We met at Washington Days. I know what it costs to run campaign as I am challenging Jan Pauls in the Democratic Primary. My wife Anne Lauer and I would like to offer you our guest room when you are campaigning in the Hutchinson area. Several years ago we renovated and now live in the Emerson Carey Building. Some photos of this can be found here

We look forward to hearing from your campaign regarding this. This would include breakfast. I (Brian) makes a terrific omelette and you can dine al fresco on our deck if it’s nice weather.

Let us know.

Brian E. Davis & Anne Lauer

I’ve just watched a CNN report on fracking and it has me more than concerned. Do you have contact folks at the University in geology, etc. who are up to date on this? The CNN item is located on YouTube: ExplainItToMe/fracking. I believe it’s Ohio that is the first State to recognize how badly needed State (and hopefully Federal as well) regulations are needed. Starting this next week, if I heard it correctly, all fracking operations will be under close scrutiny. If there’s a certain level of quake activity/intensity then it will be looked into and if the quake goes above a certain level, the site will be shut down permanently.

Under our current governor’s attraction to and probably paid by you know who, I doubt Kansas will be able to be as proactive (and smart, for heaven’s sake) as Ohio. One can always pray for immediate intervention by an Angry God!

I’ll look forward to any information you might have for my additional research. One of the other women attending our meeting with you is a farm woman who is being romanced by some Big Oil corp to allow them to frack on her land…and her land borders right up against my younger daughter’s family’s home in which two of my young grandkids (ages 7 and 14) are still at home. The concern CNN brings up (as well as the now-documented increase in fault-line earthquake activity) is what types of chemicals are leaching into our groundwater and our wells. My daughter and her family use well water – and I’m going to take my own supply of water to Easter celebration at their home after listening to that very well-presented documentary.

NOW I’m going to bed so I can get to church on time!

Jim – I have a cousin who is in the Cheyenne Co. Hospital and I’m sending her my only business card of yours I have. Could you please send me about 100 of them so I can pass them out to western-Kansas family and friends who are as sick of the current District #1 House Rep as I am – and to other “standing in the middle of the room trying to decide” whether they even SHOULD vote? These are all target people I will be spreading the great news that there is a candidate worth voting for and who will represent our district with integrity. You are an unexpected breath of fresh air! Please don’t get yourself scripted into too long of an introduction but get on to your audience’s particular questions ASAP just as you did when you met with us here in Morris County. The room was lit up with energy as you talked and after you left! If every county in The Big One starts out and continues with the energy Shelley has us in already, you’re a shoo-in! Please know that my prayers are with you constantly…we HAVE to rid ourselves of a lousy governor and our current district House Rep…and all the other Republican junk that lurks in our poor State. I want to keep Tom Moxley in as he is the only moderate Republican I can locate and he and his family attend my church. We have some VERY interesting conversations – all of them good and insightful. I hope he’s in the “No Label” group you mentioned – and that in the next Legislative Session YOU are right there with him making all of us able to once more be proud of Kansas and not embarrassed. No offense to your wife, but I really would prefer not to emigrate to Canada (my other choice is Italy but that’s a bit drastic!). A thought for your items for those of us on Medicare, Medicaid and Disability: There is all sorts of financial help for those of us who need cataract surgery and the blessing of Medicare Part B paying for nearly all of the life-giving help of nebulizers and the medications required for them. We have decent visual coverage for glasses, too. However, and this frosts me personally because I have extremely poor teeth, we have virtually NO coverage for even minor dental care. I’ve been in the medical field in one form or another most of my adult life and dental abscessed and loss of teeth is rampant in our adult population. Please pay special attention to your audiences as you speak with them. See if you feel anyone who is in my age range (71) has any missing teeth or NO teeth at all. An infection in the teeth can lead to an infection that affects the heart and is actually, in my humble opinion, of more influence on our overall health than all the other services combined. If I can’t afford (and I can’t) private insurance to see a dentist regularly and, beyond that, can’t afford to have my ancient, genetically soft and fluoride denied in the drinking water in Goodland, KS while I was in the age range where having that simple addition to my water intake would have prevented a large amount of expense over the years of just patch/patch/patch and I wouldn’t have a set of teeth that simply need to be fully extracted (and given a decent burial) and then replaced with dentures so I can maintain a good nutritional base and live to the age of 97 that is my predicted age of heading pleasantly under the care of a hospice group here in my own home after a full and productive life as a hard-working Kansan. Right now each year there is a dental treatment plan that has (from around age 55 to present) been approximately $2,500 per year…each year…Right now the coverage I have pays $1,500/year for repair and my responsibility is the remainder. All preventive care is free. My dental plan through my current employer lets me see a fine dentist in Manhattan, but I am frankly AT the Gorilla Glue and duct tape point in my life and I’m going to be insisting at my next visit with my dentist that we go the full extraction and dentures route. Just casually observe your potential constituents if you will, and you might have your campaign staff also sound them out as to what they feel Medicare coverage is lacking for us. And, of course, those of us who are “veterans” of the hard-working workforce since age 14 in my case hope that a high priority of your time at the national level (and I’ll vote for you for President, too!) will be to no longer allow the drain of those Medicare funds that were supposed to be JUST for helping those of us of retirement age keep our noses above water. I get extremely irate when I check in on where those funds get siphoned off to rescue another program. I sometimes worked three jobs at the same time in order to raise my family by myself after divorcing and getting no child support at all. I got my Bachelor’s from KU by finishing my last semester by correspondence in the same year I got my Master’s from The Univ. of Iowa. I have followed my family’s deep work ethic and have contributed a lot to Medicare – I have no portfolio to fall back on…only the Medicare check that covers most of my basic needs but I still have to work in order to fill in the “extras” such as medicines which average about $1,000/year. We earned that payback…and if it stops the country is going to see a rebellion than any ever seen in the US before. A large portion of our population exists BELOW the poverty line and that simply is not fair.

