JEFFERSON CITY, MO: At their first official State Committee meeting, the Missouri Constitution Party elected new officers to its Executive and State Boards. Among other national and state appointments, 11 newly appointed members to the State Committee were introduced.

Special guest speakers included the Party’s National Chairman and stand-in nominee for President of the United States, Jim Clymer, who gave a heartfelt speech on “When Free Men Shall Stand – Restoring the Blessings of Liberty”. Gary Odom, the National Committee’s Field Director, offered an up-to-date report of the Party’s rapid growth throughout the country.

Odom made a surprise announcement that the Constitution Party National Presidential/Vice-Presidential Nominating Convention will be held in Kansas City, MO in the spring of 2008. This is the second national convention held in Missouri; the first one being in 1999 in St. Louis.

Travis Maddox, the newly elected Vice-Chairman and Ballot Access Coordinator, reported the current signature count for ballot access. MO Election Law requires 10,000 signatures from registered voters in order to be recognized as a political party. Maddox believes the goal will be attained by Constitution Day, September 17, 2007, and that potential candidates need to begin submitting applications as soon as possible.

The Constitution Party is the third largest political party in America that offers a real change. More information about the Constitution Party can be found on the Internet at or by calling their headquarters in St. Louis at (314) 956-6181 or in Springfield at (417) 759-6066
