Missouri Votes In First Black Woman To Represent The State In Congress


A  woman community leader has become the first who is of a minority ethnic origin to represent the state to get a seat in congress. She has unseated the incumbent who hails from a dynasty that has held on to the seat for a very long time indeed. She is also the single parent mother and nurse by profession to now hold the seat. Her joy was evident as she celebrated and danced with supporters. Three is a charm it is said as this is her third attempt. This time however she made sure she had backing and funds to back her attempt. She stated that this was a victory for the unrepresented, the sidelined and ignored in society.

Her community work helped her immeasurably to become popular enough to gain the trust of voters. It is yet another first in the very important US election.

Matthew is our Founding Father who updates you on everything that is crucial for the U.S. When little Matthew used to be asked who he wanted to be when he grew up, the answer was "Elvis". That was a long-lasting effect that the 3-year-old Matthew got from watching an Elvis impersonator contest on TV. His parents spent the next decade quietly dreading that he would run away to Hollywood one day. Instead Matthew won a scholarship in Barcelona, graduated in Business Administration and spent four years building a career in HR. Journalism was a happy accident that Matthew got into thanks to a girlfriend; she was an intern at The Denver Post. Starting with copywriting gigs, he quickly moved to the more serious stuff for The Working In, FigureIT, and The County Watch. Matthew currently resides in good old Denver, keeping a watchful eye on everything that makes America tick. And yes, he still loves Elvis. Email:moran@regionalusa.com
