4th District Congressional Candidate
Twice elected as Sedgwick County Treasurer, Ron was elected Kansas State Treasurer in 2010, defeating incumbent Dennis McKinney, an appointee of Kathleen Sebelius, by 17 points. He became the first statewide public official from the 4th district in over 15 years. Reelected in 2014, Ron earned more votes, with the highest percentage of the vote, of any statewide candidate on the ballot.
Estes grew up on the family farm near Osage, Kansas, where his mother, Lou, still resides. He has a degree in civil engineering and a graduate degree in business administration. Prior to entering public service, Ron has worked in the aerospace, oil and gas, and manufacturing industries. In 2004, he was elected Sedgwick County Treasurer. During the six years he served in that position, he implemented cost savings that returned over $1.5 million to the taxpayers. Ron, his wife Susan, and three children live in Wichita.
