First off, early voting is going on at Hilltop campus and advance ballots went out on October 19th. I urge you to vote early or by mail for several reasons. First, you will stop getting mailers and phone calls. Second, Johnson County is expected to break voter turnout records this year. Beat the lines and vote early. And finally, this election is nothing less than the most important one in Kansas’ history. Your vote could decide if we continue on a path of destruction, or get back to our roots of fully-funded schools, no debt or borrowed money, and some of the best roads in the country. Do yourself a favor: vote early or by mail.
I want to say a few words about the retention of the Kansas Supreme Court justices. Millions of dollars are being spent by ultraconservative interest groups to ensure most of our justices do not keep their jobs. If you vote them out, Governor Brownback gets to appoint their replacements. Does that seem fair to you? I’m sure the Kansas City Chiefs would like to pick their own referees too. It’s the same concept, just with MUCH bigger repercussions. I urge you to vote to retain our current justices.
Just as July was busy during the primary season, October has proved to be every bit as hectic. However, as I’ve said before, I am at my happiest when I am busy. We’ve been making the rounds to nearly all the neighborhoods we covered during our primary. We’re continuing our bipartisan efforts to recruit voters of both parties to vote for us. I am running to represent EVERYONE as your state senator, and I will take anyone’s call, email, or questions.
I ask for your support in the general election on November 8th. Please “like” my Facebook page or “follow” me on Twitter. 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
