State Representative Allen Icet, a Republican from Wildwood, has bounced back from his defeat in the primary race for Auditor.

Icet has accepted the position of chairman of the Missouri Club for Growth. Icet, the House Budget Committee chairman, says the non-profit, fiscally conservative organization is a perfect fit for him.

“Missouri Club for Growth, just like their national organization, the sister organization, they get involved in fiscal issues; taxes, regulations, free market,” Icet tells the Missourinet. “So that fit quite well with my particular philosophy and obviously fit quite well having served as chairman of the House Budget Committee for the past five years.”

Icet will serve out his term as state representative and says he will not participate in the political side of the Missouri

Icet lost the Republican nomination for Auditor to Tom Schweich.
