State Senator Caryn Tyson completes tour of all 25 counties in Kansas’ 2nd Congressional District

Caryn Tyson, a Kansas State Senator running for the Kansas 2nd Congressional District seat being vacated by Lynn Jenkins, released the following statement:

“I am greatly encouraged by the very positive response I received during my visit of all 25 counties in the 2nd District.

“This will be a grassroots campaign. I believe the people of the 2nd District are looking for a representative they can trust – someone who will truly listen, someone who represents their values, and someone who has the real-world experience necessary to get the job done.

“Career politicians aren’t the answer. In fact, they’re the problem. Politicians pretend to be something they’re not but leaders have a record that demonstrates who they are. I trust the people of the 2nd District to pick a leader with proven results who shares their Kansas values.”

Caryn Tyson has math and computer science degrees from Kansas State and an engineering management degree from KU. After graduating she began working in the Information Technology industry and continued working in this field for more than 25 years. Caryn’s work included space shuttle support for NASA where she received multiple awards for achievement and teamwork.

Caryn also served in the Kansas House and Senate and is presently the Chair of the Tax Committee, one of most important committees in the Kansas Senate. As one of the leading freedom fighters in the Senate, Tyson earned a 100 percent rating from the American Conservative Union in 2016.

Caryn and her husband, Tim – both fifth generation Kansans – own and operate Tyson Ranch in Linn County, established in 1871 by Tim’s great-great grandfather.
