Default Who to contact about black mold, mice, & roaches in Missouri prison?

Who would someone contact besides the governor that would look into black mold, mice, and roaches bigger than a finger inside a Missouri prison?

In all honesty, you've probably just described the majority of prisons in the U.S.

Your first point of contact should always be the Warden. It isn't a good idea to alienate and / or piss off the Warden by doing an end run, especially if you have a loved one there.

That being said, the fist thing that came to mind is for you to contact your legislator(s).

I'm with Patchouli on this... they are in prison and not occupying a Ritz Carlton.
As bad as I personally believe this is and the inmates are still human beings, those facilities are not kept up to a "normal" or better "basic" standard.
But...maybe you should stay out of it or go with Patchouli's advice on this.
Follow your heart but take your brain with you...

Like others said, your first step should be the Warden. If that does not work, then the next step is the Governor and anyone in the state legislator and state senate.
