WITH PREVALENCE OF COVID INFECTIONS IN METRO SEN. MIKE CIERPIOT CANCELS MEET & GREET EVENT

Missouri Senator Mike Cierpiot announced today that due to an abundance of caution and concern for supporters, including many veterans, he has cancelled his Candidate Meet & Greet Event that was scheduled Wednesday, July 27, at the VFW POST 5789 in Lee’s Summit.

Senator Cierpiot of Lee’s Summit is recognized as a major force in securing the designation of the Korean War Veterans Memorial in downtown Kansas City as the official Korean War Memorial for the state of Missouri.

Cierpiot said the Candidate Meet & Greet Event with more than 100 supporters expected just days before the primary election was important to him and his wife Connie, but they did not want to risk the health of any Missourians as COVID cases increase in the Kansas City metro area.

Cierpiot is seeking reelection to the 8th Senatorial District seat covering Eastern Jackson County.
