State Representative Nate Walker

State Representative Nate Walker of Kirksville, who is running for the 18th District State Senate seat, was in Shelbina on Thursday and talked about many things, including his roots in Shelby and Macon Counties. He has many friends and family in the Shelby and Macon county area.
   Walker recalled helping support his uncle, Judge Ronald Belt, as he got elected. He said his uncle mentored him through much of his life. “I had the opportunity when I was a little boy of hanging out with him for a week when he was in the legislature. That may have been where I got the bug for politics,” he said.
   Walker said he feels running for senate is a natural next step for him at this point. He is currently representing part of the area.
   “I always say if a community has a good public school, a good newspaper, a couple banks and grocery store, that’s good. Other businesses will probably come along,” he explained.
