Willoughby for Kansas

7 Oct

I am John Wallace Willoughby, and I am running for the Kansas 100th House District seat.

The key issues in this race are the basic ones of truth, values, justice.

Each Kansas legislator is charged with doing what is best for everyone in Kansas, for the future of Kansas. That future is the children of Kansas, their children, their children’s children, countless children not yet born. Each Kansas legislator must seek the truth and values that will enable the future of every child in Kansas to be the best it can be. This means that each child must have the best education possible for that child, with no discrimination in favor of children from wealthy families or socially prominent families. It means that each child must have the best protection from harm possible for that child, with no discrimination in favor of children from wealthy families or socially prominent families. It means that each child should have the best health services possible for that child, with no discrimination in favor of children from wealthy families or socially prominent families. It means that each child should have the best opportunity for work possible for that child, with no discrimination in favor of children from wealthy families or socially prominent families.

In order to work towards the best for every child, each Kansas legislator will have to consider a broad range of issues which impact the education, safety, health, and work opportunities for children. Some of these issues are taxes, budgets, employment, energy, and transportation. All of these issues involve rigorous attempts to discover the truth, the values, and the justice which might best lead to a sustainable future for the children of Kansas.

Subsequent posts to this blog will address these issues one by one. I hope that readers will comment on this posting and all later ones, so that we may have a conversation about what is best for all Kansas legislators to do, not just those in the 100th District.
