jay Nixon announced his support and proposed plan to improve child care and early education in Missouri. It was my honor to be a part of the governor’s first official meeting after his inauguration to discuss this very issue.

And now I would like to say “thank you” to Governor Nixon for living up to his commitment. Last week the governor announced a $400 million budget freeze on a number of state services to protect the state’s fiscal well-being should his veto of HB253 be overturned. Child care and early education services have been protected from these cuts.

So again, thank you Governor Nixon for recognizing and believing in the importance of the early years and making Missouri’s youngest citizens a priority.
