Dear Friend:

After a few days of relaxation following our primary victory, I jumped right back into my involvement in the Overland Park and Leawood communities. I’m very fortunate to have such great support. I’ve been scheduling events and meetings, making thank you phone calls to supporters and donors, and getting to know some of the current legislators. I’m now in the process of transitioning into the general election, which will be a different animal than the primary was in several ways.

First, my opponent and I have had a few conversations regarding campaign ethics. We both believe Leawood and Overland Park are sick of mudslinging and dirty campaigning. If you see any negative mailers against my opponent in the general election, know that they are not affiliated with my campaign. Those affiliated with my campaign will have “Paid for by John Skubal for Senate, Fred Spears Treasurer” printed on the mailer.

Secondly, the data from election night indicates those precincts where I did not do well. I will be walking those neighborhoods heavily. If you differ from me ideologically, please answer your door when I come knocking. I am an open-minded man and want to consider your views carefully. You may have some valuable insights that I’ll take with me to Topeka.

Lastly, I have established a regular schedule for listening sessions. On the third Saturday of every month, I will be at the Corner Bakery near 135th and Metcalf at 10am to hear your concerns. I hope to see you there.

Senate District 11 Resources:

Your support in the general election on November 8th is imperative. Please “like” my Facebook page or “follow” me on Twitter. The deadline to register to vote is October 18th.  My campaign is sending out applications for mail ballots if you would rather vote from the comfort of your own home. I will also answer any and all questions regarding registering to vote. I hope you’ll give me the opportunity to work with legislators of both parties to restore Kansas Common Sense to Topeka this November!

Very truly yours,

Republican Nominee for Kansas Senate, 11th District

The Scoop
August 16th – 95th Street and I-35 Bridge Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony
It was a grand day for Johnson County as the Department of Transportation unveiled the new bridge in Lenexa connecting I-35 to 95th Street. This exit will bring more travelers to Lenexa and make commutes faster. Investing in infrastructure is one of my top priorities, along with writing a new school funding formula and balancing the budget through revenue reform. KDOT used to maintain 1200 miles of roads. They now maintain 200. Projects have been delayed. It is my hope the Governor will reconsider reinvesting in our infrastructure.

August 17th – Lenexa Chamber of Commerce
On Wednesday, I drove to Lenexa to listen to Ed Eilert, County Chairman, and Steve Howe, the District Attorney, speak about their plans for a new Johnson County courthouse. Public safety is important to us as Johnson Countians, and this would be a good investment. I also saw my fellow Kansas Senate Republican nominee Dinah Sykes! Dinah is a fellow moderate Republican, and if you have the means, I would consider donating to her campaign. Dinah’s passion and work ethic are sorely needed in Topeka, and she worked unbelievably hard to oust the incumbent, a Brownback supporter, in the primary.

August 18th – Northeast Johnson County Chamber of Commerce
I firmly believe no one knows how to bring jobs to our communities better than the local chambers of commerce. They know the needs of the community, their members, and how to offer incentives. The state can aid them, but we should leave the bulk of job creation to localities. Johnson County knows this. That is why we continue to thrive. The speaker at this meeting was Dr. Jim Hinson, superintendent of Shawnee Mission school district. Dr. Hinson spoke on career readiness for students. Thank you, Dr. Hinson.

August 20th – Skubal for Senate Listening Session
My good friend, Jan Kessinger (Republican nominee for Kansas House District 20), and I kicked off my Listening Session series. We had over twenty, well-informed, engaged citizens (including a few who did not support us in the primary) who turned out to get to know their Republican nominees. Topics varied widely, from roads to school finance to how the primaries played out. My hope is that all of my Listening Sessions, held on the third Saturday of every month at 10am at the Corner Bakery, will be this well-attended.
