Legislature kicks into full speed

Wilborn

What an honor it is to represent you as well as countless others in the 35th District of Kansas.

The legislature is moving at full speed at this point in the capitol. The Senate and the House are both working tremendously hard to better the lives of all Kansas constituents. Chairing the Judiciary committee, I have seen, chaired, and sponsored several bills that I can ensure you are working in the favor of the judicial system as well as the citizens of Kansas. I am also honored to serve on the Utilities committee and Financial Institutions and Insurance. It is my goal every day to work to better the lives of my constituents as well as all people across the state of Kansas. Thank you for your continued support in my efforts.
