I've had the pleasure of working with Scott and his team for the past 7 years during my tenure with two different non-profit organizations. When I joined Operation Food Search in 2017, I knew that I needed their tactical knowledge and legislative expertise to help me build a successful policy platform for our organization. His nuanced understanding of Missouri's ever-changing political climate has been invaluable. Time and time again I've watched Scott develop content expertise on a wide range of issues, from infant mortality to child hunger, his passion and commitment to representing vulnerable populations is unsurpassed.

I have worked with Mr. Penman for several years on an extremely difficult issue, improving the quality of 9-1-1 service across the state. Every year one group or another said the bill would never pass. Scott's dedication to this essential public safety issue and his ability to work with bill sponsors and other legislators was instrumental in getting the bill passed.
