Jeff Caldwell is a fourth generation Kansan. In 1909, Jeff’s great-great-grandfather, Charles Wilson, and Wilson’s business partner, worked to build America’s first patented helicopter in Goodland, Kansas. The entryway of the Johnson County Courthouse, and a wall in the Johnson County Museum, host a photo of Caldwell’s great-grandfather, Lawrence Humbird, standing in front of Leawood’s first police car for the all-voluntary police department. Jeff’s grandparents, Gary and Charlene Cox, owned and operated a small pavement painting and parking block business called Mark-A-Line in Shawnee, while still maintaining full-time jobs at what is now Union Pacific Railroad and Bethany Hospital, respectively. Caldwell’s parents, Jeff and Debra, are long time Kansas business owners. Jeff Caldwell’s roots run deep in the Sunflower State.
Jeff has been involved in politics for over ten years and has helped dozens of other campaigns. Jeff is passionate, driven and motivated to move Kansas toward better times.
Jeff Caldwell is running to enhance the life of all Kansans, ensure the safety of all Kansans, and to be the leading representative of all Kansans. Jeff is tired of seeing crowds of people fill committee rooms in Topeka, to only be overruled by a small handful of representatives against useful action. Caldwell desires to be your next Governor of Kansas because the government and politicians have implemented economically stifling legislation, and have time and time again, refused to listen to the voice of Kansans.
