Northwest Missouri State Senator and “No on 3” director Debate Missouri’s Amendment Three

Both sides in Missouri’s Amendment Three November ballot measure presented their case to voters Wednesday night, in a virtual forum hosted by Springfield’s Drury University.

Missourians approved “Clean Missouri” in 2018, which required a nonpartisan demographer to draw state legislative districts. Amendment Three transfers that responsibility to a bipartisan commission.

Cosby GOP State Senator Dan Hegeman sponsored Amendment Three, saying he respects communities of interest, both urban and rural.

But “No On 3” director Sean Soendker-Nickolson disagrees, and says Amendment Three backers have placed a ban on gifts from lobbyists to lawmakers to distract voters from the redistricting issue.

Soendker-Nickolson says Amendment Three’s aim is to create “super safe districts”, where politicians don’t have to worry about voters back home.
