"Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree." - Martin Luther King Jr.Some days it seems like our world is falling to pieces. The economy, the war and other concerns we face are daunting. There is always hope that with change in leadership, there will be a better future. I am running for the U.S. Congress in Kansas' 4th District because tough decisions have to be made in Washington if we are to keep this nation strong. My state deserves strong representation if we are to keep our government accessible to all of its citizens. Too many Kansans can’t get health care at a reasonable price. Gas and grocery prices are taking huge chunks out of their pocketbooks. College tuition gets higher every year. The economic futures of too many families are gravely in doubt. I am running for Congress because our children and our grandchildren deserve a better future. It is an honor to represent Kansans. If you live in Kansas' 4th District, I will be grateful to have your vote today.
