Brandon Woodard is a community organizer, advocate, and lifelong Kansan running for re-election to represent the 108th District in the Kansas House of Representatives. District 108 is a newly-drawn district after the 2022 Legislative Redistricting process. It contains parts of Lenexa, Olathe, and Overland Park.
Brandon currently works as a fundraiser at KU, advising alumni on ways to make a positive impact on the University through philanthropy.
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.
