Meet The Candidate – Clifton Beck (House Dist. 101)

clifton-beck“I am seeking election to the House because I am frustrated with the legislation coming out of Topeka and the effect it is having on the people of our state.

I have lived many different walks of life and experienced various economic conditions from large urban environments to smaller rural communities. These experiences have afforded me the opportunity to work with a broad spectrum of political, personal, and economic views.”

Meet The Candidate – Glen Shafer (House Dist. 100)

Meet The Candidate – Stan Reeser (House Dist. 97)

stan-reeserStan Reeser: A husband, father, and grandfather who has been a homeowner in the 97th district for over 30 years.

“While serving on the Wichita City Council I advocated against raising the property tax mill and I was one of the first to advocate for community policing, which I believe reduce the crime rate without damaging the overall city budget. I also had numerous paving and drainage projects completed that had been “sitting” in the City’s Capital Improvement Projects – some as long as 10 years. I also helped save various historical landmarks most notably the John Mack Bridge.”

Meet The Candidate – Rep. Brandon Whipple (House Dist. 96)
