ABOUT  KURT
I grew up locally and graduated from Shawnee Mission North before earning my Degree at the University of Kansas with a Major in Communications and Public Relations and a Minor in Political Science. 

I have worked in the pharmaceutical industry since graduation, spending more than 20 years in the field of diabetes.  For more than 14 years managed a team of direct reports.

Politically, I am a fiscal conservative but believe in the concept of non-partisan local elections.  I am a coalition builder, and would seek to bring the council together (which has been a problem in Shawnee previously). My goal would be to work hard to represent my fellow constituents in Ward 3 while still looking out for the greater interest of the entire city.

Personally, I am the proud father of an 18 year-old daughter and 16 year-old son. I have been married to my amazing wife Terri for 23 years. We have lived in our current home in Shawnee for more than 15 years. My entire immediate family all reside in Johnson County.  I spent my free time coaching sporting events when the kids were younger, but have recently taken on new interests which will hopefully include Shawnee government.
