GARNETT Political differences took a back seat Monday night in Garnett as a crowd of roughly 100 people met at Anderson County Junior – Senior High School to visit with Lieutenant Governor Lynn Rogers as part of a Summer Listening Tour which encourages people to come together and discuss quality of life in rural Kansas.
The Office of Rural Prosperity was formed earlier this year by the administration of Gov. Laura Kelly, in part to give rural communities a seat at the table.
