Kansas Common Sense

Completing My 105-County Kansas Listening Tour This Congress
Throughout this Congress, I have crisscrossed the 82,000+ square miles of our state, holding townhall meetings in all 105 Kansas counties as part of my Kansas Listening Tour. These meetings take me to every county in Kansas every two years. On Monday, I brought this listening tour to a close with an Allen County townhall meeting in Moran, Kansas.


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. In almost all of those places, I often find myself thinking, “I could live here.” 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. 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 important townhall meetings and the many conversations we have during them continue to shape the work I am privileged do in Washington, D.C.
