Walter Burnett (Daviess County) Representing ABCD Region of Andrew, Buchannan, Caldwell, Clinton, Daviess & DeKalb Counties
I was born in Boone County, Missouri. I graduated from Hickman High School and had four years of apprenticeship school and some college. Peggy and I have been married for 59 years. We have two sons, four grandchildren and three step-grandchildren. I’m a retired sheet metal worker (40 years) and a semi-retired farmer (60 years).
I was a member and president of the Boone County Pork Producers, a Member of the Columbia Young Farmers, treasurer of the Columbia Labor Council, and I’m a member of the Daviess County senior tax board. I am a U.S. Army veteran and a member of the American Legion. I’m also a member of Perche Baptist Church.
I volunteered at the Pattonsburg Senior Center-collected many donations and worked at the fish fry-delivered meals-washed dishes-maintained water heater, furnace, air conditioner, cook stove-helped paint inside of the center, and blew insulation in the attic. I also attend the Gallatin Senior Center and keep them informed.
As a Silver Haired Legislator, I connect with the state legislators by telephone to let them know what issues seniors are concerned about. If I’m elected again as a delegate, I will enjoy going to meetings, talking with the other legislators, and working for the benefit of all Missouri senior citizens.
Debora Snider (Daviess County) Representing ABCD Region of Andrew, Buchannan, Caldwell, Clinton, Daviess & DeKalb Counties
I have enjoyed being your Silvered Haired Legislator for the past two years, and would really like to continue to a be a delegate for the next term. It has been my pleasure working with seniors in the community and Daviess County. While interacting with seniors I hope to hear more about their needs and concerns. I have been working diligently to spread the word about the wonderful things Silver Haired Legislator stands and works for in our community. Spending time with the Silver Haired Members at the Fall session at the Capital meetings were very informative. I am looking forward to participating with State Legislators in Jefferson City and I am looking forward to continue participation in bringing this information back to our community. My continued work with our local senior center has opened my eye to more of the needs for the seniors in our community. Volunteering with our county election has help me to see more needs for other seniors in our area.
