LETTERS: Penny tax was worth it

To the editor:

We have about one week left to listen to all the political ads on television and receive almost hourly phone calls and more mail than usual.

I don’t think that we have ever experienced an election such as this. It is hard to know what to believe and who to vote for with all the negative campaigning. Nevertheless, we do need to vote.

The only easy vote for us is in the 70th District Kansas House of Representatives race. We will be voting for Bob Brookens.

We support Bob in voting for the temporary one-penny sales tax increase for many reasons. If this had not occurred we would have seen property taxes increased.

Schools are struggling, and the struggles are genuine. Our children and grandchildren are worth a good education.

We have personally known Bob and his family for more than 25 years. Bob is a Christian man who puts God and his family first. His character every day is one of caring, fairness, honesty, and doing the right thing in all circumstances.

He has been keeping us in the 70th District informed of what is going on in Topeka and seeking the advice of all of us every step of the way. In our opinion, Bob is the best person to represent us in Topeka.

Gordon and Shirley Groening
