Dear editor:

I want to endorse Dennis McKinney to continue as Kansas State Treasurer. Dennis is highly qualified for the job and has done well since his appointment, budgeting his own office.

Holding an MBA and serving several years in local and state government provides a great background for Dennis to be a hands on, knowledgeable and pro-active state treasurer.

As minority leader in the House of Representatives, Dennis stood for what was right for all Kansans and never hesitated to work in a bi-partisan manner to achieve outcomes that would benefit Kansans.

The enthusiasm he has for his job as state treasurer is reflected in the way he speaks of what his office is trying to accomplish.

Mr. Estes, his opponent, is a very nice man and I think has done a good job on the county level, but at this time, finances being what they are, I believe we need someone with more state-wide experience.

At a forum at Fort Scott Oct. 21, candidates were given the opportunity to ask a question of their opponent (in order to “liven things up”). Dennis McKinney, Ron Estes and Bob Grant were the ones who declined to ask a question meant to attack or put their opponent on the spot.

This speaks volumes to me of the character of these men. Please consider Dennis McKinney when you vote November 2.
