This is the time for a voice of moderation in the Kansas political scene. Barbara Bunting, candidate for the Kansas 72nd District, is that voice. She has worked tirelessly as a leader for the Newton Board of Education, has been a longtime advocate for the mentally ill, and has given many hours to her community and her church. Barbara has a thorough understanding of our state and national constitutions and will consistently follow the system of checks and balances as a member of the state legislature. She will represent, ‘all Kansans.’ Please vote Barbara Bunting in the Republican primary on August 5.
