 Portrait of Zack Brown

Zack Brown

Regional Advocacy Coordinator, Western Missouri

A graduate of the University of Missouri - Kansas City. After graduating in 2010, began working as a Staff Assistant for Senator Kit Bond. After Senator Bond's retirement, I was hired as a Field Representative for incoming Senator Roy Blunt. During the campaign season leading up to the November 2012 election, I worked as the Regional Political Director for gubernatorial candidate Dave Spence. After the election, I was given the opportunity to work as a Field Representative for Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler. I currently reside in Greenwood, MO with my wife, Megan, daughter, Sadie, and son, Levi. Huge fan of the Royals and Chiefs, and hope both squads can make a run to the playoffs!
