Pro-Vote Names Zweifel Outstanding Legislator

Missouri's Pro-Vote coalition has named Rep. Clint Zweifel the outstanding legislator of the year.

Zweifel, who represents Hazelwood and Florissant in St. Louis County, is running for the Democratic nomination for State Treasurer.

"Clint has helped lead Democratic policy strategy in Jefferson City on important issues like early childhood education, privacy rights and helping seniors cope with property taxes. During his three terms in Jefferson City, Clint has emerged as a leader on state finances where he serves as the ranking member on the Ways and Means Committee and the Special Committee on Tax Reform. Since being elected, Clint has received a 100% on Pro-Vote's annual Legislative Scorecard every year," reads the Pro-Vote release.

"Clint has been a true champion for hard-working Missouri families on the issues that matter to all of us," said Greg Shufeldt, Political Director for Missouri Progressive Vote Coalition. "We are proud to recognize the great work and accomplishments of Representative Zweifel."

Zweifel will be formally recognized at the annual Pro-Vote Awards Dinner this fall on September 27th in St. Louis
