A note from Senator Ray Merrick
It has been my distinct honor to serve you in the legislature these past 12 years. During my 11 years of service in the Kansas House, and now in the Kansas Senate, I have fought every day for a pro-business, fiscally responsible government. I have been an advocate for policies which are family friendly and reinforce our great schools.
I am proud of what we have been able to accomplish together. And by continuing to work together, I believe our community and our state will only get better. Building a better tomorrow for the families and businesses of Johnson County will always be my top priority.
A Trusted Advocate
More about Ray Merrick
As your State Representative and your State Senator, you have entrusted me with your greatest community concerns. I take that trust to heart and believe my number one priority in the Kansas Legislature is to advocate your views and concerns on the floor in Topeka.
Public Safety Advocate
For years I joined my Republican colleagues in the House to fight for tougher restrictions on sexual predators. I will continue to be an advocate for the safety of our communities and be as tough as we can on those who would prey on our children.
I have been committed to protecting Blue Valley and Olathe school districts and believe creating opportunities in our children’s schools is an investment in our future and a testimony of our hard work and dedication. As we work to reform our education finance model with more accountability and better results, I know my first responsibility is to our students in these districts.
Taxpayer & Business Advocate
I have also been committed to advocating responsible government and protecting our tax dollars. I will continue to stand up for an elimination of the double taxes we face in Kansas such as the inheritance tax, the franchise tax, and state income tax on our federal income tax burden. I am dedicated to strengthening the business environment in Kansas and bringing critical economic development to our state.
