Jilka was the Mayor of Salina, Kansas for twelve years. He attended the University of South Carolina, receiving a Master's degree in Comparative Literature.
Jilka's website highlights the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"A strategy of targeted tax incentives for businesses and investments in education, including vocational education, can successfully promote job creation in Kansas."
- Excerpt:"I oppose efforts to phase out the state income tax, which will inevitably lead to higher property and sales taxes and/or huge cuts to education and vital services."
- Excerpt:"I will oppose efforts to rewrite the formula in ways that would shift more of the financial burden for public education to local property owners."
- Excerpt:"Efforts to privatize Medicaid have not been successful in other states and should be carefully monitored in Kansas. Our frail elderly and disabled must not be allowed to become pawns in the state's budget debates."
- Excerpt:"Efforts to encourage and facilitate voting among our citizenry should be promoted."
Jilka ran in the 2012 election for Kansas House of Representatives District 71. He ran unopposed in the August 7 Democratic primary and was defeated by Diana Dierks (R) in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.
