— Commerce Secretary Pat George says that ending the Kansas Main Street program doesn't mean rural communities will lose support from the state agency.

George tells a legislative budget committee on Wednesday that the program was eliminated through a restructuring of the agency announced this summer. He said a loss of federal funds for programs necessitated changes.

Main Street had 25 participants that received state support for recruiting and retaining jobs. George says 95 percent of the funding came from local sources and that many of those efforts will continue at the local level. He says the state will still support the communities in some fashion as they continue the program on their own.

George said 18 jobs were eliminated in the Department of Commerce as part of the restructuring

Well, this is what happens to the rural supporters of the " Christian-Wrong "; i.e. the Kochs & their man " Brownie " . Can you say " PSEUDO " ? Today it's " the hell with your town ". Tomorrow it will be " the hell with you ". This is what wolves, in sheeps clothing do .

What a joke. The state will still support the communities in some fashion as they continue the program on their on. Right brownie will continue to lie that he is helping everyone in the state, The only one's this liar is supporting are the 1% that he wants to be a part of.
