Welcome to my website. You will find copies of my legislative newsletters, brief outlines of issues on which I work, summaries of the LegislatureÕs actions that I annually prepare and distribute through the Lawrence Journal World and on line, media releases detailing some of my actions on behalf of our community and state, and more.

I am serving my ninth term in the Kansas House of Representatives. Currently, I am Chairman of the Vision 2020 Committee – the Legislature's long-range planning committee; and am a member of the Energy & Utilities, Local Government, and Agriculture & Natural Resources Budget Committees. I also serve as a leader on a number of professional association task forces and federal advisory committees. My goal in each case is to bring best practices back to Kansas and to educate my state and federal colleagues on Kansans' common sense approaches to solving problems and building a better future for ourselves and future generations.

As a candidate, I walk door-to-door meeting voters and asking about issues you wish to discuss. I believe voters deserve the opportunity to meet and talk with the person asking for their votes. During the 2008 campaign, I personally knocked on almost 7,000 doors and in 2010 I visited more than 6,000 doors. I sincerely believe that one of the most important parts of being an elected official is to listen.

My parents taught me to respect all people and that the primary role of government is to help those least able to do so for themselves – the young, the infirm, and the elderly. They also taught me that government provides services that we cannot reasonably provide for ourselves – roads, public safety, water and food supply safety; and that government should ensure educational opportunities for all.

I appreciate your consideration of my public service record and commitment to Lawrence and Kansas. You may contact me at my state e-mail address: tom.sloan@house.ks.gov; my personal e-mail address: tom@tomsloan.org; or by writing me at the State Capitol, Topeka, KS 66612.