Thus ends this evening’s stream-of-consciousness chat with you, Sir. I hope my occasional contacts with you won’t irritate. You could archive them and have your staff riffle through them for the “gems” I hope to send on.

May God go with you on this journey of yours that is so important to all Kansans! My prayers will be with you from here on out. Jean Bowans Chappell – formerly from Goodland, KS

The Ryan Budget just voted to eliminate the NEH and all state humanities councils—I’m sure Huelskamp voted for this pitiful legislation.

Good Afternoon,

My name is Joshua Sellards. I am sending you this email to explain my situation with Kansas State University. I was stationed in Camp Pendleton California for my 4 year enlistment. Upon reaching the end of my contract I decided to EAS and attend college. The college that accepted me was Kansas State University. On August 16, 2011, I left Camp Pendleton for Salina KS to start class on August 22, 2011. My active duty did not end until September 11, 2011. Therefore, I was still active duty when classes started. I was told by the register that me being on active duty did not count for anything and that I had to live in the state for one year before I could gain in-state tuition. After living in the state for the year I applied for in-state tuition. For the second time, I was told that I have to buy a house and then I could gain in-state tuition because I showed them that I did not come to the state just for college. On march, 22 2013, I bought my first house at 815 state St in Salina ks. After I was moved in, I contacted the University again for in-state tuition and again I was denied. I then set up an appeal. On that appeal I was told that I had to be stationed in Kansas to gain in-state tuition. I am in my third year at Kansas State University. I have over $40,000 in student loans due to out-of-state tuition fees. I looking to change the law that would make it clear to all veterans that their GI bill will cover their tuition and fees. I also want to change my tuition rate for this next year so I don’t have to gain more student loan debt. Thank you for reading this email.

Joshua Sellards,

USMC Veteran

MAP-21 expires on Sept. 30, 2014.

Even worse, the Highway Trust Fund could be insolvent as early as July.

I would like to know your stand on Surface Transportation Funding?

As you know, the next re-authorization will focus on funding, do you favor one funding option over another?

That’s my email, but the name is misspelled and I have no nexus to Kansas or interest in supporting that candidate, so please delete me email address and name from the democratic robolist for emails.

Please contact Marcus with Jean’s campaign. I am planning a meet and greet for Scott city at the library on March 19, 3:30 to 5:30 with press meeting with the Scott County newspaper at 2:30 . Am advertising Jean Shodorf and Jim Sherow will be attending. I think Marcus said he would contact your office as well.

I will be sending out cards for area invites. Please send a list if you have it to the email below.
