Democrat Fundraiser in Joplin

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI - The Southwest Missouri Democrats raise money to help pay their Executive Director's salary with a live concert and auction at JB's Downtown, in Joplin.

Candidate for Missouri Attorney General, Senator Scott Sifton, was a special guest.

Organizers say the Executive Director, Krista Stark, is vital to area democrats, especially during campaign season. 

"It's really no secret that A, there aren't a whole lot of us. And B, we don't have a lot of financial resources," Committee Chair Jenevieve Williams said. "So when we have candidates in our area, they usually can't afford to hire their own campaign manager.  So Krista kind of functions as sort of a liaison between the press for area candidates. And then also kind of helps polish them a little bit and get them ready for public viewing."

Stark's position is funded through donations and contributions.
