Quite A First Month On The Job: Kansas City's Newest Missouri State Representative
Last November, Rep. Barbara Anne Washington became the newest legislator to represent Kansas City in the Missouri General Assembly. An attorney and former journalist, she has long been engaged with politics, but nothing could have prepared her for the onslaught of legislating, which she says is a full-time job, not to mention the political turmoil of her first month in office. In her first visit to Statehouse Blend Missouri, Washington talks about proposed cuts to higher education funding, the governor's affair, and the first bill she's sponsoring, which would raise the age for Missourians to be tried as adults.
