Issues

Throughout his life, Mike Thompson has worked to bring people together and get things done.
Now he’s ready to take those problem-solving skills to Topeka — to put us first!
Mike’s not afraid to stand up to the high-priced lobbyists, and he’ll look for bipartisan solutions to keep our state moving forward.

Help Working Families & Protect Seniors

It’s time to grow jobs and wages — and address skyrocketing property taxes and utility costs by cutting wasteful spending.

Keep Neighborhoods Safe & Strong

Our community and first responders must stand together to improve public safety and reduce crime.

Focus on Results for Kids

Let’s get more education dollars into the classroom, give parents a seat at the table, and focus on better outcomes for our students. Results matter!

Protect Our WyCo Way of Life

Strong families are the foundation of our community. That means politicians should put Wyandotte County families first, not special interests or bigger government. And we must work together to defend our constitutional rights and the most vulnerable among us, including the unborn.

House District 33

Proud home of the Kansas Speedway!

Interstates 70 and 435 run through the heart of the 33rd House District, and the Kaw flows along our southern border. In this special place, we enjoy NASCAR, the Legends, Azura Amphitheater, the Ag Center, and a lot of the great outdoors.

Best of all, we have hardworking people, great churches, and wonderful families in our district, which encompasses Bonner Springs, Edwardsville, the southwest corner of Kansas City, and the northernmost tip of Lake Quivira.
