Campaign Update
With the election so close things are busier than ever! Below I have highlighted events from recent weeks I have attended around the area. 
Had the privilege of speaking with Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt. Ready to move Kansas forward!
Many thanks to Rob Pearce for hosting Franklin County Farm Bureau, allowing us to tour his impressive facilities, and learn about QSI's immeasurable commitment to our communities.
Photos with the Eagles and Trojans volleyball squads. If you haven't been out to support these young ladies and student sections yet, you're missing out on some great leaders, role models, and fun.
Bulldogs volleyball and student section!
Thank you to Mrs. Manes, Mr. French, Mr. Chisam, Mr. White, and many other educators in Osawatomie for their endless dedication to our future and kids in Osawatomie. 
Scenes from Senior Night in Trojan Country!
With some great supporters at the Wellsville Days Parade. 
More photos from the always fun Wellsville Days. Couldn't ask for a better day or better people. Huge thanks to everyone who makes this such a fantastic event and wonderful community in which to live!
From physics and hunter ed to government and English, I appreciate these guys and gals letting me spend the day with them. I learned a great deal about what we can do to improve our education system and our future. We have talented young folks and educators in HD5, and we owe them our best!
Wellsville Homecoming. Tremendously blessed to be part of a community that cares so much about our amazing kids and neighbors. And incredibly proud of everyone's efforts on and off the field.
Many thanks to CDO Shannon Wickliffe and fellow Wellsville Eagle Lauren Bohi for the informative tour of KidsTLC.
The 18th Annual Greeley Smokeoff was the real deal! Great people, great food, great environment, and great music.
Always a great time at the Wellsville Car Show!
A great time in Lancer Country celebrating Colony Day with old and new friends. You can't beat my parade squad!
