I want to express how impressed I have been by Blaine Finch’s support of public education.

During the past two years, he has led a collaborative effort through the Franklin County Development Council, working with the Ottawa school district and local businesses on workforce initiatives. This pilot program involves a progressive certification program to teach the students the importance of attendance and workforce standards. The program would be a model for all schools of House District 59 and across the state. It is a program that will develop as it is evaluated and will change as we see strengths and areas to improve to meet the needs of our future workforce.

Finch supports public education as the foundation of a strong economy. Public education is the key to the success of Kansas.

Finch is a product of the public education system — and it has served him well. I know he will make the right decisions for our students.

Blaine Finch is the right choice for House District 59.
