TOPEKA – Rep. Nile Dillmore, D-Wichita, announced today that he has filed with the Kansas Secretary of State for re-election in the Kansas House of Representatives. Dillmore has represented the 92nd District for five terms and was first elected in 2000.
“It has been an honor to represent the 92nd House District,” Dillmore said. I look forward to continuing my service to Wichita and the State of Kansas.”
Throughout his time in the Legislature, Dillmore has worked to crack down on illegal immigration by introducing legislation to prohibit Kansas businesses from contracting with firms that have violated illegal alien employment laws. In 2008, Dillmore successfully added a provision to the 2008 budget bill that required a comprehensive audit of illegal immigration as it pertains to Kansas communities.

In the Wichita community, he has served as a member of the SRS Advisory Board of Alcohol and Drug Abuse, the Sedgwick County Community Corrections Advisory Board and the Kansas Task Force on Uninsured Motorists.
