Laura Kelly’s 13 years in the state legislature has helped prepare her to be governor. As the minority leader of the state’s Ways and Means Committee, Kelly has fought for fiscal sanity, all along standing as a staunch opponent to former Gov. Sam Brownback’s disastrous tax policy.

(The only tax cut on Kelly’s radar is that on food.)

Because of Kelly’s leadership, the legislature’s reversal of his tax cut “experiment” has helped the state’s economy to regain ground. Our credit rating has climbed from “negative” to “stable,” in the last six months, according to both the S&P and Moody’s financial institutions who credited our renewed focus on fiscal responsibility.
