KANSAS CITY POLITICO TO WATCH 2014: MISSOURI HOUSE REP. JOHN RIZZO!!!
The coming year should mark the continued upward trajectory of one of Kansas City's best elected officials in the urban core.
We've been a fan of Rep. John Rizzo for quite some time but this year he looks to earn even more support.
- Rep. Rizzo's district has evolved . . . He's now representing (the 19th District) as far East as Sugar Creek. These new lines offer an opportunity for the young elected official to broaden the spectrum of legislation that he will handle and maybe expand his focus to include statewide issues that also impact KC Proper.
- Moving Forward Past Controversy - Last year Rep. Rizzo answered a lot of questions about an election that's now years in the past. The case is finished, a new election is on the horizon and in the meantime he never let it distract him from his work that included quite a bit of public safety and economic incentive advocacy.
- Minority Whip And Missouri Democrat Insider Status - Nobody can argue that Rep. John Rizzo has been one of the most successful Kansas City Democratic Legislators in Jeff City. He has a slew of public safety bills to his credit and more in the works along with important connections to top statewide Democratic movers and shakers that should help his standing (and that of his constituents) overall.
For these reasons and many more (including a new home renovation project in Northeast) KANSAS CITY REP. JOHN RIZZO is worth watching this year amid what should be an exciting General Assembly Session in Missouri.
