Munzlinger Pledges To Keep Fighting for Northeast Missouri
Representative Brian Munzlinger, R-1, was among the first to file for candidacy for the State Representative election in November.
Munzlinger commented, “I am proud to represent my friends, neighbors, and fellow citizens of Northeast Missouri in Jefferson City as their State Representative.” Filing opened at 8:00 a.m. Tuesday, February 24th, and will remain open until 5:00 p.m. March 30th.
“I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to continue fighting for the people in the First District and throughout Missouri,” Munzlinger remarked. “I am thankful that many of my constituents have been encouraging me to run for re-election, and I feel like I have just begun to make a difference here.”
“When the tornado hit last year, I grabbed my chainsaw and worked to help clear debris, and worked with emergency management teams to see that immediate needs were met,” recalls Munzlinger. “I am so proud to work for the people of this region and how they come together to help one another.”
Brian Munzlinger feels that working on bills to help make Missouri a better place to live and work are very important, but remarks “The most important part of my job are the phone calls from constituents who are having trouble with our state bureaucracy, and I can help them!”
Representative Munzlinger has been focused on many bipartisan issues since the beginning of his term in 2003, including transportation projects, “Right to Carry,” value-added agriculture, rural economic development, health care for senior citizens, and workers comp reform and tort reform to help keep and bring more jobs to Northeast Missouri. “I feel that Brian is doing a great job of representing the interests of the people of Northeast Missouri,” says Aaron Schmitz, Lewis County Farm Bureau President.
Brian Munzlinger is a freshman legislator and farms in Lewis County. His wife is employed at Canton R-V School. They have a son, Clint, who attends the University of Missouri at Columbia, and a daughter, Lea, who attends Canton R-V School. Brian is also helped on the farm by his father, Elmer Munzlinger. Brian is still active in many local organizations.
