State Rep. LaKeySha Bosley says special session on taxes has been a ‘disaster’

With a special session on income tax cuts and agricultural tax credits still ongoing, state Rep. LaKeySha Bosley returned to Politically Speaking and talked about why she feels the debate thus far has been a “disaster.”

Bosley represents Missouri’s 79th District, which takes in a portion of St. Louis. She is running unopposed in November for her seat – which means she will serve in her third term since getting elected to the Missouri House in 2018.

Here’s what Bosley had to say during the show:

  • Bosley was critical of how Republicans had to add members of the House to a committee in order to pass an agricultural tax credit bill last week. It barely got enough votes to make it out of the chamber, but not enough for an “emergency clause” to make the measure go into effect right away.
  • She also said she’s not in favor of a plan to cut Missouri’s income taxes. She said it would help working Missouris to cut taxes on food or diapers – especially since people who make less money don’t pay that much in state income taxes.
  • While Bosley is not optimistic that lawmakers will repeal a law banning abortion except for medical emergencies, she is hopeful that voters could repeal it if a plan makes it to the ballot in 2024.
  • With Missouri’s elections less than two months away, Bosley provided her take on whether Democratic Senate hopeful Trudy Busch Valentine can compete with GOP nominee Eric Schmitt.
  • She also discussed whether African-American candidates are at a disadvantage when running for statewide office, especially since Black candidates have traditionally had difficulty raising money compared to their white counterparts.

Bosley comes from a prominent political family in St. Louis. Her brother, Freeman Bosley Jr., was elected as St. Louis’ first African American mayor in the 1990s. Her father, Freeman Bosley Sr., served on the Board of Aldermen for decades. Another brother, Brandon Bosley, is currently the alderman for St. Louis’ 3rd Ward. And her mother, Lucinda Frazier, is a longtime Democratic committeewoman.

Bosley serves on the powerful House Budget Committee. She also played a major role this past session on congressional redistricting, serving on a House committee that dealt with that topic.

Fresh off party switch, Mark Mantovani promises split from Page on crime prevention and regional growth

Follow Mark Mantovani on Twitter: @MarkForSTL

Republican St. Louis County executive nominee Mark Mantovani is the latest guest on Politically Speaking, where he talked about his return to the electoral fray after two unsuccessful attempts to become the county executive as a Democrat.

The St. Louis County Republican Central Committee tapped Mantovani to replace Katherine Pinner, who withdrew from the contest after her campaign strategy and beliefs about COVID-19 came under intense scrutiny. He’ll face off against incumbent Democratic St. Louis County Executive Sam Page on Nov. 8.

Page recorded an episode of Politically Speaking earlier this summer. You can listen to it here.

Here’s what Mantovani talked about on the show:

  • Mantovani explained why he decided to switch political parties — and whether his prior statements about his views on key issues make him out of step with Republican voters.
  • He also detailed why crime prevention would be a major priority if he’s elected in November. The county executive does not have direct control over the St. Louis County Police Department, but the officeholder is responsible for appointing members of the Board of Police Commissioners.
  • Mantovani also talked about how he would have handled the COVID-19 pandemic differently from Page. After he won his election in 2020, Page’s administration imposed mask mandates that were not enforced – as well as a vaccine mandate for county employees.
  • With less than 50 days to mount a campaign, Mantovani discussed how he would thread a difficult needle to win a county executive contest as a Republican.

Mantovani is a retired business executive who came within 2,000 votes of defeating County Executive Steve Stenger in 2018. The campaign was contentious, with Stenger questioning Mantovani’s Democratic credentials. Mantovani focused some of his campaign on whether Stenger’s actions as county executive corresponded with political donations, a message that was validated when Stenger resigned while facing corruption charges.

He ran again for county executive in 2020, finishing second behind Page in a race that also featured St. Louis County Assessor Jake Zimmerman and Jamie Tolliver.

George Hruza says concerns over economy and crime could catapult him to Missouri Senate

Republican George Hruza is the latest guest on Politically Speaking, where he talked with St. Louis Public Radio’s Jason Rosenbaum about his bid for the 24th state Senate District.

Hruza is seeking to represent the St. Louis County-based district that includes Fenton, Maryland Heights and Kirkwood. He’s running against Rep. Tracy McCreery, an Olivette Democrat who has served in the Missouri House for roughly nine years.

McCreery’s episode of Politically Speaking can be found here.

Here’s what Hruza talked about on the program:

  • His background, which includes how his mother was liberated from a concentration camp and how his family escaped a communist dictatorship in what was Czechoslovakia. 
  • Voters’ concerns about rising inflation and crime, as well as about whether schools are performing as well as they should.
  • His desire to ease Missouri’s ban on abortion. Currently, someone can only get a legal abortion due to a medical emergency. Hruza wants to expand that to include protecting a person’s health and cases in which they became pregnant because of rape or incest.
  • How he’s navigating what most observers believe is the most competitive state Senate race in Missouri this year.

Hruza is a dermatologist who lived for 28 years in Ladue and recently moved to Huntleigh. He ended up filing for the seat after redistricting was finalized and it appeared that the 24th District would be winnable for Republicans.

Hruza defeated attorney Brett Schenck in the GOP primary. He said having a primary was a “godsend,” because it compelled him to start meeting voters early in the election season.
