Republican State Representative Tory Marie Arnberger officially filed for reelection Wednesday in her hometown of Great Bend. Arnberger first won election to the Kansas House of Representatives in 2016 and won an uncontested reelection in 2018.
“I am honored to serve the community where I was born and raised,” said Arnberger. “Every day I go to work to make our region the best place to live, work and raise a family.”
Arnberger, with a business education degree, supported rural education as a member of the House Education Committee. She also works for affordable health-care options for central Kansas residents as a member of the Health and Human Services Committee and the Special Committee on Health.
“I’m running for reelection to continue the fight for rural Kansas and our way of life,” said Arnberger. “As redistricting pushes more seats to the population centers in the east, it is important we have local leaders in the House representing our interests.”
Arnberger serves in committee leadership as the vice chair of the General Government Budget Committee, overseeing complex budgets for major agencies. She is also serving in House leadership as the Majority Deputy Whip.
“Balancing a budget happens at every kitchen table in the district,” said Arnberger. “Government should be no different. I’ll fight the push by the governor to raid the Bank of KPERS and prioritize our schools and roads over wasteful spending.”
Arnberger is a Fort Hays State University graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Business Education. She works as the human resources director for Pryor Automatic Fire Sprinkler in Great Bend.
The primary election in Kansas is Aug. 4.
