Carnahan finds hope in stimulus package

U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-Missouri, was in Festus on Monday to gain public support for the stimulus package proposed by President Barack Obama. The stimulus bill passed in the House last month and the Senate passed their version this week. Negotiations continue on a compromise between the two bills. Carnahan got plenty of support from a number of local leaders and state representatives, including Rep. Jeff Roorda, D-Barnhart, Rep. Ron Casey, D-Crystal City, County Executive Chuck Banks and Festus Mayor Earl Cook during a standing room only crowd at Festus City Hall.
