|Info||Congresswoman Nancy Boyda represents the Kansas Second Congressional District, which includes Topeka, Leavenworth, Manhattan, and most of northeast and southeast Kansas. |
Nancy graduated with honors from William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri, where she received dual degrees in chemistry and education. She began her career in 1978 working as an analytical chemist and field inspector for the Environmental Protection Agency. Over the next two decades, she held management positions in several pharmaceutical companies, including Marion Laboratories.
During Nancy's campaign for Congress, she developed a reputation as a common-sense fiscal conservative willing to reach across party lines to solve today's most pressing problems. The Kansas City Star described Nancy as "an outspoken advocate for reform at home and wiser policies abroad" who "speaks forcefully against wasteful federal spending."
Nancy's first priority is to directly serve her constituents through her two district offices. Her other priorities include drawing upon her pharmaceutical industry experience to help rein in America's skyrocketing prescription drug prices; advocating for the Second District's three military bases; and, passing strong ethics reform laws to reduce the influence of the billion-dollar lobbying industry.
Nancy lives in Topeka with her husband, Steve Boyda. Steve grew up on a farm in Marshall County, is a Marine Corps veteran and a former Marshall County Attorney. She is the mother of two children and five stepchildren and attends Countryside United Methodist Church in Topeka.
