I believe we need Cowley College in Wellington to boost our economy! Please get out there tonight and find out more!

However, until the hospital and schools are more secure financially by the expansion of Medicaid to pay for uncompensated care and a better plan for the school it’s like putting the cart before the horse. CC would help train students for jobs. Any industry or business has as one of it’s two priorities good schools and good health care plus recreational facilities. We have our schools funded for another year but after that ???? . Our governor and legislature opposed expansion of Medicaid that would put our hospital be on better financial footing. Vote for Don Shimkus for KS Senate Dist. #32, Michelle Schiltz, for KS House Dist. #80, Jo Roitman, for KS House Dist. #116. Check them out before the Nov. election. They will support expansion of Medicaid and adequate funding of our public schools. Report Reply 0 replies · active 210 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!
