Missouri Century Foundation Honors Sen. Bob Onder with Inaugural Missouri Centurion Award
JEFFERSON CITY – The Missouri Century Foundation honored State Sen. Bob Onder (R-2) with the foundation’s Missouri Centurion Award.
“Sen. Bob Onder is a champion for Missouri workers and taxpayers, and deserving of our Foundation’s Missouri Centurion Award,” said Gregg Keller, chairman of Missouri Century Foundation. “He has been a tireless advocate to protect the state’s budget from the fiscal mess currently engulfing ObamaCare expansion states. Sen. Onder also led the effort to pass a pro-worker reform bill requiring transparency in government unions during this year’s legislative session.”
The Missouri Centurion Award honors a legislator or legislators who have proven their commitment to advancing forward-looking policies that help ensure the long-term health of Missouri’s economy for all Missourians and the generations to come.
Sen. Onder is the 2015 recipient of the foundation’s inaugural legislator of the year award. Onder in his first year in the Missouri Senate stood out as a thoughtful and vocal opponent of ObamaCare expansion, championed state government workers and their right to have a say in their union representation through SB 549, and consistently supported measures to ensure accountability and transparency of our state government.
The Missouri Century Foundation advocates for strong free market principles to build a strong foundation to improve the livelihoods of Missourians, while holding state leaders accountable for their actions. The foundation is focused on four issues: stopping ObamaCare expansion, protecting Missourians’ rights to assemble and associate, greater transparency in Missouri’s public colleges and universities, and reforming government unions for workers.
