Rep. David Sater, a Republican, filed on Tuesday for the Missouri's 29th District Senate seat. Sater is seeking the seat that will be vacated by Jack Goodman at the end of this year due to term limits.
"I am running for the Missouri State Senate because as a father, husband, common sense conservative Christian and small business owner for 30 years, I can take those values to the Missouri State Senate and help our state become a leader instead of a follower," said Sater. "I look forward to a vigorous campaign to discuss the issues facing the citizens of
southwest Missouri. This is a year where our voice will be heard."
Sater owned and operated Sater Pharmacy in Cassville with his wife, Sharon, for 30 years before being elected to the Missouri House of Representatives in 2004.
Sater is also a member and founder of the Pregnancy Care Center in Aurora and a member of the Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Missouri Pharmaceutical Association. He has served as president of the American Cancer Society and participated in medical mission trips to Honduras.
Sater is a member of the First Baptist Church in Cassville where he helps with the music ministry.
After announcing his intention to run for the Missouri Senate seat last year, Sater has been campaigning throughout the district, which includes Barry County and portions of Stone and Lawrence counties.
Sater for Senate is the committee formed to support Sater's election campaign. Lois Lowe serves as treasurer of that group.
