Hello, I’m Barry Hovis and I’m running to serve as your representative for Missouri’s 146th House District. 
I’m looking to continue the success that has blessed Jackson and our surrounding communities with the hometown values we all share.
I want to continue to help small business in the area grow and prosper to benefit the region.
I also want to continue to benefit our local schools and allow our children to be the best they can be and show that our district is a wonderful place to live and raise a family.
And of course, continuing to advance the wonderful park systems and community scenery as beautiful as can be.
I hope that come election day you’ll agree that continuing to keep these values we cherish is the best thing for our region.
~Barry Hovis
