Letter to the Editor: Kansas Senate & Representative Candidates

Dear Editor,

In anticipation of the August 6th elections, Republican candidates for the 1st District Senate and 62nd District Representatives gathered on June 18th to address voters at the Nemaha County Republican Forum.

First District Senate Candidates; Craig Bowser of Holton. Bowser, a 24-year U.S. Army Reserve, serves on a Statewide Commission and is the 1st Congressional District Vice Chair. He believes the Republican Party has had no voice in the state Senate for District 1 since 2022, and he wants to fix that.

Candidate Dr. John R. Eplee lives and practices medicine in Atchison. He was elected to the Kansas House of Representatives four times for District 63. The areas he most wants to see improvement are property tax relief, healthcare, and border security.

Candidate Senator Dennis Pyle. Pyle resides on a farm near Hiawatha. He served as Representative of Dist. 49th in 2001 and was elected to the Senate in 2004. He ran as Independent for Governor in 2022, and now seeks a fourth senate term as a Republican candidate. His wife, Jennifer, spoke on his behalf, saying Pyle is a man of integrity and the only candidate with a proven conservative record.

62nd District House of Representative Candidates; Dort Goodman, former Vice Chair of the Nemaha County Republican Party, resides on a farm north of Sabetha. A former insurance agency owner, she thinks that we must believe as Americans that change is possible. School choice is a major issue she hopes to address.

Candidate Dylan Keim, current 3rd Dist. Nemaha County Commissioner, former mayor of Willard, Ks, lives north of Seneca. He is committed to lowering taxes and creating an environment where business can thrive and create jobs.

Candidate Sean Willcott lives in Jackson County. He was inspired to run because he sees the effect of the middleman on small businesses statewide. He has pro-business principles and wants to see more tax reduction.
