Hard working, honest, independent-minded, understands budgets, focused on helping Kansas’ children. These words describe Lynn Rogers, candidate for Kansas Senate, District 25.
It was my honor to serve for 12 years with Rogers on the Wichita school board. He always did his homework and came to meetings prepared. He had the unique ability to drill down to the facts and then use this information to make carefully considered decisions that he truly believed were the best for the Wichita students and staff.
I know that Rogers will take these talents to Topeka. He will stand up to Gov. Sam Brownback. He will work to put Kansas back on the right track where education, services for the elderly and those struggling to make ends meet, law enforcement and our roads and highway system are supported and raised to the level that Kansans expect and want.
I urge you to vote for Lynn Rogers on Nov. 8. You won’t be disappointed. He will listen to your needs and will represent the voters.

Letters to the Editor in the Wichita Eagle, November 6, 2016
I had the privilege of learning to be a quality school board member beside my friend, Connie Dietz. She encouraged me to run and we worked resolutely for the success of students and employees of USD 259, and celebrated our successes together–school dedications, raising test scores, our first air conditioning,safe rooms, salary increases and many awards and commendations for our teachers and administration. This year, we proudly celebrated the opening of our new Southeast High School, a project that we began 10 years ago. Her long-time service to our community has tangible results.
Connie is the Executive Director of the Career Development Center at Wichita State University.
