City manager forecasting increase in city's general fund property tax rate for 2014 budget

Hello, I am a teacher...and I am a thug

Thanks so much for your letter. I am a retired teacher and have experienced exactly what you are saying. There are many that don't get it and never will. They will continue to vote against their own self interests out of fear and ignorance.

Letter: GOP concern

As a democrat I have always appreciated Sandy Praeger's work and integrity. It's a shame we can't find more people on both sides with her compassion for all Kansans.
