I would like to take this opportunity to encourage voters in District 9 to vote for Judy Brigham for Kansas House of Representatives. I have known Judy for over 25 years and have known her to be intelligent in her thoughts, calm in the face of crisis and fearless with the unknown. She served Iola well for 32 years, and as a past Chamber director in Iola, I can attest to the outstanding job she did as city administrator.
As Iola’s city administrator, Judy and I worked closely whether issues involved economic development, business recruitment, tourism or community development. She was always first on the list to donate or help out when needed, and when we suffered the worst flood since 1951, we all were pleased to see her take charge and help in all possible ways. It is when times get tough that we see the true nature of a person. Judy never lost her positive attitude, her giving spirit or her “get-it-done” willingness that helped Iola move out from under the mud and the muck. Judy worked hard to find the resources needed to build Iola back to an even better city than it was before the flood.
