|Intro:||At an event to celebrate a renewable energy project Monday, the introduction of Gov. Jay Nixon lasted longer than his prepared remarks. Theo Keith has more from Jefferson City.|
Wrap: Gov. Jay Nixon spoke for just three minutes on renewable energy Monday at the Jefferson City Correctional Center's new renewable energy facility.
It took five minutes to introduce him.
There was Nixon's educational background.
|Description: "After earning both his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Missouri-Columbia, Nixon returned to De Soto."|
And where he goes to church.
|Description: "Governor Nixon and his wife Georganne Wheeler Nixon have two sons, Jeremiah and Willson. They belong to the First United Methodist Church in Jefferson City."|
After Nixon's speech and the ribbon-cutting ceremony, reporters had plenty of questions for the governor.
Description: "Governor, DNR told a number of its employees today that they weren't going to have jobs. Is there any connection between that announcement today and your announcements over the last couple of weeks?"
But none about the renewable energy facility.
