Three term Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler visited Tiger John Cleek’s Aaron’s store in Columbia on April 1. Cong. Hartzler and her husband Lowell own 4 farm implement stores in Missouri so she knows the joys and struggles of small business. Rep. Hartzler has been a supporter for RTO throughout her tenure co-sponsoring industry supported legislation. She spent 45 minutes in the store interacting with customers and associates and welcomed by all. “She is a very genuine, caring person wanting to learn more about her constituents. Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler is a great example of what is right in our government,” reflects Cleek. Tiger John Cleek, one of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award winners, has spent a quarter century involved in APRO especially legislative advocacy. The recent Rep. Hartzler store visit represents this year’s initiative to invite members of Congress to their individual stores to meet with employees and customers.
