Meet your Executive Board
Tony Bergida | Chair
Catholic. My beautiful wife, Anna, and I live with our son and pre-born baby girl in Olathe. I come from a family of entrepreneurs. My first business was selling golf balls out of my family’s backyard on the 18th hole. Today I do corporate strategy for a local engineering firm.
I'm passionate about our community, education, and innovation. Excited for you to join us bringing together moderates, conservatives, and libertarians to build the next generation of Republicans in Johnson County!
Bonquay Bryant | Vice Chair
I am a Conservative Republican having spent the better portion of my adult life in Public Service and Safety, first serving as a Field Artilleryman in the U.S. Army and afterward working in Law Enforcement.
I am a proud Kansan committed to supporting agriculture and Farmers, protecting our inalienable rights to bear arms, defending Religious Freedom, and supporting our Public Safety personnel.
Matt Bingesser | Treasurer
Attorney and lifelong resident of Kansas. A graduate of the University of Missouri - Kansas City and Washburn University School of Law, I currently work as a state legal counsel in Kansas City on juvenile cases after previously working in children and youth ministries for over 3 years.
I’ve served two terms as a College Republicans chapter president and has also served as student body vice president while in law school. Proud campaigner for Republican candidates in Johnson County since 2018
Jack Allen | Secretary
I’ve been a proud resident of Johnson County my entire life. Graduate student at Midamerica Nazarene in Olathe, studying Business Leadership and working as a graduate assistant in the athletic department.
A highlight of my experience in politics so far was working for Mike Beehler. Mike was a political outsider, a devout Christian who loved his country. I believe as we share that gift with others, God will help to bring back the integrity in our Nation.I believe the Johnson County Young Republicans can serve as a light for college students and young adults who are looking for truth.
Hello and welcome to the Johnson County Young Republicans!
We are a group of young professionals and individuals ages 18-40 living in Johnson County, KS and the surrounding counties in the Kansas City metro area. Some of us are starting young families and many of us are people of faith. We have members in almost every industry and walk of life. Our members are med students, agricultural researchers, attorneys, engineers, and many other professions all united by shared Kansan values and love of our wonderful community.
The Republican Party philosophy is rooted in the belief in God-given individual rights and responsibilities. We believe that power should be invested in people at the local level. Americans should control their own destiny and lawmakers closest to the problem should make decisions instead of impersonal, far-away bureaucrats. Local government, local education, and community life belong to the people.
