THANK YOU, CITIZENS, OF THE 126TH DISTRICT
Dear Citizens: As I complete my term of office and submit my final capitol report to the citizens of the 126th District, I want to express my appreciation for the opportunity to serve on your behalf these last eight years in Jefferson City. The House committee work, legislative bills carried and passed, constituent activities, and collaboration with colleagues created many treasured memories. Serving during the pandemic made it even more memorable!
Around the 126th District it was an honor to meet and work with each of you through invitations to events, phone calls, emails, and your visits to the Capitol. A special “thank you” to our area newspapers and radio stations who were willing to share on my capitol reports and keep you informed. They are to be commended.
In memory of my late husband, Representative Randy Pike, who served before me, I extend sincere thanks. From my family to yours, best wishes for a blessed 2023.
Continue to Check for Unclaimed Property: Don’t forget to periodically check for unclaimed property in the future. The Treasurer’s Office currently manages over $1 billion in unclaimed assets in more than five million owner accounts. Unclaimed Property is waiting for one in ten Missourians, and the average return is nearly $300. Missourians can search and claim Unclaimed Property year-round at ShowMeMoney.com or on the MO Treasurer’s website.
State law requires financial institutions, insurance companies, public agencies and other business entities to turn over unclaimed assets to the Treasurer’s Office. Most Unclaimed Property consists of cash from bank accounts, stocks, bonds, and contents of safe deposit boxes that have been abandoned. It can also include uncollected insurance policy proceeds, government refunds, utility deposits, and wages from past jobs.
New State Representatives will take office on Wednesday, January 4th and I wish them much success.
