Fifth generation Kansan files to run for 40th Senate District

TOPEKA – Alex Herman, of Hays, filed today with the Kansas Secretary of State’s Office for the Senate’s 40th District, which includes Cheyenne, Decatur, Ellis, Gove, Graham, Logan, Norton, Rawlins, Sheridan, Sherman, Thomas, Trego, and Wallace counties along with portions of Phillips county.

“The voices of northwest Kansans are not being heard in Topeka,” said Herman. “It is time for a change in the Legislature to move away from the Brownback allies who simply rubber stamp a reckless agenda rather than do what the people want.”

Herman is a fifth generation Kansan and a lifelong resident of Ellis County. He says he is most concerned with the direction the state is going under the leadership of the governor and his Legislative allies, especially in rural areas.

“Kansans deserves better, they deserve to have a voice,” said Herman. “I am committed to defending the needs of rural Kansans, and working to move our state forward in a manner to sustain a vibrant rural way of life.”

Herman is an attorney in Hays. He and his wife, Abby, have two children.
