Topeka, KS – Senator Mary Pilcher-Cook (R-Shawnee) filed for re-election today for the 10th Senate District. Pilcher-Cook is one of the leading conservative voices in the Senate.
“It has been a distinct honor to represent the people of the 10th Senate District. While I am very proud of the progress we have made as a state, much work still needs to be done. The 2012 elections will be pivotal in establishing our state’s direction on several key issues, including improving how education is funded, reforming taxes to increase economic growth, eliminating excessive spending, and generally decreasing the size of government,” she said.
Pilcher-Cook, who has been a leader on a number of issues, including health care, public safety, state sovereignty, and defending the sanctity of life, said her overwhelming motivation to serve stems from her desire to ensure the life and liberty of Kansas citizens is protected.
“Liberty is foundational to every issue we tackle in Topeka, and state legislators should analyze policy decisions from that perspective. Unfortunately, too often liberty is surrendered, and as a result Kansans are penalized. I will remain diligent in working for limited government, and I am looking forward that in the next four years we will achieve great success in advancing the cause of liberty on behalf of our citizens.”
Mary Pilcher-Cook was originally elected to the Kansas House in 2000 and again in 2004. She won election to the Kansas Senate in 2008. She serves on the Judiciary, Natural Resources and Public Health & Welfare Committees, and is the Chairman of the Legislative Post Audit Committee.
The 10th Senate District currently composes all of Shawnee, Lake Quivira, and northeast Lenexa. Redistricting, which is not complete, may alter the boundaries of the district.
