Letter to the editor: Wagle should know

To the editor:

I’m writing to express my appreciation for Kansas Senate President Susan Wagle’s assessment of Gov. Laura Kelly’s recent decision to veto an extra $51 million payment to the beleaguered Kansas Public Employees Retirement System. (“Kansas governor signs budget but vetoes pension payment,” May 20.)

In doing so, Wagle said, the governor had “turned her back” on teachers and state employees.

This is refreshing! Unlike those politicians whose knowledge is limited to what the wine-and-dine lobbyists tell them, Wagle is a genuine expert. I mean, gosh, who knows more about ignoring the needs of teachers and state employees?

I can’t think of anyone.

Dave Ranney,
