In a letter sent to twelve newspapers and obtained by Mid Kansas Online, McPherson Mayor Tom Brown expressed his support for 35th District Senate candidate Rick Wilborn.
Here is the text of his letter.
"I am writing to express my support for Rick Wilborn, candidate for the Kansas Senate. He is a common sense, conservative Republican. He will pursue elimination of wasteful spending and unnecessary tax burdens. We need experienced leadership with networking skills to help our citizens, students, educators, entrepreneurs, and employers prosper and have economic stability. Rick has served the community and our region of Kansas through committees and consulting on various issues. During my service as an elected official the past five years, I have appreciated his assistance in making state and federal officials aware of our local needs and concerns. Rick has the endorsement of Kansans for Life and supports pro-life policies to protect the unborn. The citizens of the 35th District will be well served with Rick Wilborn as their state senator."
