What is your plan to deal with the Kansas Budget?
Cutting funding to programs to finance Gov Brownback’s 2012 Tax Plan is clearly not working! It’s time that ALL businesses pay their fair share of taxes and invest in our state! I would begin with that and work across the aisle to find out where investments are best spent so that we have both a short-term, as well as a long-term plan to get our state out of debt, return our credit rating, and adequately fund our public education.
What kind of changes do you support in rewriting the school funding formula? Do you support additional funding for Kansas schools?
Absolutely! The Kansas Supreme Court has already ruled that the state is not adequately funding our public schools. We have to STOP playing partisan politics with our children’s education and not just simply “adequately” fund, but provide the best education we possibly can for our children. I mean, this is our FUTURE we’re talking about here. ~”Our success should be measured by the success of our children.” Hillary Clinton
What is your number one priority for the upcoming legislative session and how do you plan to address it?
There are so many priorities our legislators should be focusing on January 9th, however if I’m elected to represent District 30 in the Kansas Senate I will be focusing on the top three issues voters have discussed with me on the doorstep time and time again. Those three issues are, of course, what many voters feel is an unfair tax system, adequately funding education, and the expansion of Kancare. It is absolutely imperative that we accept those federal dollars and reach the thousands of Kansans that are currently falling between the income gaps. People lives are literally depending on it and I’ve talked to many in my district. Again, it’s going to take leadership and working across the political lines, reaching out in order to educate the Health and Human services committee to the many benefits Kansas could be receiving! The expansion would provide at least 563 new jobs and $90 million dollars in Sedgwick County alone without raising taxes a penny! It’s tax money every citizen has already paid to the federal government and they want to give it back to us! Not accepting it and allowing Kansans to go without healthcare is absolutely inexcusable!
