Rep. Bowers Announces Staff

Rep. Elaine Bowers (R – Concordia) announced today the members of her staff who will be assisting her in representing the 107th District. Pat Williams will serve as executive assistant. Jody McCready will be interning during the legislative session this year.

Pat has been an assistant and secretary for six years and knows the Statehouse and the State of Kansas very well. She previously worked for the Kansas Department of Revenue for 18 years before retiring but returned soon after to work for the Kansas Legislature during the 90 day legislative session. Jody is a 2001 Chapman High School graduate and later finished her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Ottawa University in 2005. She is currently completing her Masters in Social Welfare at the University of Kansas. Her parents are Louie and Terry Rieff of Hope and Ted McCready of Smolan.

“I think it is important for my district to know who is answering the phone when they call or who they will meet when they come to the Capitol; It helps to put a face and name together. I’m very excited to have both Pat and Jody working with me this year. They are very enthusiastic and I know they will do good work,” said Rep. Bowers.

Rep. Bowers serves on four committees including, Federal and State affairs, Agriculture & Natural Resources, the Special Committee on Legislative Streamlining and is the Vice-Chair of the Social Service Budget Committee. She represents the 107th District, which includes Cloud, Dickinson, Lincoln, and Ottawa counties.
