Q: What is the most significant issue facing Missouri?

Boyts believes that the most significant issues facing Missouri are jobs and education. “We have to find a way to give incentives to small businesses. Missouri has a lot of potential for job growth, especially in the 140th district.” Boyts also believes that our educational system is not heading in the right direction and would like to be able to get it back on track.

Q: What are the top three items you would like to address as a legislator if (re)elected?

The top three items that Boyts would like to address in office are jobs, education, and the budget. “We need to find a way to create more revenue for the state. But, if we begin to fix the job situation, this will be helpful to this issue.”

Q: Like other states, Missouri is facing difficult financial times. Where would you propose cutting the budget, and which items do you feel need to be preserved?

Concerning the budget, Boyts, “would prefer to not cut the budget at all. There has already been too many cuts made, so the decisions concerning the budget will be tough to make in the future.”

Q: Why are you running for office?

Boyts is running for this office because he is tired of the typical political process. He believes that it is time for common business owner to have a say in our government. “I’m tired of partisan politics; I’m tired of the name calling… When there is an issue in my small business, we sit down, look at the problems, and find a solution, and that’s what I want to do in Missouri’s government.”
