Wichita attorney and small business owner Mark Kahrs announced Friday that he will run in the Republican primary for the House seat in the new District 87 in east Wichita.
Kahrs said in a written statement that job creation and the economy are the biggest concerns of most Kansans.
“These are difficult times in our state and nation, and we need leaders who know how to get things done,” Kahrs’ statement said. “As a small business owner in Wichita, I know what it takes to create jobs.”
He said his first job in the Legislature would be ”to create a positive economic climate to promote job creation.”
