Presiding Commissioner Sam Bushman

I was born and raised in Cole County and attended Jefferson City Public Schools, Lincoln University for my undergraduate degree, and the University of Missouri at Columbia for graduate school.

I have been a local businessman for over 40 years, and my wife Linda and I own Samuel’s Tuxedo and Gifts. We’ve been dressing up Cole County for 3 generations and we’ve made many good friends throughout the county.

I am active in the Lions Club, Knights of Columbus, and Sons of the American Revolution. I have held National offices with the Navy League of the United States; and currently serve on the Board of Directors of Capital Regional Medical Center, and the Missouri National Guard’s Employers in Support of the Guard and Reserve Program.

I have also served on the Commissioning Committees of the U.S.S. Missouri BB-63 (1986), U.S.S. Jefferson City SSN-759 (1992), U.S.S. Harry S. Truman CV-75 (1998), and U.S.S. Missouri SSN-780 (2010).

I look forward to serving Cole County as Presiding Commissioner, and feel free to contact me anytime at 573-634-9113, or just stop by the store.
