On September 20, Gov. Eric Greitens appointed Representative Paul Fitzwater as a member of the Board of Probation and Parole.

Representative Fitzwater served in the Missouri House of Representatives, representing Washington, Wayne, Reynolds, and Iron counties, since 2010. While a member of the House, he served as the Chairman of the Corrections and Public Institution Committee, which oversees issues relating to adult and juvenile penal and correctional problems, and the administration of correctional institutions.

Representative Fitzwater holds a bachelor’s degree in education from Tarkio College and is a retired teacher and track and field coach from Potosi R-3 Schools.

“We are excited to have Paul join the Board of Probation and Parole, and for the experience he brings as Chairman of the Corrections and Public Institution Committee. While he will be missed in the legislature, I know he will serve our state with great integrity,” said Governor Greitens.
