Bob Montgomery is an American small business owner and politician from Olathe, Kansas, formerly a Republican member of the Kansas House of Representatives representing the 15th House District,[1] which covers southwest Olathe.

Legislative service and politics[edit]

Montgomery has been a member of Olathe's City Council. His first term in the House began in January 2011 when he was elected by a caucus of Republican precinct leaders to replace fellow Republican Rob Olson in the 26th House District who was moving to the Kansas Senate.[2] He was appointed to the standing committees on insurance; veterans, military and homeland security; financial institutions; elections; and transportation.[3]

In 2012, Montgomery resigned from 26th district after the Federal Courts released new state house districts maps, in order to run for the new 15th district.[4] He ran unopposed in the general election and defeated Elliot Lahn in the Republican primary.

Montgomery resigned from office effective December 31, 2013 citing family reasons.[5]
