LETTERS: Experience counts

To the editor:

When heading to the polls Tuesday, local residents should choose the candidate with the right experience to represent the 17th Senate District. I believe that candidate is Jerry Karr.

Jerry has spent his entire life selflessly serving our community. In the policy arena, Jerry served as our state Senator for nearly two decades, as co-chairman of the Governor’s Task Force on Wind Power in Kansas, as a member of the Kansas Commission on Rural Policy, and an appointee to the Kansas Inc. Economic Development Strategic Planning Committee.

In addition, Jerry has helped run a number of community service organizations including the Salvation Army Board, Camp Wood YMCA, and the local Kiwanis.

There isn’t a person more qualified or with more experience than Jerry Karr to represent our needs in the state Senate.

On Tuesday, vote for Jerry Karr. Experience does matter.
