David Spence Visits Worth County

Dave Spence, Republican candidate for Governor, made a stop in Worth County on Monday, June 4. Spence met with local economic developer and business owner of Missouri Steel and Hose, Tammy Ueligger. She started her new business in May 2011. Spence spent the afternoon sharing his vision on how to get Missouri growing again and how to create an environment for job creators to thrive in our state. Missouri Steel and Hose sells ag repair parts and does special orders for tractor or combine parts, through a number of different vendors. Spence not only spoke to locals about his message and his jobs plan, but he also shared his time with the media answering their questions. Spence has taken his campaign to more than 100 Counties to hear what Missourians have to say about getting the state's economy back on track.

Spence, 54, recently stepped down as the President of Alpha Packaging after nearly 27 years at the helm. Spence secured a loan to buy Alpha in 1985 at the age of 26. At the time, the business had about 15 employees and $350,000 in annual sales. Dave led Alpha’s expansion to over 800 employees and almost $200 million in revenue.  Spence has also served as the Chairman of Legacy Pharmaceutical Packaging, a Missouri-based company. While quality manufacturing jobs were evaporating across the country, Spence says he has found the formula to break that trend and help provide a good living for hundreds of Missourians.
