OVERLAND PARK — This morning in Topeka, Republican Ken Selzer, CPA, filed for the office of Kansas Insurance Commissioner. He released the following statement regarding the office of Insurance Commissioner and the upcoming campaign.

"During the past year, I have participated in forums and met with many folks across the state. The main issues that continue to concern Kansans are health care cost and job creation. The next Insurance Commissioner must have the background to assist Kansans with these issues,” Selzer said.

"As a Certified Public Accountant with over 30 years of insurance and reinsurance experience directly relevant to the Kansas Insurance Commissioner's office, I will advocate every day to emphasize consistent, balanced regulations that will in-turn create competition in all lines of insurance which will benefit all Kansans. I will promote a business environment that will encourage insurance companies to consider calling Kansas home.”

Selzer is a fourth-generation Kansan and a graduate of Kansas State University. He and his wife, Deb, are involved in activities across Kansas, including in his hometown of Goessel, where they provide scholarships to graduating seniors. Selzer has leadership positions in the Kansas Society of Certified Public Accountants and Rotary, and serves on the board of directors of the Heart of America Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. He and Deb reside in Leawood and have two daughters.
