Elect Estabrook



Why I am running:  

I was born into a family where public service was valued and important. My parents were firefighters, social workers, and nurses. My grandparents served in the military during WWII and later in the Army Corps of Engineers. I've served in the US Army and on the Board of Education and have proven that I can be a solution-oriented public servant for Manhattan. 

The City Commission is a legislative body and for anything to get done we must find common ground and work together as a commission. I have experience building coalitions both locally and statewide. During my time on the school board I learned what it means to be able to not agree on every issue but find each other’s strengths and focus on what can be accomplished as a local legislative body. 


Estabrook has been part of the Manhattan community for nearly two decades, working tirelessly to make it a better place. He is a K-State graduate that served in the US Army with a combat deployment to Afghanistan. After his active duty service, he began working as a Case Manager for Veteran families facing homelessness across Kansas.

In 2013, Estabrook was elected to a 4-year term on the USD 383 Board of Education. He served on the Manhattan Parks and Recreation Board, the USD 383 Head Start Policy Council, Early Learning Community Task Force, and as Vice-President of the USD 383 Board of Education. Estabrook worked at Sunflower CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocates) until he was offered the Executive Director role of the Save Kansas Coalition, where he promoted civic engagement across Kansas that ultimately resulted in a more moderate Kansas Legislature over the 3 years he worked in that role.  

In 2019, Estabrook was elected Vice-President of NAMI Kansas (National Alliance on Mental Illness) to advocate and educate people about Mental Health issues in Kansas. Aaron is currently the Business and Community Liaison for Flint Hills Job Corps. He is building coalitions of employers and decision-makers across the state dedicated to the success of Job Corps. Estabrook believes in the mission of Job Corps and is working each day to help our youth up and out of poverty. Aaron and his wife Dantia MacDonald live in downtown Manhattan with their two daughters Sophia and Kennedy.
