The Democratic Party is the party that helps people.

But the truth is, as long as Republicans have a super majority, they can ignore the wishes of Democrat voters.

They can obstruct:

  • Governor Kelly's budget that fully funds public education and freezes tuition at state colleges;

  • the elimination of the food tax - no matter the food choice;

  • the fully funded State Water Plan; and so much more.

If the Republican stranglehold on the Kansas legislature remains, policies that truly help Kansans will not be enacted. Instead we will continue to witness a legislature of obstruction, diversion, and power grab.

IT IS OUR DUTY TO VOTE FOR AND RE-ELECT DEMOCRATIC INCUMBENTS.

Re-elect:

Governor Laura Kelly, and Lt Governor David Toland

State Treasurer Lynn Rogers

District 66 Representative Sydney Carlin.

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS

VOTE NO! TO BOTH  CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS

 

Two constitutional amendments are on the ballot this election. You can read the entire texts of the proposed amendments on the website of the Kansas Secretary of State.

  • HCR 504 - Legislative Oversight of Administrative Rules and Regulations: this amendment would allow the legislature to be able, with a simple majority vote, to veto the governor and executive agencies under the governor. In short, this amendment seeks to shift away from the traditional separation of powers in government and give the legislature more unilateral power.

  • HCR 5022 - Election of County Sheriffs: this amendment would make it impossible for counties that currently elect their sheriff to adopt in the future a system like we have in Riley Co. wherein this position is appointed based upon merit. The amendment would also make it hard to remove from office a sheriff who is not abiding by the law or appropriately executing the duties of their office; county residents would have to push for a recall election or appeal to the state attorney general to take action. This amendment would allow any sheriff who is not serving the people who elected him or her or who would interfere in local government to remain in office.

This is a legislative grab for power!

Just vote NO!

JUDICIAL RETENTION

 

VOTE YES TO RETAINING ALL JUDGES ON THE KANSAS SUPREME COURT

 

Seven justices sit on the Kansas Supreme Court. Each was selected through a merit-based nomination process Kansas voters added to our state Constitution in 1958. The process involves the nine-member Supreme Court Nominating Commission, which reviews nominees, and the governor, who makes the appointments. Merit-based, rather than political, nominations keep Kansas courts fair and impartial. Fair courts need to be protected. 

 

If the justices are not retained, far-right politicians will implement their plans to change the merit-based nomination process into one of political appointees and pack the court with extremists who are ready to remove the constitutional rights of some individuals. For example, Kansans spoke loud and clear on Aug 2 about protecting reproductive rights, yet some politicians are ready to undercut the will of the people to gain the votes of special interest groups. 

 

Vote Yes to retaining the Supreme Court Justices to keep politics and political influence out of our courts. 

Protect your constitutional rights, retain:

Daniel Biles
Marla Luckert
Evelyn Z. Wilson
Caleb Stegall
Keynen Wall
Melissa Standridge
