On Local Issues: Plan future 3 millionth Kansan: education, farming, & water

The 2.9 million souls that call Kansas home cherish a way of life that honors family, values education and embraces positive change. In fact, by the end of this decade, for the first time in our history, Kansas' population will surpass three million people. When that three millionth Kansan is born, what kind of state will we have built for her?

On Principles & Values: Our dependence is not on Big Government but on a Big God

Today, the nation dithers while the path forward seems uncharted. America can't decide which way to go. Yet, the path forward is clear. Kansas is leading an American Renaissance--a return to the virtue and character that built this state and a great nation in the first place.

The path is NOT uncharted. We know the way. We must re-drill the wells that gave us life the first time. They will refresh and renew us again!

We rebuild our families so that [future] Kansans can know the value of a family---none of which is perfect. Yet we all aspire in them to be better, virtuous, just and righteous... that we might be blessed and a blessing.

Our dependence is not on Big Government but on a Big God that loves us and lives within us. Our future is bright. Our renaissance is assured IF we move from dithering to action. Which way to choose? We know the way. God wrote it in our hearts.
