Rep. Kent Thompson

Every time that Rep. Kent Thompson holds up his hand to defend the Kansas Constitution, its import weighs heavily on his conscience.

Monday’s swearing-in ceremony to signal the start of the 2019 legislative session will be no different, though serving under a Democratic governor will present new challenges.

“I’m excited about Monday, but I’m going to withhold judgment for the first month,” Thompson said about Gov.-elect Laura Kelly’s agenda. As a Republican, “I’m going to make the best of it. And the power of positive thinking is a powerful thing.”
