Here's some insight from Down with Tyranny on Jim Sherow's candidacy:
Enter Jim Sherow, a courageous, idealistic fourth generation veteran and former mayor of Manhattan, who has just opened an exploratory committee to challenge Huelskamp this year. His great-grandparents homesteaded in the what is now the first district and he was born and raised there. He's been teaching at Kansas State since 1992, where he is the Kansas historian and he's written five books on issues related to water, agriculture, Kansas and High Plains topics. He first entered local politics in a successful fight to prevent a super-Walmart from being built in an inappropriate part of town and was elected to the city commission in April 2007, serving until last April.Additional information on Sherow via Kansas First News:
While Huelskamp was getting kicked off the Budget Committee, Sherow was working as a City Commissioner and Mayor in Manhattan, achieving real results – Manhattan enjoyed steady economic prosperity and some of the lowest unemployment in the nation.If you desire to support and get involved in Jim Sherow's campaign for Congress in KS-01, links below:
“During my time on the City Commission, I worked diligently with members of the business community to help create prosperity and growth,” Sherow said. “I will bring that same approach to Washington. Tim Huelskamp’s abrasiveness cost him a seat at the negotiating table to help frame the policies that keep Kansas open for business.”
Sherow promises to restore respect, responsibility, and representation to the office rather than Huelskamp’s self-serving, never-ending quest for attention.
“Our government isn’t just divided, it’s paralyzed; and it’s going to take hard work, perseverance, and a pragmatic approach to get it back on its feet and working for the people.” Sherow said. ”It’s about results.”
Our goal is to strengthen the liberal & progressive Democratic community through information, outreach and to also help promote legitimate Democratic candidates regardless of fundraising numbers or attention in the news.
