REP. DRAZKOWSKI TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR EXCELLENCE BY THE AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE UNION FOUNDATION AT AWARD CEREMONY TONIGHT 9/11/2019
[ST. PAUL, MN, September 11, 2011] The American Conservative Union Foundation will be honoring recipients of the highest scores on its 2019 scorecard at an award ceremony tonight at 8 pm with a reception to follow. The event will be held at the Earle Brown Heritage Center in Brooklyn Park.
Rep. Steve Drazkowski is being honored with scoring a 97% on their scorecard, the highest score of any Minnesota House member in 2019. He holds a 92% lifetime average from ACUF.
Rep. Drazkowski said, “I am proud to be recognized by a national organization like ACUF for my voting record. I am doubly proud that they selected one of the amendments I offered, an amendment on the Public Safety Bill to solidify the “stand your ground” provisions in Minnesota Law last session to figure into their scores. Although we did not prevail, we won’t give up until we give Minnesotans the security that they will not be prosecuted for defending themselves and their loved ones.”
The Conservative Political Action Conference will be hosting an event earlier in the day, from 4-8 before the award ceremony to honor the heroism of 9/11 first responders and citizens around the country.
The NHRC is led by Rep. Steve Drazkowski (Republican-Mazeppa). It includes Rep. Cal Bahr (Republican-East Bethel), Rep. Tim Miller (Republican-Prinsburg), and Rep. Jeremy Munson (Republican-Lake Crystal).
