Democrat Josh Svaty says Kansans want a problem solver as their next governor. That’s the takeaway message from his just-concluded tour of all 105 Kansas counties.
Svaty, a 37-year-old former legislator who headed the state Department of Agriculture under former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, says Kansans recognize that state government isn’t working as well as it used to. He says they vented about budget cuts, canceled road projects and diminished services under the state’s privatized Medicaid program.
