To have had the opportunity to have Sue in my life as an educator, mentor and friend is truly remarkable and nothing short of profound. Her passion is second to none and her voice for Kansas would be unmatched. It would be a privilege and inspiration to have her represent this great state.

As you may know, I announced my candidacy for Kansas State House of Representatives in June 2012. Throughout my lifetime in this district I have served many roles. I come from a farming background, growing up on a farm in McPherson County, which I now own. My husband and I served the role of small business owner for the twenty years that we operated Sportsman’s Supply. As a licensed Realtor I have been able to maintain my connection to small business interests. I have also had the distinct honor of serving as an educator for thirty-eight years, teaching at both the high school and university level. Through this role I learned the value of public service and civic virtue, now I look to take on a new role as your representative in the Kansas State House of Representatives.
Beginning with my rural Kansas upbringing I learned the value of honesty, integrity, and hard work. Instilled with these values I began a career of public service that would allow me to impart these values to a new generation. The future has always been my focus and I look forward to the opportunity to lead Kansas into hers. As your representative I promise to continue the tradition of responsible leadership, listening to the people, and common sense solutions. I pledge to always put the interests of Kansans first.
I look forward to a campaign focused on the issues important to all Kansans, devoid of petty bickering. The difficult times that we face require that we rise above petty arguments and commit to rolling up our sleeves to achieve the goals that are necessary to restore prosperity to our people, tackle the difficult challenges, and do what is right. I am excited to meet and discuss the issues with the folks I call my neighbor, not my constituent.
