U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill was in Chillicothe Wednesday afternoon, addressing topics of infrastructure, health care and regulation reductions. Her stop was part of a 25 town hall tour across the state. While in Chillicothe, the senator answered questions on the importance of rebuilding the state’s rural infrastructure, ensuring access to quality and affordable healthcare, tax reform that benefits the middle class, and reducing overregulation on Missouri’s small businesses and farmers. “The best way for Missourians to know that their voices are heard in Washington is for me to show up, and hear them in person,” said McCaskill, who was raised in rural Missouri. “Whether they agree with me or not, every Missourian is my boss, which is why I consider it a must, to go to every corner of the state I love, to hear those ideas and concerns directly, and hold myself accountable to Missourians.” Prior to the town hall in Chillicothe, McCaskill made stops in Bethany and Cameron, and ended the day with a town hall meeting in Trenton.
