Calzone, Chairman Email:
ron (at) mo-cpr.org
Mr. Calzone is the founding president and CEO of CZ
Engineering, Inc., a manufacturing company in business for almost
30 years. He also owns and operates a working cattle and horse
ranch in Maries County.
Mr. Danforth owns a number of properties in the St. Louis area. One such property on Forsyth Ave. was targeted by a private developer. Along with two of his neighbors, he fought eminent domain all the way to the Missouri Supreme Court, where they were victorious in 2007. Unfortunately, the Court's decision has little application to other situations, so Mr. Danforth is resolved to help restore constitutional private property rights through the MO-CPR amendment.

all constitutional government is intended to promote the general
welfare of the people; that all persons have a natural right
to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and the enjoyment
of the gains of their own industry; that all persons are created
equal and are entitled to equal rights and opportunity under the
law; that to give security to these things is the principal
office of government, and that when government does not confer
this security, it fails in its chief design.”
