Welcome to my website!

Dear Friend,

Thank you for visiting my website. I share your interest in solid conservative principles and the good they can do for our nation, our culture and our families.

As 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 own and operate a small business in Wichita.

I believe there is something inherently good in the fundamental principles of lower taxes, smaller government and economic freedom. These ideas are important to our state and nation as we work to grow our economy, strengthen liberty, run our businesses and raise our families.

As a husband and father, I realize that what we do today will be the legacy for our children, their families and generations to come. It is our duty to stand strong for the things we believe in as we chart the course for the future.

I am honored and humbled at the opportunity to be your Republican National Committeeman and will work to strengthen the party’s support of these ideas and concepts as we work to successfully elect Republicans up and down the ballot here in Kansas and across the nation.

Mark Kahrs
