Perry, a Democrat, is seeking her second term in office. She sits on the Transportation Committee, and the Judiciary and Federal and State Affairs Committee. Perry signaled a commitment to public education funding in a statement that accompanied her announcement.
“It has been an honor to serve my district, and work to craft policy that benefits our citizens,” she said. “I had the benefit of excellent public schools from Kindergarten through Law School and I will work to protect those institutions, as they are Kansas’ greatest asset.”
Perry, who lives in Overland Park, is an attorney. She made the announcement in conjunction with fellow Democrat and 22nd district Rep. Nancy Lusk
As of this writing, all four northeast Johnson County representatives — Perry, as well as Republicans Barbara Bollier, Stephanie Clayton and Melissa Rooker — have filed for reelection, and none have drawn challengers.
