The June 1st filing deadline came and went, and my opponent is set in stone. Jeff Melcher is the best opponent I could have hoped for. His rubber stamp for Governor Brownback’s failed tax policies, cuts to services, usurpation of local control and his failed leadership I’m running to stop. His main contributors (besides his own hefty checkbook), are Wichita and KCMO billionaires, and they are sure to flood your mailboxes with twisted facts and lame excuses. If you want the mailers to stop, apply to vote at home. Your ballot will be in your mailbox by July 15 and once you turn it in, campaigns remove you from their mailing lists!
We have walked thousands of doors in the last few weeks and if you haven’t seen me, you will soon. You have likely heard the legislature has been called back to Topeka to fix (again) the school funding formula. Keep an eye on our Senator’s votes and watch here for updates. and Stand Up Blue Valley also does a great job of myth-busting on their Facebook page. To be sure, the legislature has hard decisions to make next year, but spending three terms on the Overland Park City Council has been excellent training.
We don’t get better representation without YOU! I need you to get out and VOTE on August 2nd or before by mail ballot - reply to this email and I will send you a form to vote at home, or click here if you would rather print your own! Follow my campaign for updates by “liking” my Facebook page, “following” me on Twitter @JohnSkubal, or reading my new “Issues” page on www.JohnSkubal.com.
