Senator Molly Baumgardner has served in the Kansas Senate since 2014 and serves as the Chair of the Senate Education Committee. For seven years, Molly worked as a K–12 teacher. She currently serves on the advisory boards of two USD vocational technology programs (AV Communications Pathway). She also spent 10 years working at Johnson County Community College as a faculty member and program supervisor before taking the position of Communications Coordinator in the Marketing and Strategic Communications Division.

Michelle Dombrosky is a dependable local leader who has served on the State Board of Education for the past four years. Bringing a discerning mind and firm belief in freedom of the individual, she consistently voted to protect individual, unalienable liberty and advocated for full support of the present unalienable rights of parents. Michelle is currently running for re-election to the State School Board.

Jim has a Georgetown University Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service and a Law Degree from the University of Kansas School of Law. He started his career teaching English in Mississippi’s Middle and High Schools before moving to Washington, D.C. Jim is the owner of the Overland Park-based merchant banking company Royal Blue Capital, which provides guidance to corporate clients on a variety of strategic deals. In his short time on the board, Jim has already faced attacks from the left for being “transphobic”.


Tom Reddin holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business and a Masters degree in Criminal Justice. He first ran for School Board because he wanted to give back to his community. He is passionate about serving his community; educating our children and providing leadership. He served for five (5) years in the U.S. Army as a Military Policeman and later had a very fulfilling career at the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, where he retired as a Patrol Watch Commander. Part of being a great leader is being responsive to the concerns of those you represent and Tom takes great pride in representing his constituents and taking care of their needs.
