What is your plan to deal with the Kansas Budget?

It’s time for Kansas to move forward in a new direction with new ideas. Grow the economy, create jobs and bring new businesses to Kansas. Repeal the tax experiment that has created the fiscal crisis, invest in education and expand Medicaid.

What kind of changes do you support in rewriting the school funding formula? Do you support additional funding for Kansas schools?

Funding formula must address the needs of individual children; focus funding on the classroom and teacher pay, and maintain local control of schools.

What is your number one priority for the upcoming legislative session and how do you plan to address it?

Moving Kansas forward in a new direction with new ideas. Growing our economy, creating jobs and bringing new businesses to Kansas. Repeal the tax experiment, balance our budget and stop the mismanagement of the economy.
