Letter from Rick

Gov. Nixon:

I had to write to encourage you to release the funding for the Tour of Missouri. While it is true I'm not a Missouri voter, I am an avid cycling fan who planned to come to Missouri and spend money this September, and I have been talking up the Tour of Missouri to friends from as far away as Indiana, Alabama and Mississippi who also were considering a trip to Missouri this year. If what the state really needs is additional revenue, tourism dollars from the Tour would be one very good means of attracting people and their wallets. The Tour has become one of the premier cycling events in the country, and it would be deplorable if the State were to be so short-sighted as to take steps that would result in the cancellation of an event that could otherwise be a financial boon to the state.

Please release the funds for the Tour of Missouri.
