Kansas Republican Party Director CiCi Rojas


Kansas City, MO – Kansas City native CiCi Rojas was recently tapped by the new chair of the Kansas Republican Party Amanda Adkins to serve as the state party's new executive director. Rojas was president of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Kansas City. She went on to work at the national level for the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Washington, and most recently, headed up the Hispanic Chamber in Dallas. KCUR's Susan B. Wilson sat down with CiCi Rojas this week to talk about the new job. Rojas explained that her interest in politics runs in the family.

A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Susan admits that her “first love” was radio, being an avid listener since childhood. However, she spent much of her career in mental health, healthcare administration, and sports psychology (Susan holds a PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and an MBA from the Bloch School of Business at UMKC.) In the meantime, Wilson satisfied her journalistic cravings by doing public speaking, providing “expert” interviews for local television, and being a guest commentator/contributor to KPRS’s morning drive time show and the teen talk show “Generation Rap.”
