  • To the editor:
    It is my pleasure to be a member of the Women for Brownback Coalition supporting
    Gov. Sam Brownback’s run for a second term. I have had the pleasure of knowing
    Governor Brownback since he served as our U.S. Senator. Throughout the
    course of many years, I’ve observed a tireless and dedicated public servant, a man of
    utmost integrity, an individual who continually strives to do the right thing for the
    betterment of those he represents.  
    When Governor Brownback first was elected governor, he recognized that a declining
    population in Kansas required an urgent call to action. He set in motion a number of
    objectives that he designed to ultimately provide greater long-term prosperity for our
    state. The Brownback administration has lowered taxes and added jobs with increased
    average pay, all of which has helped to drop our unemployment rate.
    While the final analysis is still yet to be determined, it took a great deal of courage to put forth this plan and have it adopted amidst tremendous media scrutiny and partisan objection.  
    Another area where Governor Brownback has shown tremendous leadership in our
    greater Kansas City region has been with his efforts to work with Missouri Gov. Jay
    Nixon on the “Border War” issue. This is a complex issue and remains a work in
    progress. Governor Brownback has appointed a task force of local elected officials and
    Chamber executives to strategize on the best resolution for all involved, ensuring
    continued growth not just for our state but for the larger region.
    One of Governor Brownback’s greatest strengths is his willingness to meet with his
    constituents and listen to their areas of concern. He truly cares about people and is not
    afraid to demonstrate his compassion. It is also encouraging that he surrounds himself
    with talented and dedicated professionals who share his extraordinary work ethic. With a
    keen eye on success for all Kansans, he provides a passionate vision that should reap a
    bright future for each of us.  
    I hope you will join me in supporting Gov. Sam Brownback for a second term as our
    governor.
    Thank you very much.
     
    Peggy J. Dunn
    Mayor, city of Leawood
