Amanda Adkins Files to Have Name on GOP Primary Ballot
Overland Park, Kan. – Amanda Adkins, Republican candidate for US Congress in Kansas’ Third Congressional District today filed official paperwork to have her name on the August 4th, 2020 Republican Primary ballot for Kansas’ Third Congressional District.
“There are not enough conservative, female, business-minded voices in Congress,” Adkins said. “I am running to represent the people of the Third District of Kansas because my experience as a mother, businesswoman and philanthropist will bring the perspective missing in Washington today. As a life-long conservative, I have always believed the government’s role should be that of providing economic lift to a region, not furthering dependency on the government.
“Now more than ever people want experience and clear direction to solve problems facing our community. It will be my honor to serve my country and bring results for my community.”
Adkins started her campaign in September voicing a Vision for America, and went on to share healthcare and economic solutions in the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic. She is the only candidate in the race with a proven conservative track record and extensive professional business experience in the healthcare sector.
Adkins is a long-time conservative, having been twice-elected as the Chair of the Kansas Republican Party. She is also the co-founder of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Excellence in Public Service Series which empowers Republican women in the areas of leadership, government and politics. Adkins worked as a business executive at a global Kansas City based healthcare and information technology company for 15 years. Prior to that she served as Professional Staff on the U.S. House Rules Committee and advised on commerce issues in the US Senate. Adkins also founded the nonprofit organization, Systems of Care Initiative to make targeted investments in young children preparing them for school and the future workforce.
Adkins graduated from the University of Kansas and has lived in Overland Park for the past 17 years with her husband of 20 years, Jason, and their two children.
