By Paul and Patsy Boles, Liberal
This letter is to endorse Shannon Francis as Seward County’s candidate for Representative to the Kansas Legislature.
Besides attending Liberal schools, he has a business degree from Kansas State University. When Patsy served with him as a member of the Seward County Commission, she found him always very well prepared, thoughtful in making judgements on issues, willing to listen to other’s opinions before making his own decision on how to vote on various matters.
As chairman of the commission, he was especially good at getting the group to work together. But regardless of disagreements, he was always your friend as a commissioner.
He was also well respected across the state that he was elected President of the Kansas association of Counties.
Having a mind for business, he was a great asset when figuring the budget and was always mindful of not raising taxes. In fact, during that time, we had one of the lowest property tax rates in the state.
To our knowledge, he doesn’t have a dishonest bone in his body. His “word is his bond,” and he will never deviate from it. He is the kind of pearson we need to have representing us in Topeka. We know he will do his best to represent Seward County.
We are writing this letter because we support him and feel he is, by far, the best qualified person to fill this position.
