About Stephen Owens for Kansas Senate

Non-Profit and Community Organizations
I am running for the Kansas Senate in the 31st District currently held by retiring Sen. Carolyn McGinn (R-Sedgwick). I welcome the opportunity to share with the voters why I am the best candidate for this Senate seat. In 2018, I knew I was supposed to challenge the incumbent for the 74th House District. Since winning that primary as an “unknown” conservative challenger, I have Represented the district to the best of my ability, relentlessly giving it my all and now serve in various capacities such as:
  • Chairman - House Corrections / Juvenile Justice Committee
  • Chairman - Kansas Truth Caucus (
  • Member: Judiciary Committee & Appropriations Committee
It truly takes team effort to create policy. As I share some of the legislation I have sponsored that passed, it is important to realize it was far more than just my work that got it done.  Here are a few:
  • Consistently voted to reduce your tax burden while still balancing the budget!
  • Led the charge in reforming the Civil Asset Forfeiture Code with the support of law enforcement
  • Supported our community by ensuring Mirror Inc. received $2.5 Million to create an inpatient juvenile substance use treatment facility for South-Central Kansas.
  • Increased penalties for Fentanyl distribution and endangering children
  • Expanded behavioral health bed funding at NMC Health, St. Joe and others.
  • Protected our FQHC and others by supporting legislation to ensure the 340B program remains healthy in Kansas.
I have already received endorsements from: Congressman Ron Estes Representative Emil Berquist Representative Avery Anderson Sedgwick County Commissioner Ryan Baty Sedgwick County Commissioner Jim Howell Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter Harvey County Sheriff Chad Gay and many Mayors, City Council members, and others.
