Don’t miss Congressman Kevin Yoder who is our next speaker at Elephant Club, where he will provide a Congressional update.
Representative Kevin Yoder is a 5th generation Kansan and grew up on a grain and livestock farm in rural Kansas near a town called Yoder. It was on his family farm where Kevin learned the true value of hard work, and saw first-hand the ingenuity and prairie spirit that makes Kansas such a special place. He represents the Third Congressional District of Kansas, which includes Johnson County, Wyandotte County and the northeast corner of Miami County.
In 2017, Kevin was sworn in for his fourth term and returns to the House Appropriations Committee. In the 115th Congress, he will serve as the Chairman of the Legislative Branch Subcommittee, as well as continue to serve on the Agriculture and Financial Services Subcommittees, focusing on balancing the federal budget, reducing the national debt, and supporting policies that help private sector job growth. Thanks to his work on the committee, the federal government is appropriating less money today than it was when Kevin walked into Congress. Additionally, he will serve as Vice Chairman for Member Services at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).
Kevin has received several additional accolades and awards for his voting record and leadership on various issues, including the Champion of Change Award from the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS), Legislator of the Year Award from the American Society of Transplantation (AST), Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB), Friend of Farm Bureau Award from the Kansas Farm Bureau, Spirit of Enterprise Award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and Legislative Excellence Award from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). In 2012, along with Representative Emanuel Cleaver II (D-MO), Kevin received the Consensus Civility Award for his efforts to bring civility to public life as a Member of Congress.
Prior to being elected to Congress, Kevin represented Leawood and Overland Park as a Representative in the Kansas State Legislature, where he chaired the House Appropriations Committee.
Kevin is a proud graduate of the University of Kansas where he received degrees in political science, English, and law. He and his family live in Overland Park.
