As Topeka toils into midnight hours, outside the watchful eye of the Kansas public, many of us are out talking to voters, helping them see another option - a transparency, accountable, and accessible option.
There’s nothing conservative about forcing the largest middle class tax increase in Kansas history, running up record debt and threatening more credit downgrades, taking power away from communities, tampering with the checks and balances by threatening to impeach the Kansas Supreme Court, and defunding education so not every child has the chance to become an educated and involved participant in our democracy. I believe in strong local government, because it keeps the power closest to you, the citizens. I believe that the Kansas Supreme Court has every right to make sure the legislative and executive branches of our Kansas government stay within the bounds of their power. And most importantly, I believe a solid public education is the best way to maintain a vibrant and accountable democracy. That is why I hope you, the voters, will support my campaign.
The Republican primary on August 2nd is your best chance to restore pride in our government and state. My campaign is sending out applications for mail ballots if you would rather vote from the comfort of your own home.

Republican Candidate, Kansas Senate, 11th District
As an Overland Park City Councilman, I had the opportunity to cut the ribbon at Adelman Travel Agency. It is small businesses like this that keep our economy growing. I will work in the Senate so that the employees of Adelman can continue to have quality schools and roads here in Johnson County.
4/27/2016 – Attended a Ribbon Cutting at KU Rehabilitation Center
On Wednesday I had the honor of attending a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new University of Kansas Rehabilitation Center. While I’m overjoyed this new center will be providing excellent care for patients and outstanding training for students, I’m worried about the continuing cuts to higher education. Earlier this year, the Governor and Legislature cut public higher education in Kansas by 3%, with more cuts to follow. Bringing jobs to Kansas starts with having an educated workforce, and investing in universities that educate entrepreneurs and skilled workers will create more jobs than tax cuts ever will, despite what the Governor says.
