There are going to be some tough decisions to be made in Topeka the next few years, and Gerrett Morris wants to be there to promote and protect the interests of the 69th District.
Gerrett Morris’ family has lived in Saline County for five generations. His ancestors were farmers, and his parents still operate a small farm just outside of Assaria. His father, now retired from the US Air Force, currently works in a factory. His mother owned her own retail business for several years and now works for the Postal Service.
After his father retired in 1989, the family moved just outside of Assaria, where Gerrett helped out around the farm, learning firsthand about responsibility and the value of hard work. He graduated from Southeast of Saline High School and Cloud County Community College with an Associates Degree in Horticulture.
Along with co-founding Ad Astra Books and Coffeehouse, he is the Landscape Supervisor at Rolling Hills Zoo, where he has been employed for 18 years, and serves nationally as a board member of the Association of Zoological Horticulture. He and his wife, Ann Marie, have two wonderful children.
