State Representative Kevin Corlew has received the endorsement of the Missouri Chamber PAC, in the 2016 general election for the Missouri House of Representatives. The Missouri Chamber PAC goes through a rigorous and deliberative candidate endorsement selection process, which includes analysis of candidate positions on key economic issues and incumbent candidate vote ratings.
Learning of the endorsement, Corlew said, "I'm proud to receive the endorsement of Missouri's business community. I’ll continue to work hard on policies that improve economic opportunity, support small businesses and American manufacturing, and promote jobs."
In the Missouri House of Representatives, Corlew is the vice chair of the Committee on Economic Development and Business Attraction and Retention. He works with industry and community leaders throughout the state to promote an economic environment that creates good-paying jobs.
Corlew also serves on committees that focus on improving the criminal and civil justice systems and maintaining affordable energy. He has been a leader in advocating common-sense lawsuit reform to ensure a fair and efficient court system that reduces frivolous lawsuits. And he has fought back against President Obama's costly and overreaching "Clean Power Plan," which would raise utility costs in Missouri and hurt our businesses, families, and senior citizens.
First elected as State Representative in 2014, Corlew is running for re-election in Missouri House District 14. The legislative district is located in the heart of Kansas City’s Northland area and includes portions of southeast Platte County and southwest Clay County. In the private sector, Corlew is an experienced attorney who represents clients in business disputes. He is a member of several local chambers of commerce, including the Greater Kansas City, Riverside, Gladstone, and Northland Regional chambers.
