Thank you for your interest in my candidacy for the Kansas House. On August 4th, I won the Republican Primary and look forward to earning your support in the General Election on November 3rd.

Johnson County is a great place to live. It is home to welcoming, hard-working, caring people, great neighborhoods and parks, and a wide variety of restaurants and shopping. It is a thriving residential and business community known as the economic engine of Kansas and is consistently recognized as one of the best places in the country to live and raise a family.

Historically, our political leaders have supported this growth and prosperity via prudent policies that respect businesses and taxpayers. However, we must be vigilant in maintaining our way of life. Increasingly, there are voices more promoting the size and scope of government rather than the growth and prosperity of business and people. From imposing restrictions on the ability for businesses to start and grow to an increasing burden on the people through higher taxes, they are imposing policies that statistics show are causing people to leave our great state.

I believe there is a better way. I believe in measuring success not by the number of people on government programs, but by the number that are independent and self-supporting. I believe in removing barriers to business formation, which in turn leads to more jobs. I believe in ensuring that our constitutional rights are preserved, and that local control is respected. I believe in fiscal responsibility and the importance of being wise stewards of taxpayer dollars.

Our economy is now just beginning to re-open, and over the next year, the need to rebuild our economy will be a major focus for those in elected office. We need strong common-sense leaders setting the direction. I am committed to policies that get our state back on its feet and prosperous once again.

I ask for your trust and your vote to serve as your State Representative.
