Vivek Malek Sworn In As Missouri State Treasurer
JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Indian American Vivek Malek on January 24 became Missouri’s first non-white state officeholder.
The 45-year-old attorney was sworn in as State Treasurer surrounded by family and at least 200 supporters.
“As your state treasurer, I’ll stand up for Missourians to ensure you’re able to realize your God-given potential,” he said.
Republican Gov. Mike Parson had appointed Malek to replace Scott Fitzpatrick, who was elected state auditor last year.
