Newton Board of Education member Tim Hodge was not at the school district community planning meeting Tuesday night — he instead was at a meeting of the Harvey County Democratic Party at the courthouse.

Yard signs are here! You've probably noticed them popping up across town today. If you'd like a sign, and you don't have one, drop us a private message with the address. We'll try to have most of them out today, but we may have to finish up tomorrow. Thanks, Newton, for your support. I ask for your vote November 6. ... See MoreSee Less
Steve Kelly and the Republican party have sent two postcards attacking me as a greedy trial lawyer for trying to help Kansans ensure they are not bankrupted when tragedy strikes. As a result of personally witnessing a family tragedy, I tried to increase Kansas vehicle liability limits to help families affected. I also offered amendments to require those convicted of DUI driving to carry higher liability insurance ($100,000/$300,000 to be exact.) Each time, the GOP majority sided with reckless and drunk drivers. Drunk drivers cause devastating car crashes everyday bringing tragedy to innocent families. These risky drivers cause catastrophic injuries and steal lives from their victims. Don't let Steve Kelly and the GOP fool you into thinking their coddling of drunk drivers is anything but wrong. ...

Ending the failed Brownback experiment was a great day for Kansas. It was unfair when Brownback raised sales and property taxes on working Kansans while billionaire business owners paid no income taxes. Working Kansans should not pay more so that billionaires could pay nothing in state income taxes.
Now it’s time to eliminate the sales tax on groceries, which is the highest in the nation. Hard-working Kansans deserve a break!
I appreciate your continued support and ask for your vote on Nov. 6. ... See MoreSee Less
I’m proud to be the product of Kansas public schools. My wife, Mary Ellen teaches special needs students and my children attend Newton Public Schools. I understand how vital good schools are to our community and our state. The failed Brownback experiment harmed our schools and our children. We must do better. I will continue to fight to ensure that our schools are adequatelly funded and our children receive the education they deserve.

We've handed out over 5,000 of these and we need to order more to get to the finish line. The Brownback machine is gearing up to try to defeat us this November, so I'm asking for a little more help. Can you pitch in a few dollars to help us order more palm cards and yard signs? If we all push a little harder, we'll defeat the Brownback allies. I promise to always fight for you, not the billionaires. I really appreciate your help and support. timhodgeks.com/donate/... See MoreSee Less
Kansans are still suffering from the failed Brownback experiment that cost our state dearly. We had to act to bring jobs back to our communities.
To help our communities, I authored a jobs tax credit that would help small business add jobs. We restored the Child Care Tax Credit, the Mortgage Interest and Medical deduction to help working families, and money is finally flowing to repair our roads and bridges. The economy is finally growing, but we must do more. We must eliminate the sales tax on groceries, we must address rising property taxes and we must do more to help struggling Kansas families, farmers and businesses.
There is much left to be done, thanks you for your continued support and I ask for your vote on November 6th. ... See MoreSee Less
