If you want to know where Representative Greg Lewis stands on the significant issues facing Kansas, such as adequately funding state services, then you only have to visit his website, http://www.lewisforkansas.com. If you call him, he may very well call you back within a day or two, like he returned my call recently when I left a message for him regarding the special legislative session.
If you want to learn where Greg's opponent stands on the issues, good luck. There is not a lot out there on Greg's primary candidate opponent, who hails from Ellinwood. He has no website to explain his beliefs and simply claims to be more conservative than Representative Lewis.
If you want to vote for a political ideology rather than what is best for Kansas, then the Ellinwood businessman might be your best choice. The sad results of pressing forward with a political philosophy/ideology instead of what is best for Kansas are all too evident today.
When I consider Greg Lewis' opponent in the upcoming primary election, I think of the invisible man: he's out there, somewhere, and then, poof, he suddenly appears, scaring everyone half to death. If you vote for the invisible candidate, you may unfortunately find out too late who and what he represents. Incidentally, Greg's opponent recently resigned from a New York firm, Envisage Information Systems, so he may be a bit out of touch with Kansas values.
As for me and my house, we are voting for the farmer from the St. John area. We need someone like Greg to continue to represent the best interests of the people in our district. Greg is not afraid to call a spade a spade, which may not make him overly popular with the powers that be in Topeka. To have a truly representative form of government, however, we need truth-speakers who keep their eyes open to what's going in state government.
As a registered independent, I will soon be changing my registration, temporarily, to Republican so I can vote for Greg in the Primary election on August 2. I urge all my fellow independents, as well as all registered Republicans, to do likewise. Incidentally, you may change your unaffiliated registration to Republican by visiting the county clerk's office prior to Election Day. You may also change your unaffiliated party registration to Republican at the polls on the day of the election.
