As Professor Emeritus of Education in having trained teachers for public and private schools, I truly believe that Barbara Bunting is much needed in the Kansas legislature in Topeka. My wife Mary Ediger, a retired long time public school teacher, also fully endorses Barbara Bunting, as Representative for the 72nd District in Kansas in the August 5 primary. Barbara is indeed highly qualified for that position.

She has tremendous interest in the welfare of school age children, having served well in the following, among other ways:

* member of the Board of Education of the Newton Public Schools

* served as the President of the Kansas Association of School Boards

* attended professional meetings in education

* is very knowledgeable about supporting public school education, as well as issues in society.

Her enthusiasm and interest in the public schools resonates well with the wide support she has received in society. It takes high quality schools to encourage businesses, families, and individuals to locate in the Newton community. Barbara's family is associated with Bunting Magnetics, an ever growing and expanding industry.
