Milack Talia is an attorney, businessman and public servant living in Shawnee, Kansas. He serves as business manager of an advertising firm and as Kansas State Representative for the 23rd District. Milack graduated from KU in 2003 with his law degree and in 2000 with a degree in mechanical engineering. He's proud also that during high school he became an Eagle Scout. He explains that each chapter of his life has provided opportunities for triumph in the face of struggle. He told us,
"Through these struggles, I worked towards my goals, fought for what I believe in, and never lost hope throughout the darkest times. Every achievement contributes to my knowledge and every experience gives me new insights into life.
"The day I received my cancer diagnosis was my darkest moment, but it became my finest hour. My doctors couldn't explain why or how it happened, so I turned to God. Though He did not answer, blessings He provided became evident. The cancer had not yet spread to every part of my body. Family and friends loved me and stayed with me through my treatment and recovery. Doctors and nurses gave me the best treatment and care."
Milack is driven to help others now. He explains that now that his cancer is cured, he hopes to use his education and experience to provide for his family and help others in need. As he looks back over that experience, Milack identifies with words written by Aeschylus, a Greek poet, who elegantly described similar triumph:
Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget,
falls drop by drop upon the heart,
until in our own despair, against our will,
comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.
Milack says that God gave him wisdom to realize the blessings he has received. At the same time, he became even more aware of the hardships and misfortunes that many others still endure. Knowing of the ongoing struggles for those less fortunate, Milack is now more determined than ever to serve the public and offer his time and talents to helping others. He is dedicated to:
- Fighting to ensure that all Kansans have access to affordable health insurance;
- Creating the best quality public school and college education system, statewide;
- Establishing public policies that help all Kansans attain their American Dreams; and,
- Placing his highest priority on promoting the common good.
Milack also saves time for fun. He enjoys camping, football, biking and astronomy.
He enjoys reading. Some of his favorite books are On Liberty, by John Stuart Mill, Two Treatises on Government, by John Locke, 1984, by George Orwell, God's Politics, by Jim Wallis, and The Social Contract, by Jean Jacques Rousseau.
