Rick Brattin serves as the State Senator for Missouri’s 31st District. Prior to his election to the Missouri Senate, he had served as Auditor for Cass County and served four terms in the Missouri House of Representatives, where he built a strong reputation as a proven conservative willing to stand up and fight for Missouri values. He has prioritized defending the Constitution and our God-given rights, including religious liberty. He was a co-founder of the House Conservative Caucus, was a member of the Senate Conservative Caucus, and has consistently worked hard on behalf of commonsense reforms to lower the tax burden, eliminate waste in the budget, and get government out of the way of Missouri’s families and small businesses. Rick believes strongly in the value of public service and served in the United States Marine Corps as a non-commissioned officer for six years. Rick grew up in Greenwood and graduated from Lee’s Summit High School. He lives in Harrisonville with his wife and five children, and he operates a small construction company and his family farm. Faith is at the core of the Brattin family, and they are faithful, active members of Abundant Life.
