I was always amazed at the kids’ reactions to seeing Chuck Schmidt in the schools. They were always high fiving him and excited to tell him hello. Chuck was a very hands on superintendent. His visibility in the school district and around Independence helped us get where we are today. We need a candidate who is hands on and not afraid to make the correct decision for Kansans, not a decision influenced by what the big dollar donors want.

Chuck Schmidt has experience in agriculture, business, and education. He knows how to listen to his constituency and act accordingly. If you truly want a Senator who will represent you in Topeka, then Chuck Schmidt is your best choice. He makes decisions based on the facts, not on ideology.

After being recruited by many universities as a student-athlete in football, Chuck Schmidt chose the University of Kansas. As a former athletic-academic counselor at Kansas, I was proud to watch his many achievements both on the gridiron and in the classroom. There was no doubt of Chuck’s ability to excel at the top of his class in both academics and athletics. It is no surprise that he rose to the top of his profession.

Chuck Schmidt is a man with good ideas for governing our state. I believe that his plan for fixing the current budget crisis, his readiness to expand Medicaid, and his respect for existing judiciary structure are steps in the right direction to put our state back on the right track. His experience in administration, business, and farming are a great fit for a Kansas legislator. I support Chuck Schmidt for Kansas District 15 Senator!

During his tenure as Superintendent of Independence, KS schools, Chuck Schmidt was faced with a good many fiscal situations. These included, but were not limited to, fluctuations in school funding, a recession, and the passage of a school bond issue. He proved himself to be a good manager of taxpayer funds. For years to come, taxpayers will have the benefit of a reduced rate of interest in the school bond payments. Chuck led the way in acquiring those savings. Chuck is able to accomplish these…

What the Kansas legislature lacks today is leadership based on conscience and principle. Chuck Schmidt is just such an individual. He will provide welcome relief from the destructive partisanship and the hidden agendas of our current representation.
