Bio:

Clint Zweifel was elected in November 2008, becoming the youngest Missouri State Treasurer elected in more than 100 years. Since his first day in office, Clint has focused on job creation and the economy, helping more families save for college and running an efficient and accountable office that stretches tax dollars further.

Within weeks of taking office, Clint introduced Invest in Missouri, an economic development and jobs package that streamlined the Missouri Linked Deposit Program, eliminating red tape and allowing Clint to help more small businesses and farms. The plan also eliminated the artificial cap on what Clint could earn on state deposits, allowing Clint to earn a fair rate of return for taxpayers for the first time in more than 50 years.

As State Treasurer, Clint serves as the chief financial officer of the state, safely and securely managing $23 billion in annual state revenues. At the same time Missouri families are having to tighten their belts and make do with less, Clint has cut spending and is getting more done with fewer resources and running an office that works smarter and more efficiently.

Under Clint’ s leadership, Missouri’ s 529 college savings plan, called MOST, has become one of the top 5 college savings plans in the nation. More families are saving more money for college than ever before through MOST, allowing more Missouri families to achieve the dream of higher education.

Clint and his Unclaimed Property team are returning more money to more Missourians than ever before. By streamlining the process, it now takes half the time it took when Clint took office to get your money back to you. More than $80 million has been returned to approximately 250,000 individuals.

Clint is a lifelong Missourian, born and raised in Florissant. His dad was a union carpenter and his mom was a hairdresser. Charlie and Brenda Zweifel taught Clint the value of hard work and making investments in people – from coaching youth sports to volunteering for church and community.

Clint became the first person in his family to attend college. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

In 2002, Clint ran for the Missouri House of Representatives. Despite facing an incumbent, Clint won by 67 votes out of more than 13,000 cast. Clint served 6 years in the Missouri House before running for State Treasurer in 2008.

Clint and his wife Janice have been married for 14 years and are parents to two wonderful daughters, Selma and Ellie. Janice, a behavior analyst, works with children and adults with special needs. The Zweifel family currently resides in Columbia.
