A Common Sense Focus for Kansas

A note from Eric Jenkins...

Leadership in challenging times requires a focus on common sense - which means bringing forth ideas that will solve the problems we face. That is the perspective I have had through my entire career, and the approach I will bring if you trust me with your vote in Topeka.

As a longtime resident of Shawnee and 20+ year member of the Shawnee Planning Commission, I was a participant in the growth and development of Shawnee which has been a striking success story over the past two decades. As new families and businesses move in, we must welcome them and do all we can to make their decision to join us a positive one. Growth is important, and with that growth must come good quality jobs and a belief that taxes should remain low for families and businesses. When Rep. John Rubin approached me to run, I decided this mindset might also be helpful at the State Capitol, as well- where we must remain laser focused on the key priorities of education, transportation, and public safety.

I am pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment, and pro-family. I believe in economic policies that promote job creation and keep taxes low. I believe in local control of schools, and ensuring every possible dollar reaches the classroom, working to ensure that Johnson County schools are treated fairly in the funding solutions we craft going forward. That's just, again, common sense.

I urge you to take a look around my website and learn more about my background and ideas and contact me with any questions.
