I am writing in support for Barbara Bunting as State Representative for the 72nd District. I had the opportunity to work with Barbara on School Board for USD 373. During those eight years, I saw Barbara become a very knowledgeable school board member and President of the Kansas School Board Association. She excels because of her motivation to do the best job possible for our school district and for the students of Kansas. When Barbara makes a commitment to a project, she reads, researches, makes phone calls and seeks out the best way to educate herself so that she knows all the facts and is best prepared for discussion and to make decisions. I know that if Barbara becomes a State Representative, she will confidently meet these new challenges with her energetic work ethic and do her best for the people of Kansas. Please join me by voting for Barbara Bunting for State Representative in the primary election on August 5, 2014.
