Both of the City of McPherson's representatives to the statehouse in Topeka have filed for re-election.

Senator Richard Wilborn, representing the 35th District, sent out a press release Monday afternoon announcing he had re-filed for a second term in Topeka. Wilborn is currently serving on a number of committees, including Utilities, Federal and State Affairs and Insurance.

"First of all, I would like to thank the people of the 35th Senate District for their input and past support," Wilborn said in the release. Since being elected, I have worked hard to earn their trust and represent their values. While Kansas continues to have one of the nation's lowest unemployment rates and more Kansans are working today than ever before, there is still much to do. I am filing for re-election to continue the work of making Kansas the best place to work. live and raise a family."

A check of records with the Kansas Secretary of State's office shows that 73rd District Representative Les Mason filed for re-election on Jan. 8. Mason, also, is in his first term in Topeka and serves on the Transportation and Taxation Committees.

A primary election for non-presidential Kansas races will be held on Aug. 2. A presidential primary will be held on March 5, with the deadline to register to vote for that primary on Jan. 27.
