James Moody

Former Commissioner of Administration
Former State Budget Director

The report was produced by one of the state’s leading budget authorities, James R. Moody.

Moody has developed quite a following across the state, a following that crosses political lines and the rosters of special-interest groups. Last year his in-depth analysis of the crisis arising from the growing gap between spending and revenue was widely circulated. Gov. Bob Holden sent copies of Moody’s videotape presentation on the state budget to state agencies.

For the record, Moody currently runs a Jefferson City government-relations and consulting firm. He knows the financial details of state government like a jeweler knows the insides of a watch. He has been the state’s commissioner of administration and has served as the state’s budget director. He has been a top official with three agencies that rely on state funding.

So when Moody describes the need for machete-wielding policymakers in Jefferson City in his latest report, “Missouri’s Budget Problem: Causes and Possible Solutions,” he is relying on years of experience and is to be taken seriously.

“It is hard to walk the Capitol halls with Jim Moody without a staffer, lobbyist, or elected official stopping Jim to ask budget or revenue questions.  Jim Moody is the go-to guy on state budget issues.”
