TOPEKA – Rep. Annie Kuether, D-Topeka, has filed for re-election to the Kansas House of Representatives. Kuether represents the 55th House District, covering downtown Topeka, Washburn University, The Kansas State Capitol, and the public library. She has been representing the 55th House District since 1997.
“I promise to put my constituents, our community and our state first, not a special interest or political party,” said Kuether.
Kuether is the Ranking Democratic Member on the House Energy and Utilities Committee. She also serves on the House Judiciary Committee, and a member on the Special Committee on Utilities. She is a legislative member of the Kansas Electric Transmission Authority (KETA). She has served as chair of the bipartisan Shawnee County Legislative Delegation three times and is a past president of the Women’s Legislative Network of the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL).
“Rep. Kuether is an outstanding Kansas legislator,” 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 Topeka will send her back to the Capitol to continue her excellent work.”
Kuether has lived in the District she represents for more than 3 decades. She has two grown children, Rebecca and Ted.
The 2012 election will take place on Nov. 6, 2012.
