The current outlook of our State is bleak – hospitals are closing, schools are declining, our roads are crumbling. Now is the time to hold our elected leaders accountable for their performance and decide whether they are part of the solution or part of the problem.
It isn’t enough to “support” or “oppose” hypothetical legislation or “hope” things become different. True leadership means actively creating, proposing, and advancing positive change for those we represent. Representative Bollier prefers the safety of the sidelines, taking credit away from, or placing blame on those actually doing the work. Dr. Bollier’s voting record follows right along Party lines and the direction of Governor Brownback 88% of the time.
That lack of leadership is unacceptable. It isn’t helping me, my family or my fellow Kansans. It does not reflect the Progressive values of Northeast Johnson County (Senate District 7), nor the direction we want our State to move. We deserve more. We deserve champions who are willing to take bold stances for us and risk public failure for the possibility of change.
As your Democratic State Senator, I will speak loudly and boldly for you. I have a long track record of taking on government dysfunction, building coalitions and creating substantial change. I spent eight years on the Roeland Park City Council successfully crafting legislation, finding common ground between party lines, and moving our community forward. I don’t expect the job to be easy, but I’m up for the challenge. My loved ones serve as daily motivators and reminders that there are thousands of others just like them, counting on me too. Today, Roeland Park is the 5th Most Successful City in the Kansas, #2 Most Attractive to Millennials in the KC Metro, and property values rose 11% in one year.
It’s been 40 years since Johnson County sent a Democrat to the Kansas Senate. If you really want change in Kansas, it’s time for actions; not just words.
Megan England is a dynamic community leader with a proven track record of initiating positive change in Johnson County. She has built a solid reputation as someone who actively takes on government dysfunction and gets things done. Megan is an outspoken advocate for progressive values and common-sense leadership.
First elected in 2007, as one of the youngest in the City’s history to be elected, she served two consecutive terms on the Roeland Park City Council. With nearly a decade in local office, Megan championed significant reforms including:
Results matter. Megan England is the only candidate in the Kansas Senate District 7 race with a proven history of actively proposing and advancing change in Johnson County. As your next State Senator, Megan will continue to focus on what matters and continue to promote:
“As a resident of Kansas Senate District 7 you deserve a Senator who is committed to promoting your ideals; not someone who gives lip service to your ideals with no action to follow. You deserve a Senator who speaks out against the single party domination and failed policies of the far Right; not someone who avoids conflict and falls right in with Party lines. You deserve a Senator who has the energy, ability and track record for creating positive change; not someone who has spent years in Topeka with no results to show for it.
Kansas continues to decline because of the majority’s severe mismanagement of our resources. That is not the type of leadership we need or deserve. We must redefine our measure of success. It is time we stop playing a moderate defense and start restoring balance in the Legislature. It is time we take a bold and active stand for the future of Kansas!”
