I’m a Republican. I’ve always been a Republican. Why should I vote for you?
I can respect that, but I don't think two labels (Democrat and Republican) can adequately fit the ideology of each individual. I was a Republican for 26 years until it became clear to me neither party was more fiscally responsible than the other. I am fiscally conservative. Working in finance roles and as a Certified Public Account in industry trained me to pay attention to the numbers.
The Kansas Legislature has been controlled in both houses by Republicans for over 32 years, often with a trifecta which has included the Governor, yet there are clearly gaps where Kansas could offer greater opportunities for all.
I decided to run for office because I believe we’ve missed out on so many opportunities for too long – especially in South Central Kansas. When elected, I pledge to work on: expanding Kansas' business environment; refining our healthcare systems; improving our schools; and supporting Kansas farmers and the Ag industry – all while working to ensure costs are controlled and taxes are fair for everyone. Heck – I already pledge to do that now, but I can be more effective at working for all of us once I’m in office.
We may not agree with every issue, but I hope you will follow me on Facebook at ‘Join Jeff For a Better Kansas,’ on Twitter at @JeffStroberg, and on the web at jeffstroberg.com where you can join our mailing list & check on upcoming events . I value your perspective on Kansas’ issues and want to hear from you how we can work together to make Kansas better for us all.
