As a member of this community and a resident of our district, I, like many others here, do not believe that our values and priorities are being accurately represented in the Statehouse. I am running to represent District 99 to ensure our community’s concerns are both heard and acted upon. As a civically connected member of our community, a wife, a mom, and a teacher, I believe life in the Heartland is enriched for everyone when we give our children a quality education, provide greater accessibility to healthcare, and serve as protective stewards to the children of our communities.
Public Education is the Foundation of a Thriving Community
Champion of Public Education and Teachers
Kristi is a fourth generation public school teacher. In her decades-long career in education, she has taught in both parochial and public schools. She appreciates the benefits both institutions bring to our community. She believes stable, securely funded public schools that are equipped to meet the needs of all of our students and prepare our children to move on either to enter the workforce or pursue a higher education are essential to maintaining a thriving and desirable community. Programs that are designed to divert and reallocate funding away from public schools fail to meet the needs of our students and support our teachers and erode the quality of living within our community.
Healthy People Build a Healthy Economy
Preventative Care for More Makes Sense
Kristi supports Medicaid expansion to keep more Kansans healthy. Healthy people are productive. Productive people contribute to our economy.
Healthy people = Healthy economy.
Responsive to the Needs of Our Military Families
A Voice for Those Who Serve
Kristi is a Navy Mom and the sister of an Army Reservist. She understands the stress of deployment imposes upon our military service personnel and their families. She also understands second and third order effects of deployment that are consequences those that serve face that affect their ability to get and keep employment and the health issues unique to deployed service members. In Topeka, Kristi will serve as an advocate for our Kansas military families.

I hope to speak to you in person when I'm out knocking on doors or maybe I will meet you at an event, but if I miss you....here is my request....
It's a fact that it takes money to run a campaign. I pledge to run a cost-efficient operation. With your support, I will be able to purchase palm cards, limited yard signs, postcards and thank you notes, which are just a few of the items that will help propel the momentum of turning out the vote in Kansas House District 99. I think the effective promotional asset, however, is YOU.... so, please, network, get the word out via social media and in person that for 2018, HD 99 has a candidate that wants to work for all.
