Our ability to move forward for a better future for all Kansans is only as strong as our ability to find common ground through open and productive dialogue. The “win-at-all-costs” approach taken by too many of our current leaders leaves many with anger, animosity and resentment. It is essential to have leadership focused not on party politics, but moving us collectively forward. Clothier
My consulting business O’Shea Strengths Coaching trains people to understand the unique differences in talent of others so together, teams can be well-rounded and more productive. Working at Heartland Visioning, I facilitated the voices of the public sector, private sector, community leaders, neighbors, etc. to ensure a wide variety of voices and solutions were brought to the table to make our community better.

Compromise and cooperation is the key to success in just about any aspect of life, and I know it’s no different in the Kansas Legislature. I have more than a decade of experience in educational nonprofit management where I have spent much of my time getting things done with very little money by bringing people together for the betterment of the whole.

I was instrumental in working across the aisle as a freshman to create a bi-partisan "Freshman Caucus" of legislators who worked together to rebalance Kansas' income tax structure, close the LLC loophole, restore the Child and Dependent Care Credit and pass Medicaid Expansion in the House. I can work with anybody, regardless of political party, to make good public policy. The legislature needs people like me who believe in building bridges. Dietrich
I know that you have put Party differences aside and work together for the people of Kansas. I have a proven track record of working in a bipartisan manner to move Kansas forward. Most recently, I served as a key negotiator on the school funding bill that put an end to nearly a decade of school finance litigation. Hensley
Legislators are to work for the people they are elected to represent. I will work with anyone, regardless of party, who puts the interests of the people ahead of brinkmanship. When I opposed Brownback’s plan to close the Kansas Neurological Institute (KNI), I worked with legislators of both parties to ensure it remained open. Schlingensiepen
We can do politics better, and how we start is by working to find middle-ground solutions that best fit Kansans. Ultimately, my goal is to do what is best for the community I serve, assuring that I would work across party lines. Kloos
