How can we bring jobs to rural Kansas? How can we make college more affordable? How can we improve access to healthcare? How can we improve U.S. 69?
Five of the eight Democratic candidates for governor met in Iola Tuesday night to answer these and other questions in advance of the Aug. 7 primary. The forum, which presented the group with six rounds of questions, was hosted by the Allen County Democratic Party.
Former Wichita mayor Carl Brewer, Salina salesman Robert Klingenberg, and former FBI agent Michael Tab-man did not attend the forum, which drew an audience of about 80 spectators from all parts of southeast Kansas.
