Steineger represented Wyandotte County in the Kansas Senate for 16 years, first as a Democrat and later as a Republican.

The former state senator wants to see utility costs lowered for Kansas City, KS residents.

Property taxes and utility bills are sources of overspending within the county according to Steineger. Of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and the Board of Public Utilities, Steineger says there is "a long sad history of nepotism... that has controlled Wyandotte County local government for as long as I can remember." With his experience in the state senate, he believes he is the right candidate to stop overspending for the county's residents.
