Issues

 


  • Independent to represent the people not a party

    • Kansans deserve representatives who look out for their best interests, not those of any political party
  • Schools: Kansas school funding must be equitable and adequate
    • Education is an investment in our future; social ills correlate with low educational achievement, and great schools attract businesses and quality workers
  • Budget: Kansans deserve responsible budgetary policy and outcomes
    • Kansas current budget problems are directly attributable to taking 330,000 LLCs “off the books”
    • Kansas’s credit rating downgrades are costly proof of irresponsible fiscal policies
    • Facts and fiscal evidence are the basis for budgetary policy, not wishful thinking and willful ignorance
  • Infrastructure: Kansas roads need to be maintained to avoid costly repairs later
    • taking money from long term investment is simply “kicking the can down the road” so the bills come due under someone else’s watch
  • Health care: taking money from KanCare is morally wrong and fiscally unsustainable
    • KanCare spending didn’t create the budget hole, bad tax policy did
  • Taxes: the largest tax increase in state history is not the solution to a tax error made in 2012
    • Largest tax increase in Kansas history, $471M in 2015, on groceries and working people
