Rep. Lynn Announces She Will Not Seek Re-election to Kansas House

Olathe - Rep. Megan Lynn (R-Olathe) announced today that she will not seek re-election to the Kansas House. Rep. Lynn was first elected to represent the 49th House District in 2018 and won re-election in 2020.

Lynn has been a staunch advocate for improvements to the state's mental health system, protecting child victims of sexual abuse and education. "Some of my proudest moments in the legislature occurred when we all pulled together to help those who struggle with mental illness, to shine a light into that darkness and give Kansans hope and a path forward," said Lynn. She sites working on and helping pass 2021's HB 2088 which helped transform mental health delivery through the use of Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics as one such moment.

She has also stood strong for childhood victims of sexual abuse and stalking. Lynn sponsored legislation to enhance penalties for those who stalk children and expand rights for survivors of sexual assault.

This is not the end of her life in public service, she said. "I have always taught my children that they should use their gifts to make life better for others. While I am not seeking elective office, I am not done trying to model what I teach them, and that will include public service of some kind." Lynn will be working for the Derek Schmidt for Governor campaign this summer and fall.
