House of Medicine Wins in General Election
MSMA members went two-for-two in their House of Representatives races. In the House’s 30th district, Rep. Jon Patterson, MD, (left), easily handled his Democratic opponent to win his second term representing Lee’s Summit. Dr. Patterson took 57.2% of the vote. Rep. Lisa Thomas, MD, (middle), was unopposed in district 124. This will be her first term in Jefferson City. She represents the Lake of the Ozarks area. MSMA member, Sam Page, MD, (right), won his race for the County Executive of St. Louis County.
A number of spouses of MSMA members will be in Jefferson City next year: Sen. Bill White (Joplin), Rep. Trish Gunby (Manchester), and Rep. Wes Rogers (North Kansas City).
The Senate seat of MSMA member Sen. Bob Onder, MD, wasn’t up for grabs last night, so we’ll see Sen. Onder back in the capitol in a couple of months as well. A number of other friends of MSMA won their Senate and House races. In total, we believe the results will prove beneficial to Missouri physicians.
