Brian Clausen Files as State Representative Candidate in Kansas House District 28
Topeka, Kans. — Overland Park resident Brian Clausen filed by petition to be placed on the ballot for Kansas House of Representatives, 28th District. Clausen, a Democrat, is looking to turn the grassroots efforts of his campaign into enough votes to flip the District and elect a Democrat for the first time in the 28th’s history.
“We’ve seen a lot of positive response so far,” said Clausen, “This is the first time a Democrat has run in this district in six years, so people are excited to finally have a choice this time around.”
Brian grew up in Overland Park, and currently works for VML near downtown Kansas City. Over the last few years, Brian grew continually frustrated with what he perceives is the lack of equality, common sense, and transparency in the Kansas government.
“I wanted to run because I was tired of feeling powerless against the corruptive things that were happening in Kansas government.”
Clausen noted the use of Kansas as a “tax-break-for-the-rich” guinea pig, which has decimated revenues for public education, healthcare, and infrastructure.
“I just want to help make Kansas government trustworthy again. I think people are tired of the corporate influence, the bigotry, and the secrecy in Kansas politics. I want everyone to have equal rights and equal protection under the law no matter who they are.”
