Gov. Sam Brownback to take his show on the road


Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is coming to a town near you.

The two-term Republican governor announced on Thursday on ongoing statewide tour to discuss job creation and economic growth.

Brownback’s goal: to create 100,000 new private-sector jobs in the next four years. He wants to to talk to Kansans about how best to achieve that goal.

“Local businesses, especially small businesses, help drive the Kansas economy through their innovation and creativity,” the governor said in a statement. “I enjoy the opportunity to visit businesses across the state. Their benefit extends far beyond the jobs they create as these businesses often reflect the heart of the people throughout the community.”

No tour schedule was announced. But his office said the tour would begin this month with visits to the Topeka, Atchison and Kansas City chambers of commerce. It’ll continue throughout the summer.
