Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler proudly represents the good people of Missouri’s 4th Congressional District which is comprised of 24 counties in West-Central Missouri.
She grew up on a farm in Cass County, learning the value of hard work, family values, and a reliance on God. These values have guided her life as she attended and graduated from Archie High School, the University of Missouri, and the University of Central Missouri. They inspired her as she taught public school for 11 years in Lebanon and Belton, and as she joined her husband in a small business.
Congresswoman Hartzler began her public service in 1994 when she successfully ran for State Representative in the Missouri General Assembly, where she served for six years. She was elected to Congress in 2010 and serves on the House Armed Services and Agriculture Committees. She currently serves as Ranking Member of the Tactical Air and Land Subcommittee on the House Armed Services Committee and is the Chairwoman of the House Values Action Team.
She lives with her husband Lowell and their daughter, Tiffany, on a working farm near Harrisonville in Cass County.
