Brandon WhippleWichita resident, Brandon Whipple, officially announced today that he is running for the Kansas House of Representatives in District 96. Whipple has been deeply involved in the community, working with at-risk students from the Wichita Public Schools. He received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Wichita State University.

Whipple’s experience working with students and teachers gives him a unique perspective on the Kansas budget. “Our state’s founding fathers wrote the Kansas constitution with the intent to make public education our state’s top priority,” said Whipple. “Even in times of crisis, our legislature must support education.”

Whipple knocked on more than 200 doors, collecting enough signatures to be placed on the ballot. “To be on the ballot you either need public support or you pay a fee to the election commission. Our campaign is about the community and I chose to enter this election with the support of my neighbors.” said Whipple.
