◄ “Ed Emery informs and inspires citizens to join the battle for tax reform, community protection, sanctity of life and Constitutional principles — all areas in which his wisdom and leadership were sought in Jefferson City… Ed distinguished himself in the Missouri legislature. He is both a social and fiscal conservative leader. Your family and community will be strengthened with Ed in the Missouri Senate. I recommend and endorse Ed Emery as your state Senator! — Rabbi D. F. Eukel, founder & chairman Leaders Lead Locally Institute

Emery as a man of conviction and action, and we know that he will take his experience as an effective state representative with him into the state Senate. Rep. Emery’s moral virtue and his established record of hard work in defense of Missouri families give him a strong foundation for representing his constituents in Jefferson City. We are confident that Rep. Emery will continue to fight effectively to defend and strengthen Missouri families “ — Bev Ehlen, state director for the Concerned Women for America

◄ “I heartily endorse Ed Emery in the primary election for state Senate District 31. I served with Ed in the Missouri House and observed the character and consistency I want in my elected officials. He is committed to the people he serves and showed unwavering principle in spite of political pressure. Ed wants to empower the people, not enhance his own political future. He promotes limited government and opposes policies that kill jobs and prosperity. He fought to defend his constituents from unconstitutional or unreasonable government, and I have seen no stronger advocate for individual liberty and the free market economy than Ed Emery.” — Sen. Rob Schaaf

◄ “Of all the legislators I have met, there is not one that I would more highly recommend than Ed Emery.

We can trust Ed to tell us the truth, to work hard and to fight for conservative family values.” — Former Rep. Rex Rector

◄ “I was privileged to be Ed’s seat-mate in the House, and I know him well. He is hard working; he is honest; and he has the highest degree of integrity.

We also ran against each other in the 28th Senatorial race and continue to be friends. Ed represented his district with honesty and integrity, and stood strong for his conservative values. I admire Ed Emery for what he stands for. And I hope you, the voters, will seriously consider Ed for a very serious position as your next state senator.” — Former Rep. Larry Wilson

◄ “With our economy remaining stagnant, it has never been more important to send candidates to Jefferson City that will aggressively fight for fiscally conservative policies. We believe these eight candidates [including Ed Emery in Senate District 31] have what it takes to make the bold economic decisions that will benefit all Missourians.” — Larry Schuster, chairman Missouri Club for Growth Political Action Committee

◄ “Ed Emery is the kind of fiscal conservative that I can get behind. He believes in constraining government spending, replacing a tax system that unfairly restricts prosperity, and reducing unnecessary regulations on small businesses to stimulate growth. Missourians are looking for true leadership during these tough economic times, and I believe Ed is the man to provide that leadership in District 31 and for all Missouri.” — Sen. Chuck Purgason

He has a determined, responsible, but gentle personality, which will embrace the need and welfare of all he will represent. I encourage you to vote yes for Ed Emery for state senator of Missouri.” — Rev. Larry E. Garfield

 ◄ “I am endorsing Ed Emery for Missouri state Senate. Ed met with me at a prayer meeting in Clinton held by the Gideons back in 2010. We spoke about issues concerning our country today.

This is why I ask that you vote for him on August 7th.” — Jeff Mullen

◄ “I am supporting Ed Emery because he is willing to speak the truth, even when it may hurt his reputation or his chances of being elected. Ed does not say what people want to hear; he says what he believes and what people need to hear. On August 7, we have the opportunity to elect not a politician, but a statesman — a statesman who is willing to stand alone no matter how great the cost. Please join me in voting for Ed Emery.” — Cass County Treasurer Steve Cheslik

◄ “We are in real need of honest statesmen to represent us in Jefferson City — those who are not self-serving or looking to line their own pockets, but are looking out for our best interests.

He is honest and has the integrity and fortitude to fight for what needs to be done to put our state back on its constitutional foundation where it belongs.” — Jo Junkin

He will be a great state senator for our district.” — Jim and Dorothy Pirie
