While following candidates’ campaigns for Kansas governor, what issues will be important to you?
Asked at Hy-Vee on June 4, 2002
“Mostly the schools, because I work in education, and I think it’s really important for kids to have opportunities. The opportunities they’ve had in the past have been getting cut.”
“The taxes, for one thing, and school funding. I don’t want a tax increase, and I hope to get schools going.”
“Schools and school funding, both K-12 and university funding. I think it’s important to the future of our state in the long-term.”
“I would say taxes and school issues. There is a state deficit in terms of funding. I don’t think they need to raise taxes. … They need to find another way to improve school budgets.”
