Guest Speaker Gov. Sam Brownback: What's the Real Story in Kansas? (Saint Louis)

TOPIC:

Guest Speaker Gov. Sam Brownback: "What's the Real Story in Kansas?"

DESCRIPTION:

gov-sam-brownbackSam Brownback was sworn in as governor of Kansas on January 9, 2011.

Brownback served as secretary of the Kansas Board of Agriculture from 1986 to 1993. During that time he also served as a White House fellow in President George H. W. Bush's administration. In 1994, Kansans elected Brownback to the U.S. House of Representatives and, two years later, to the U.S. Senate seat once held by former Senator Bob Dole.  In the Senate, Brownback served on the Appropriations Committee, the Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee, and the Homeland Security Subcommittee. He was a founding member of the Senate Fiscal Watch Team. Honoring his pledge to only serve two elected terms in the U.S. Senate, he did not seek reelection in 2010. As governor, Brownback is focused on growing the state's economy and increasing private­-sector jobs through improved regulations, controlled spending, and lower tax rates.

Brownback and his wife, Mary, have five children. He graduated from Kansas State University in 1978 and the University of Kansas Law School in 1982.
