As we move into another scorching Kansas summer, the midterm election campaigns are heating up as well. Many candidates make claims and promises, but can they back them up?
I know somebody who can; my friend of more than 40 years, Rick Wilborn.
I am proud to endorse Rick for Kansas Senate District 35. A lifelong conservative and former chairman of the McPherson County Republican Party, Rick is the most qualified candidate for the District 35 seat in our state senate.
Rick, a founder of the extremely successful McPherson Crime Stoppers Program, has been a staunch supporter of law enforcement in McPherson county. Rick is an honest, top-shelf man who supports the traditional family values that are dear to our hearts in the heartland. He will work diligently as a state senator to protect our way of life in rural Kansas.
Additionally, Rick will extend tireless energy toward two things that I think you are probably as interested as I am to see happen in Kansas; the slashing of wasteful spending and the reduction of taxes.
Rick Wilborn deserves my vote—and yours too. Please vote with me on Aug. 5 for Rick Wilborn for Kansas State Senate District 35.
— Larry G. Powell, Sheriff of McPherson County
