In a letter addressed to Sen. Julia Lynn, chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, board members said the Chamber, fully supports Toland and We are looking forward to Davids confirmation and our future work together to further improve and grow southeast Kansas.
The letter also addresses the boards decision to stand apart from that of their president, Shilo Eggers, who in a separate letter to Sen. Lynn voiced her opposition to Toland.
