I originally filed for the 24 division of the 18th judicial district. Since then something unexpected happened. Governor Sam Brownback appointed me to the vacated 12th division. This means that I am now the incumbent in division 12. Even though circumstances have changed, the theme of my campaign remains the same. The citizens of Sedgwick County deserve a judge with integrity, experience, and who respects others. I believe that I am the man who meets this criteria and hope to continue to serve you as judge through the 2016 elections and beyond.
I have practiced law in Kansas for almost 17 years as a prosecutor, criminal defense attorney, family law attorney, estate planning attorney, business law attorney, and even did pro bono work as an allied attorney with the Alliance Defending Freedom in pro-family, pro-life, and pro-religious liberty matters. I am a father of three precious daughters, married for more than twenty years to Mona, and am an active member of Family Church.
I am humbled and honored to serve you as judge. I would also appreciate your support in the campaign. This will be an aggressive campaign to ensure that the voters in Sedgwick County are fully informed of the relevant issues as well as my view on jurisprudence (the legislature not judges make law!).
God bless, Kevin Mark Smith
