As we near the moment 100 years ago when the guns fell silent, and peace fell on a war-torn Europe, let us remember the fallen of the Great War and those who have given their all today for our tomorrows ever since. Let us remember the sacrifice of everyone who has donned the uniform of this nation so that we can continue to enjoy the freedoms we all hold dear. Let us commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, by praying for our nation and for peace and that God continues to bless our great country. ... See MoreSee Less
First of all, from the bottom of my heart. Thank You. For the thoughts, prayers, and the recent contributions. I will always be eternally grateful for you. We have an update in the election. Today they counted the advance ballots that arrived on election day and up until this morning, providing they were postmarked by election day. There were 225 votes counted and we won 161 to 60, erasing our 84 vote deficit and taking a 17 vote lead. Tuesday, they will count the 281 provisional ballots, many of which were from friends who misplaced their advance ballot. We are very optimistic that our lead not only holds, but expands on Tuesday, and we'll have won this campaign. I really can't thank all of you enough, but will never forget you or let you down. God Bless you all! ... See MoreSee Less
I accidentally deleted yesterdays post. I want to let you know where we are. We are down 84 votes, with about 500 more to count. Most of those ballots are mail in ballots from the voters we worked with throughout the summer. We are extremely confident that we will prevail. However, we may be facing a re-count and other measures that will cost us more money. We were bombarded with about $150,000 from the GOP to elect my opponent. I spent everything we had to ensure victory. I hate to even ask, knowing all the sacrifices you've endured to help me, but we need a little more to get across the finish line. I am humbled by your support and honored to be your state representative. God Bless, and be safe.
Thank you District 72! We’ve knocked 6,000+ doors, registered close to 1,000 new voters, helped 2,200+ voters get advance ballots and met thousands of wonderful people. I am so blessed and humbled to have your support. I ask for your vote on November 6. ... See MoreSee Less
It's clear from the scary robocalls and reams of mail that the Koch brothers want to buy, their friend and Brownback ally, Steve Kelly, a seat in the legislature. I know it's because I helped end the Brownback experiment that eliminated their income tax exemption. I guess dropping $100,000 on my race is a small price to pay to have their income exempted from taxes. I'm proud that I ended their tax exemption. I'm proud that I restored your child-care tax credit and I will fight in Topeka to eliminate your sales tax on groceries. I'm fighting for you! ... See MoreSee Less
