Republican Bob Gough from Lee's Summit, files to run for Congressional District 6

April 13, 2012

Bob Gough


Tax fighter advocate Bob Gough of Lee's Summit has filed for Congress in the newly created Sixth District, which includes Southeast Lee's Summit, portions of Eastern Jackson County, and portions of Kansas City North of the Missouri River. The District includes large portions of Missouri North to Iowa and East to central Missouri.

Bob Gough founded the Jackson County Taxpayer Association in 2000 and has been an advocate for taxpayers for many years. He joined with other tax payer advocates to defeat a recent ballot measure for an eighteen percent increase in the Lee's Summit school tax.

Bob Gough is member of several community organizations including the Kansas City Pachyderm Club, President of the Missouri State Federation of Pachyderm Clubs, Lee's Summit Masonic Lodge, American Legion, Elks Lodge, Silver Strings Dulcimer Players and the Lee's Summit Republican Club.

Bob Gough served his country in the US Army in an infantry training Brigade.  He has a BS degree in Mathematics and was a high school mathematics teacher. Bob and his wife Helen have been married for thirty years.Together they have three children and three grandchildren.

Gough's campaign will focus on the fiscal damage caused by last year's increase of the federal debt by $4 trillion.  "I am proud to be part of the Tea Party movement. At the urging of Obama,  Congress voted to increase our national debt by $2.4 trillion and to authorize Obama to increase it by an additional $1.6 trillion. Our Sixth District Congressman voted for Obama's huge debt increase bill.

"Our elected officials are using the politics of fear and division to create ruinous debt that must be repaid by our children and grand-children. Four members of Missouri's Republican congressional delegation voted for this huge debt increase.  Vicky Hartzler and Todd Akin voted against the Obama debt limit increase. I am proud to stand with them on this important issue."
