Owen Donohoe is a former Republican member of the Kansas House of Representatives, representing District 39 from 2007 to 2013.

Donohoe moved to Kansas in 1989 to start his own medical device company, Donohoe and Associates. He has been married for 42 years and has 5 children and 9 grandchildren.[1]

Policy Positions

Donohoe's website lists his main issues as energy, tackling the state budget crisis, tax relief, property rights, quality education, support for life and ethical stem-cell research, and lawful treatment of illegal immigrants.[2] He describes himself as a "fiscal conservative, for limited government, a strong proponent of individual property rights, and pro-life."

Donohoe refused to take Project Vote Smart's 2008 Political Courage Test. The test, which is administered to all candidates for presidential, congressional, gubernatorial, and state legislative offices, asks one central question - "Are you willing to tell citizens your positions on the issues you will most likely face on their behalf?"[3]
