Kelly Sends Right-Hand Man To Hear Out Rural Towns On Economy, Housing And More

Gov. Laura Kelly said Wednesday she’ll dispatch her lieutenant governor to a dozen small cities across the state in hopes of crafting a plan to aid rural areas.

Kelly created the Office of Rural Prosperity and named Lt. Gov. Lynn Rogers to head it in January soon after taking office.

Rogers will travel to 12 rural communities this summer to “listen to Kansans” and develop “long-term, sustainable solutions” to problems that have spurred decades of population decline in all but a handful of the state’s 105 counties.

“Rural Kansas has been overlooked and unheard for far too long,” Kelly said at a Statehouse news conference.

1. Love her

She is modeling excellent practices to reduce the disconnection between urban and rural. This has national positive possibilities. #Hope
