The Common Good hosted a meet and greet with Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander, hosted by Richard Gordon.
Jason Kander was the Missouri Secretary of State and the youngest statewide elected official in America. Kander is a former Army Captain who served in Afghanistan as a military intelligence officer, a member of the Missouri House of Representatives, and an attorney from Kansas City, Missouri. During his career in the General Assembly, he represented the 44th district (which includes parts of Jackson County) from 2009 to 2013. He ran for the United States Senate against Republican incumbent Roy Blunt in the 2016 election. The Hill has ranked the race #10 of the most vulnerable this year out of two dozen the Republicans are defending.
