Carlin stops in Southeast Kansas

News

A former Sunflower State governor makes a stop in Southeast Kansas to develop bipartisan support to address statewide issues.

John Carlin served as the 40th governor of Kansas, from January of 1979 through January of 1987. Carlin spent today in Southeast Kansas, and tells us health care was a major topic of discussion. He says Kansas is facing some tough decisions on health care, and that it’s going to make a bipartisan approach to make them.

“And certainly healthcare fits that description, and one of the things that is so important is that we need elected officials that will work with somebody across the isle, we can’t have this fighting back and forth,” says John Carlin.

Carlin says his visit was prompted in part by the recent announcement of the closing of Mercy Ft. Scott.
