County Commissioners: When Missouri Rural Crisis
Center comes knocking on your door, do not let them in.
Vinnie Clubb, MCA Member from Wayne County
Missouri Rural Crisis Center (MRCC) is based in Howard County, Missouri. Do not
let their rural location fool you. This is a George Soros-funded organization
that seeks to destroy modern agriculture as we know it in Rural Missouri.
commissioners should be on the alert about the Missouri Rural Crisis Center:
They will huff, and they will puff, and they will try to blow your house down –
when it comes to the economic development that modern agriculture brings to our
rural areas. This includes livestock farms all over Missouri.
what I have seen from around the state, when MRCC goes into action, they lobby
county commissions, health boards and others with scare tactics and emotional
pleas not based on sound science. They seek a progressive agenda not just for
more regulations for agriculture, but for Medicaid expansion and much, much
more. I am not impressed by their intentions.
community organizers at best and snake oil salesmen at worst. Missouri Rural
Crisis Center comes to county commissioners to get a foot in the door. Then,
their organizational meetings whip up residents into a frenzy based on fear,
not facts. Social media only makes things worse.
all county commissioners out there in rural Missouri, when the Crisis Center
comes knocking and seeks to make a crisis in your county, I encourage you to
not let them in. Do not open the door. Do not give them the time of day – like
locusts, they come to seek and destroy everything in their path, particularly
county commissions should seek to become Agri-Ready certified by Missouri
Farmers Care. Commissions should meet with the farmers, property owners and
realtors who are working to bring economic development to our area based in our
roots in agriculture.
our rural counties do not accept and promote agriculture, our number one
industry in the state, then what do we promote? Farmers help pay our property
taxes that fund our county roads and bridges and help keep our small towns
going. Perhaps the rural crisis folks would prefer our lands be owned by out of
state interests who don’t purchase feed, fence posts and fuel here. That is not
what I have in mind.
three little pigs, of whom Rural Crisis Center would probably prefer to be
raised in another country instead of in rural Missouri, aren’t safe with MRCC
around. Neither are commissioners who do not have a backbone to stand up to
this radical, leftist organization.
Rural Crisis Center comes to counties, residents, commissioners and others
should not let them in - not by the hair of their chinny-chin-chin.
