Brandon will be the first openly LGBTQ person elected to the Kansas Legislature.
Brandon Woodard is a community organizer, advocate, and lifelong Kansan running to represent the 30th District in the Kansas House of Representatives.
After the implementation of the failed Brownback Tax Experiment, Brandon chose to remain in Kansas after college and move to Lenexa to dedicate his time to making a difference and fighting the radically conservative ideas coming from Topeka. He has spent the past three years mobilizing, training, and organizing young people to turn their energy into meaningful action on the local, state, and federal levels.
Brandon is a proud graduate of public education, having attended Topeka Public Schools and the University of Kansas, earning a bachelors degree in political science with a minor in business. While at KU, Brandon was involved in many campus civic organizations and causes, ultimately serving as Student Body Vice President. As a student leader, he had the opportunity to advocate on a range of issues in the Kansas Legislature, including healthcare coverage for students, investing in K-12 and higher education, and common sense fiscal policy.
A Kansan born and raised, coalition builder, and proven community leader, Brandon is running to make our leaders in Kansas more accountable to voters, to invest in education for our future generations, and to restore responsible budgeting to Topeka.
