Young Dodge City Representative, and FHSU History Department Alumni, Considered Up and Comer in Topeka

Brian Weber is a 2010 graduate of our MA program in History.  His thesis was titled:  “Progressive Municipal Reform as Reflected in Dodge City Newspapers:  The Progressive Agenda of Robert Wright, George Hoover, and Adolf Gluck”.

Topeka – News source for state government insiders, Hawver’s Capitol Report, released the 2011 edition of Kansas Earthmovers naming Representative Brian Weber, (R-Dodge City) one of the top ten movers and shakers in Topeka. The bipartisan list included notable Kansas leaders ranging from House Speaker Mike O’Neal (R-Hutchinson) and Governor Sam Brownback to House Minority Leader Paul Davis (D-Lawrence) and Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

Weber’s leadership abilities have been recognized and earlier this year he was appointed by the Speaker to the National Conference of State Legislatures Symposium for Emerging Leaders.

Weber is a co-owner of Weber Refrigeration & Heating, Inc. and represents the 119th District serving on four committees: Agriculture and Natural Resources, House Redistricting, Taxation and Health and Human Services. He also serves on the Agriculture and Energy Committee for the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) and is a member of the Board of Directors for the Harvest America Corporation.
