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
