1st Order of business?

Tax breaks for for the commercial real estate brokers. Salina? Lived there most of my early life..be interesting to hear who has his leash.

Republican Gov. Jeff Colyer selected a Salina commercial real estate broker and former congressional candidate Tuesday night to serve as the state’s lieutenant governor and create a balanced rural-urban ticket for the 2018 gubernatorial campaign.

Colyer, barely two weeks into his reign as Kansas governor, chose Tracey Mann, to be his state government understudy and to be responsible for whipping up votes in rural Kansas ahead of the crowded GOP primary in August.

With the pick, Colyer avoided an alliance with a person closely associated with former Gov. Sam Brownback, who exited Kansas politics as one of the nation’s most unpopular chief executives.

“Tracey has been a leader on economic development and rural issues in Kansas for years,” Colyer said. “I’m really excited to have Tracey join the team.”
Mann has never held elective office, but ran in the Republican Party’s primary during 2010 for the 1st District congressional seat. In that race, he grabbed national headlines for saying twice within a span of 30 days that President Barack Obama needed to produce a birth certificate that clearly affirmed his U.S. citizenship. There is irrefutable evidence that Hawaii is Obama’s place of birth.
