Notables included State Representative Jeanette Mott Oxford, St. Louis Alderman Shane Cohn, and longtime activist Philip Deitch. The diverse group of about 20 mingled and shared their thoughts on the recent election and the coming year. Jeanette Mott Oxford, the first openly lesbian member of the Missouri Legislature, said with a large Republican majority the next two years will be tough ones in Jefferson City but she will try to find areas of ommon ground as she has done in the past.
Groups such as this seem to be incubators for our next crop of leaders, and anyone meeting Danny Gladden would assume he was already in office. Smart, outgoing and well versed on the issues, Gladden spoke to each guest.
There is much work to do before the next round of elections and this group of political veterans and newcomers is ready to hit the ground running.
