John Skubal and Chris Cindric are from different political parties. But as they chatted at the MainPAC Step Up Rally in Prairie Village Saturday, they found that what they had been hearing from voters the past several weeks was virtually identical.
Skubal, a Republican who is running against incumbent Jeff Melcher for the Kansas Senate, and Cindric, a Democrat who is running against incumbent Steve Roberts for the State Board of Education, agree that the Johnson County residents they’ve been hearing from have one top concern: Schools.
“It’s pretty much the same theme over and over, door-to-door,” Skubal said. “They want to know where you’re at with the governor, or they want to know what’s happening with schools. And they’re disappointed.”
