Charles Brashers

City Council
Title: Council Member, Ward IV
Phone: 417-840-2604

Charles Brashers has lived in Republic most of his life. He attended Republic Schools from the second grade to high school graduation. Following high school, he attended and graduated from SMS (now MSU) with a BS in Education. He spent the next two years in the U.S. Navy, stationed in San Diego with a deployment to Vietnam. Upon returning from Vietnam, he accepted a teaching position with the Republic School System and earned his MS in Education in 1971. He will this year complete his 48th year with the school system in either a full time or part time position.

He has seen Republic grow from around 1,500 during his teenage years to its current size of approximately 14,000. He has served four terms on city council.

One of his main concerns is the lack of jobs available in Republic. He feels that one of Councils' main objectives should be to foster, using all means available, positive economic growth in the city. He welcomes your questions or comments.
