Oklahoma State Senator - District 6
Oklahoma State Senator Josh Brecheen was elected to the State Senate in November 2010. He represents District 6, consisting of Atoka, Coal, Bryan, Johnston and Marshall Counties.
Prior to his election to the Oklahoma legislature, Josh served almost six years as a field representative for U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, M.D. As a field representative, Brecheen was one of Senator Coburn’s “boots on the ground,” working directly with constituents on issues, and evaluating government programs for waste, fraud and abuse. Josh owns a motivational speaking business, Brecheen Keynotes and Seminars. Since the inception of the business, Brecheen has provided inspirational presentations to over 600,000 people in more than 600 school systems, conferences and universities in many states. Presentations provided from 2004-2010, were provided free of charge to comply with U.S Senate Ethics rulings.
Josh is a two-time qualifier for the National Cutting Horse Association Eastern Championship Show, and spends his spare time raising and training Quarter Horses.
Josh is a graduate of Oklahoma State University, where he earned a dual degree in agricultural communications and animal science. Josh attended Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant until his election as State FFA President in 1998, which necessitated his move to Stillwater (to be near the Oklahoma State Career Technology headquarters). Josh also served the Oklahoma FFA Association as SE District Vice-President in 1997.
Josh, a committed Christian, is married to Kacie Ann Brecheen and has two small step children (Micah and Makayla). Additionally, the couple’s third child, Colt Justice was born on October 20, 2010. The family resides in Coal County.
