Representatives of Manhattan, Carlin and Dodson, candidates for re-election

66th District Representative Sydney Carlin (D-Manhattan) and 67th District Representative Mike Dodson (R-Manhattan).

Manhattan’s two Kansas House representatives have sought re-election.

66th District Rep. Sydney Carlin announced her intention to seek another term this week. The 77-year-old Democrat has held the seat since 2003. She currently serves on the House Appropriations Committee and is the most senior member of the Agriculture Committee and the Natural Resources Budget Committee. She also sits on the Joint Committee on Corrections and Juvenile Justice Oversight. Carlin ran unopposed in the 2020 election.

Representative for the 67th District, Mike Dodson, will seek a second term in the Legislative Assembly. The 76-year-old Republican and former city commissioner announced plans to file a new case earlier this month. Dodson sits on the Elections Committee, as well as the Insurance and Pensions Committee, as well as the Veterans and Military, and Trade, Labor and Economic Development Committees. Dodson defeated Cheryl Arthur in the 2020 election, when the seat was vacated by retired Tom Phillips.

Last month, 51st District Rep. Ron Highland of Wamego announced his retirement from the Kansas Legislature at the end of his term, which expires in January. The 75-year-old Republican supported Manhattan lawyer and businessman Kenny Titus.
