Tim Clothier for Kansas House

Thank you for visiting my campaign website! Topeka is growing and changing and so must our leadership. We need leaders who value education, understand what really grows business and have the courage to stand up for our values and fight for our community.

Lynn and I proudly raised our three children here in Topeka and like all parents, want them to have opportunities close to home. Having spent 12 years on the Topeka Public Schools Board of Education I understand that our schools are the foundation of our community. Topeka will only be as strong as our ability to turn educational opportunity into workforce opportunity.

As a former small business owner, I know the gimmicks government has tried to spur economic development. They’ve been ineffective in creating jobs and only caused more uncertainty for Kansas businesses.

To me, leadership means more than showing up. If I have the honor of serving as your state representative, I pledge to be a tireless advocate for our community, transparent in my voting record and accountable to you, not special interest groups.

This campaign is not about me, it’s about our community. I hope during this campaign we can share a dialogue about what is important to you and how we can work together to make Topeka the best place to live, work and raise a family.

I look forward to visiting with you!
