WICHITA – Kansas Republican Ron Estes announced Friday he will seek re-election to serve a second term as state treasurer.

First elected in 2010, Estes was the first statewide elected official from the city of Wichita in more than 20 years and has spent his first term successfully advocating responsible fiscal policy for Kansas.

“I am honored to serve the citizens of this great state and am proud of the accomplishments the State Treasurer’s Office has achieved throughout the last three years,” Estes said. “During my term, I’ve remained committed to streamlining the process of returning unclaimed property, strengthening the Learning Quest higher education savings program, and identifying common sense solutions for Kansas taxpayers. If the people of Kansas entrust me to a second term, I will continue to uphold these policies.”
