Virgil Peck (R-Dist.12) has filed for re-election

The five-term Republican legislator from Tyro, State Representative Virgil Peck, has announced he has filed for re-election to the Kansas House of Representatives.
Peck said, “It has been an honor for me to serve the citizens of House District 12 in the State Capitol. I am humbled by the amazing support I have received from my constituents and remember every day that they put me in this position to take a stand for the conservative values we share. During my time as a state representative I have worked on many issues that benefit rural Kansas; including a smaller, more efficient state government with lower taxes for hardworking families.”
Peck was first elected to the Kansas House in 2004. During his time in the Legislature he has served on many standing and special legislative committees; including agriculture, transportation, taxation and insurance. As a senior member of the majority party, he currently serves as chair of the Transportation and Public Safety Budget Committee, on the powerful House Appropriations Committee, General Government Budget Committee and the Joint Legislative Post Audit Committee.  
House District 12 encompasses the western portion of Montgomery County, all of Chautauqua County, the three southeast townships in Elk County, the eastern half of Cowley County, and the southeast one-third of Butler County.
