Susan has served in the Legislature since 1991 and was elected to the Senate in 2001. She is also the first female Senate President, first elected to the position in 2012.
Susan started her professional career as a public-school teacher. That’s how she met her husband Tom who was also a teacher. The two started a small “fixer upper” business where they bought real estate, remolded it and then leased it out. When the Kansas legislature passed a bill that tripled commercial property taxes and almost doubled residential property taxes, Susan set out to find a candidate to run for her local house seat that was both pro-life and fiscally conservative. After several people told her no, she ran for and won the seat herself – launching an unexpected political career that would take her to top leadership positions in both chambers of the state legislature.
Lunch will be a Chicken Minestrone Soup with a Greek Salad.
