Chase Crawford is a 3rd-generation auctioneer. Raised in St. Clair County, he now serves as a Commissioner for Hickory County, Missouri.
Working alongside his father and brother for Crawford Auction Service has given Chase a unique perspective on life. Working in towns from Hermitage to Warsaw, from Osceola to Eldorado Springs, and with all the farmers and families and folks in between, Chase has seen first hand how government regulations and high taxes can hurt our way of life.
If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace. -Thomas Paine
Born to Sam and Tammy (nee Campbell) Crawford, Chase was brought home to their farm in Wheatland, MO. Sam worked as a self-employed auctioneer, and Tammy was starting her career as an elementary teacher. Later, Mrs. Crawford became the St. Clair County Executive Director.
A Missouri State University graduate, Chase first worked in radio, before becoming a school teacher. Now he works full time at Crawford Auction Service alongside his father and brother.
As an auctioneer, Crawford volunteers at benefit auctions to help families and communities raise the money they need for charitable causes.
I believe that every human mind feels pleasure in doing good to another. -Thomas Jefferson
Serving as Hickory County Commissioner, Crawford works to improve the condition of our county, and to get the resources we need to make our area a better place to live, work, start a business and raise a family.
Chase Crawford is now working to take that same commitment to families and responsible government to Jefferson City. As the Representative for the 125th House District serving Benton, Cedar, Hickory and St. Clair Counties, he’ll be the voice we can trust in Jefferson City to fight for us.
