Statement from State Senator Kevin Engler

State Senator Kevin Engler released this statement yesterday, and even gave us a shout out...

“I am extremely distraught after learning of Governor Nixon’s actions to put this year’s Tour of Missouri in jeopardy. This race is a smart investment during tough economic times. The state’s $1.5 million investment yields nearly $30 million in revenue.

“The cancellation of this race will result in the breach of numerous contracts, leave the state susceptible to millions of dollars in legal fees, and waste the effort and money already put forth by organizers, cities, private citizens, and the state.

“The decision to jeopardize the future of this race shows that the Governor is severely irresponsible. For more details on this issue, I urge everyone to visit and to call 573-751-3222 and urge Jay Nixon to save the tour.”

-Sen. Kevin Engler
