An Army veteran and pastor of Sovereign Grace Baptist Church in Branson has announced he is running for the Missouri House of Representatives in the 156th district.
Brian Seitz is running for the seat currently held by Rep. Jeff Justus, who is term-limited.
“I want to thank Rep. Justus for his years of service to our district and congratulate him on a job well done,” Seitz said in a statement. “We are blessed to have had strong Republican leadership representing our county, and I pledge to continue this trend. Promoting the conservative values of our community will be my chief priority as the next state representative.”
Seitz is a graduate of Missouri State with a degree in Communications and Public Relations. In addition to his duties as pastor, he is also the local business manager for Splash Car Wash. He was publisher/editor of the Music County News for 14 years.
Seitz stated in a press release his legislative priorities are “workforce development, keeping Missouri pro-life, enhancing educational opportunities for all students, defending religious liberty, and upholding the right to bear arms.”
“Our freedoms are under attack in this country,” Seitz said in a statement. “I believe the Bill of Rights is not just a suggestion of the Founding Fathers—it’s an inheritance for all Americans. We must fight to protect what is rightfully ours. I will do this every single day that I serve as state representative.”
