An article by Dave Ranney in the Lawrence Journal World makes the case that "Conservatives may be tough to shake off" in the upcoming school board election.


In Wichita, Cindy Duckett is campaigning for the five conservatives on the Aug. 1 ballot.

“I don’t think we’re going to lose any seats,” she said. “As we’ve seen before, I think conservative voters are motivated; moderates aren’t.”

And why is that?

“Where do conservatives gather?” Duckett said. “They gather in church. They meet, they talk, they get motivated. Now, where do moderates meet?”

She paused.

“That’s just it,” Duckett said. “They don’t. They may go to church, but they’re not motivated by church.”

Are moderates motivated enough to take this election? That remains to be seen.

The election is now less than a week away. If the radical right's demonstrated advantage in fund raising for the board positions is reflected in a greater number of motivated voters showing up at the polls, we will have lost a great opportunity to Take Back Kansas.

It's not too late to make a contribution.
