Viola and Wempe debate Ken Willard

The Hutchinson News covers a debate between the candidates for Board district 7.

I don't know if I've mentioned it, but giving to the pro-science candidates is important. Beating Ken Willard on August 1 or on November 7 matters, and to do that, these candidates are like bakers: they need the dough.

District 7 (neither candidate seems to have a web presence, north-central Kansas):
Donna Viola (R, primary), 1648 Sunset, McPherson, KS 67460
Jack Wempe (D), 915 W. Noble Lyons, KS 67554

District 9 (southeast, incumbent resigning):
Kent Runyan (D)
Jana Shaver (R, primary)

District 5 (big western district, more space means higher costs, fighting to replace the looniest of the creationists):
Tim Cruz (D)
Sally Cauble (R, primary)

District 1 (pro-science incumbent, Kansas City and outlying areas):
Janet Waugh (D, primary)

District 3 (suburban Kansas City, tight race):
Don Weiss (D, online donation form)
Harry McDonald (R, primary)

And don't forget that advance voting has started. Head over to your county courthouse and get the paperwork.
