Like many Americans, I am growing weary of this election cycle. But for us Kansans, it is important that we stay connected and change the direction our state is going.
I am disappointed and concerned with what a failed “experiment” has done to our state. The poor economic condition and reduced credit rating of our state are not what we are accustomed to. We need to reverse course; we need positive change.
I believe that positive change comes from drastically changing the makeup of our Legislature. That’s why I am encouraging my friends and neighbors to vote for Lynn Rogers for state Senate, District 25.
I worked with Rogers for many years on the Wichita school board and developed a very healthy respect for him. He possesses the Kansas values we need in Topeka. Although fiscally responsible, he also sees the need to invest in our future. That investment would result in improved schools and a renewed focus on actually creating an atmosphere that lures businesses and jobs to our state.
Rogers is an independent thinker and won’t be bullied by party bosses or our governor. He will be a breath of fresh air for us who truly want positive change in our state.
