JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (Jan. 8, 2009)  Area leaders headed to Jefferson City on the morning of Jan. 8 where they were the guests of State Rep. David Day (R-Dixon) at this year’s annual Governor’s Prayer Breakfast. The annual event kicks off the legislative session, which began Jan. 7 at noon.

Along with hearing from the najority and minority leaders of both chambers and hearing comments by Gov. Matt Blunt and Governor-Elect Jay Nixon, those in attendance also enjoyed hearing the keynote speaker, Catherine Hanaway. Hanaway was the first female Speaker of the House in Missouri’s history and currently serves as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri. Hanaway mixed both an uplifting and positive message with humor.

“I think this is a wonderful way to start off the new session and what makes it even more special is to have friends from the district to share the event with,” Day said. “I hope the message we heard will set the tone for this session; one where while there will be disagreement, hopefully we will continue to work together in a professional manner where all ideas are respected. I am hopeful that the bipartisan attitude that is in the capitol now is one that continues as we begin working for the citizens of Missouri,” Day said.
