She was first elected to the Kansas House of Representatives in 2010 and serves on the Aging and Long Term Care Committee, the Federal and State Affairs Committee and the Committee on Taxation.
“I have been honored to serve Wyandotte County in the Kansas House of Representatives, but there is more to do,” said Wolfe Moore. “As a member of the House Taxation Committee, I have been very focused on helping local communities – especially Wyandotte County - lower the property tax burden. I have also supported proposals to restore some of the devastating cuts that have been made to local schools in recent years.”
“Kathy’s priorities in the Kansas Legislature reflect the priorities of Kansas families,” said House Democratic Leader Paul Davis, Lawrence. “She has advocated for increased public education funding, lower property taxes, and job creation for Kansas families. I hope the people of Wyandotte County will send her back to Topeka to continue her excellent work.”
