"We are grateful for your strong support of education, particularly your votes this year for a $176 million increase in K-12 funding and more local control for the parents, teachers, and school boards who know their children best.

In addition to keeping K-12 our state’s number one budget priority, your focus on accountability and improving educational outcomes is much appreciated. All Kansas kids deserve quality schools, and none should be trapped in underperforming ones.

With $5.9 billion in federal, state, and local funds now invested annually in Kansas K-12, your record demonstrates a deep commitment to both resources — and results — for Kansas kids. "

Welcome to my website!

Dear Friend,

A fourth generation Kansan, I grew up in Wichita and attended Wichita public schools. I earned my BA in Business Management from Wichita State University and my Juris Doctorate from Washburn University School of Law.

I believe the fundamental principles of lower taxes, smaller government and economic freedom will help grow our Kansas private sector economy. As a small business owner in Wichita, I know what it takes to create jobs. My first priority in the legislature will be to create a positive economic climate to promote job creation.

I believe in a citizen legislature and will work hard to be true to the conservative values that made Kansas a great state and Wichita a great place to raise a family. I am honored and humbled at the opportunity to serve you in Topeka as your Kansas State Representative.

I would appreciate your support.

Mark Kahrs
