MEET NICK GILL
A Concerned Kansan
I first came to Kansas at the age of 7, when my parents moved to the town of Iola, KS in the Southeast corner of the state. When we drove into town, a man, I don't know who, waved to us as we drove by. I was confused at the time, because we didn't know a soul in town, but I came to experience that this was generally the way that everyday Kansans are: friendly, giving, neighborly.
My Dad worked as a manager for Haldex Brake Products in town until it moved production to Monterrey, Mexico. My Mom taught 3rd grade, her first class included my younger brother. He's currently working in communications for the Cattlemen's association. As for myself, after graduating co-valedictorian in my class, I attended the University of Kansas where I earned a degree in Biochemistry, and, more importantly, met my wife, Jacki. Together, we have two younger children who will be taking advantage of the Olathe public school system.
I decided to run for office because I don't think Kansas government is working well for the people of Kansas, and that I can better represent the people of HD 121. The core of my philosophy is that Kansas government needs to Work for Working Kansans: a funded educational system that prepares our kids for global competition; a responsible and transparent budget; lowering sales taxes on food everyone needs; and actively looking at issues like medical care that eat more of our paychecks every year - the real meat and potatoes issues that people deal with in your home and mine.
I hope to meet with you in person as I visit houses in HD 121. Please know that I personally want your trust as a neighbor and your Vote on November 6th.
