MainStream moves rally back to Prairie Village, urges member action beyond just voting

SM East graduate Logan Heley, who is running as a Democrat for the Kansas Senate seat occupied by Greg Smith, was among the candidates on hand at the MainPAC rally.

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.”
