The first duty of a state representative in our American Republic is to be a voice for the will of the people.
Duell will be that voice.
One of his campaign goals is to be the most accessible candidate. He will stand with the People's Agenda if they honor him with their vote to be their next representative.
It is one's duty to stand by an oath to protect the Constitution if elected as State Representative.
We are blessed to live in a nation with a Constitution that protects our natural rights: Life, Liberty, and Property.
Duell promises to follow not only the words of Constitution, but the intent of the Founding Fathers who crafted it.
One of the most important duties of a legislator is not only to pass good laws, but to stop bad ones. Duell will fight tooth-and-nail against proposals to increase taxes or spending.
The recent "NO" votes on the lodging tax in the Tri-County area and on OTC at the Lake have clearly signaled to him that voters in our district don't want new taxes.
Duell serves as Ron Hicks chief of staff, where he is responsible for overseeing all operations necessary for the success of the office. From drafting agendas to answering emails, he does it all. Duell's experience proves that he is the candidate with the know-how needed to jump into the job and start making a difference for the district.
Duell is the only legislator assistant in the capitol who serves as the committee secretary for three committees in the House of Representatives: Homeland Security, Regulatory Oversight and Reform, and Capitol Security. His knowledge of the process will give him a pivotal advantage as he begins to advocate for the district in his first term.
As a principled advocate for the cause of liberty and Constitution, Duell would come into office with a strong understanding of the philosophy that made America great. His work with the RLC, including reinstating the Missouri chapter's charter and serving as the vice-chair, is proof that he will stand with the philosophy of the Founding Fathers if he is elected. Duell gets it: Freedom Works.
In November 2008, Duell was just six months shy of being old enough to vote, but he didn't let that stop him. In an act of defiance against the idea of being limited by his age, he went out and knocked doors for John McCain instead. He wasn't just going to stand by and do nothing. In the years since, he has exemplified this idea: There is always something we can do to support conservatism. One just has to look for opportunities and dive in head first!
As a regular guest on the Morning Show with Austin Petersen and John Marsh, occasional op-ed guest writer at the Libertarian Republic, and prolific online personality, Duell has never been afraid to speak his mind about the issues. Just this year he's used these platforms to challenge China for it's role in the COVID-19 pandemic and to defend the Lake of the Ozarks when the national media attempted to paint our region as fools for enjoying Memorial Day.
In the past, Duell served two years as a Republican committeeman. Local Republican committees are the foundational building blocks of the GOP. These humble grassroots organizations elect state and (by proxy) national level Republican committees. The RNC is a powerful org. When he was committeeman, Duell has worked tirelessly to support the conservative agenda to
Make America Great Again.
Like the majority of citizens in House District 124, Duell believes it is a fundamental truth that life is sacred at every stage of development. Protecting life, liberty, and property is the most legitimate duty of government. The issue of abortion is clearly a matter of protecting life.
The Republican Liberty Caucus of Missouri is a political action organization dedicated to promoting individual rights, limited government, and free enterprise within the Republican Party. Duell is proud to fight with the RLC to make Republicans... Republican again!
Alderman Maples is standing behind Duell because of his proven track record of standing for the cause of supporting law enforcement. Duell and Rep Hicks have fought tirelessly to get departments the resources they need to be successful in their law enforcement mission.
A former Presidential and US Senate Candidate, Austin Petersen has fought many uphill battles for the cause of liberty. The man pulls no punches. These days, he is encouraging important political dialogues on the air at KWOS. Austin supports Duell because he knows Missouri needs more legislators that value liberty.
Rep Lovasco is one of the most principled conservative members in the General Assembly. He and Duell have advocated together for the cause of Constitutional conservatism for years. Tony believes that Missouri needs conservatives like Duell who will stick to their values if elected.
Duell was proud to receive the support of this principled, thoughtful Tea Party conservative. Former Rep Lichtenegger was Duell's boss during his first year working in the capitol. She supports him because she has seen his work ethic and passion for public service firsthand.
