InfoCongressman Sam Graves is a life long resident of Missouri's 6th Congressional District. As a small businessman and a sixth-generation, full-time, family farmer, Sam has spent his life working to make Missouri a better place to live, work, and raise a family.

In Congress, Sam serves on the Agriculture, Small Business, and Transportation Committees where he continues the fight for the most significant interests of the Sixth District. Sam also is a member of House Leadership as Deputy Whip and is Chairman of the Small Business Subcommittee on Rural Enterprises, Agriculture, and Technology.

Congressman Graves was born in Tarkio, Missouri, November 7, 1963. He graduated from Tarkio High School in 1982 and attended college at the University of Missouri-Columbia where he received his degree in Agronomy from the School of Agriculture.

While attending the University, Sam met his wife, Lesley. Upon graduation, Lesley and Sam married and moved back to Tarkio. Lesley teaches kindergarten at Tarkio Elementary. They have three children, Megan (13), Trey (9), and Emily (6). Sam is an active member of his community and enjoys flying his 1946 Piper Cub airplane for fun.

In 1992, Sam won his first race for State Representative. In 1994, Sam was elected as State Senator for the 12th Senatorial District and subsequently re-elected in 1998. Sam's leadership has not only been recognized by his constituents, but from organizations like the Missouri Chamber of Commerce, the Small Business Development Corporation, and the Missouri State Medical Association.

As a father, farmer, businessman, and former State legislator, Sam knows first hand the values, hopes, and beliefs of the hard-working families of the Sixth District and will continue to work tirelessly for them in the United States House of Representatives. As your Congressman, Sam is dedicated to our national security as well as your personal financial security. Sam will continue to fight to fully fund our military, lower taxes, stabilize Social Security for our seniors, and provide more local control of funding for our schools.
