Kansas 73rd District House candidate Democrat Von Peterson had the opportunity to speak to those assembled for a rally for First District congressional candidate Jim Sherow on Monday night at the Lakeside Cabin in McPherson. Following that appearance, Mid Kansas Online had a chance to talk to Mr. Peterson again about why he is running for the Kansas House seat.
Peterson said, "When you help your neighbor, and you don't expect anything in return, and then they turn around and do that back to you at another point, that's what Kansans do. We have gotten away from doing that."
Peterson is running against 73rd District Republican incumbent Representative Les Mason in the November 4th general election.
