"Laura Kelly grew up in a career military family where she learned the importance of service, integrity and accountability. She has made it her life’s work to fight for children and families on the job, in her community, and as a four-term state senator.
The Brownback tax experiment taught Kansans first hand that it takes more than massive tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations to create jobs. After years of watching the Governor jump from one self-inflicted fiscal crisis to the next, Laura believes we need a new approach to jumpstart job growth in a rapidly changing economy. She has long supported traditional engines that drive prosperity: public schools, job training, and infrastructure, but she also believes Kansas leaders must think more like entrepreneurs and less like politicians. We must innovate and make creative, strategic investments that plan for the jobs of the future."
