Missouri Century Foundation Honors Rep. Wiemann with Missouri Centurion Award
ST. LOUIS – The Missouri Century Foundation honored State Rep. John Wiemann (R-103) with the foundation’s Missouri Centurion Award.
“Rep. John Wiemann is a leader to watch in the Missouri legislature. He worked tirelessly throughout this year’s session to protect taxpayers by advocating for government union reform. We look forward to working with him to educate the public and the members of the state legislature on the need to reform government unions,” said Gregg Keller, chairman of Missouri Century Foundation.
The Missouri Centurion Award honors a legislator or legislators who have proven their commitment to advancing forward-looking policies that help ensure the long-term health of Missouri’s economy for all Missourians and the generations to come.
Rep. Wiemann is the 2016 recipient of the foundation’s legislator of the year award. Wiemann championed government union reform giving Missouri workers a greater voice in who represents their interests. His legislation also included important transparency measures geared to giving Missouri taxpayers greater information about union activities.
The Missouri Century Foundation advocates for strong free market principles to build a strong foundation to improve the livelihoods of Missourians, while holding state leaders accountable for their actions. The foundation is focused on four main issues: stopping ObamaCare expansion in Missouri, protecting Missourians’ First Amendment rights to assemble and associate, greater transparency in Missouri’s public colleges and universities, and reforming government unions for workers.
