MORAN, Kan. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) brought his 105-county Kansas Listening Tour this Congress to a close with an Allen County townhall meeting in Moran, Kan. on Monday, November 19, 2018. Since he was elected to the United States Senate in 2010, Sen. Moran’s Kansas Listening Tour has taken him to every county in Kansas every two years.
“One of the highlights of visiting every county in our state is meeting people in every corner and getting to witness the beauty that is Kansas,” said Sen. Moran. “Everywhere I’ve been, I’ve experienced ‘Kansas Kindness.’ But in almost every meeting throughout this listening tour, Kansans have also acknowledged the contentious nature of politics today, and I felt this tension during many of my Listening Tour stops.”
“From nationally syndicated townhalls in Palco and Lenexa where Kansans were debating issues for a national audience, to smaller meetings all across the state, I met Kansans in every county who both agreed and disagreed with me about the issues most important to them,” continued Sen. Moran. “However, over these 105 townhall meetings – and the 1,312 townhall meetings I’ve held throughout my time in Congress – one thing always remains the same: the Kansans I meet with care deeply about our state and the future of our nation. I want to thank the thousands of Kansans who took the time to attend my Kansas Listening Tours and share their thoughts, concerns and ideas with me this Congress. These meetings and the conversations we have during these important meetings continue to shape the work I am privileged do in Washington, D.C.”
