Rep Rusty Black Returns Excess Office Funds
State Representative Rusty Black returned about half of his office expense budget to the state. He says he didn’t spend his entire $9,000 plus office budget for the 7th District.
Black says “Financial responsibility with Missouri taxpayer dollars is something that I take very seriously. These are real dollars and cents that should never be wasted, that is why I do my absolute best to keep my office expenditures to a minimum. Fiscal conservatism is something I learned back from my days as being an agriculture teacher, and I am happy to bring that trait to Jefferson City.”
As a member of the Missouri House Budget committee, with a focus on appropriations for education, Black knows just how important every dollar is in the state’s budget.
