Keen A. Umbehr for Kansas Governor
My name is Keen A. Umbehr. I worked as a trashman and small business owner for seventeen years before becoming an attorney, so I understand how hard Kansans work for their money.
As a citizen, I have engaged in governmental oversight and I experienced firsthand how government officials use/abuse their power to punish their critics. But when I fought back and defended my First Amendment rights, the U.S Supreme Court handed down a victorious 7-2 ruling on June 28, 1996.
If elected governor, I will work to restore fiscal responsibility and accountability to Kansas government, and create a safe environment for citizens, government watchdogs and whistle-blowers alike to report misconduct and wasteful spending, without fear of retaliation.
Finally, I will strive to make Kansas government more accessible and transparent, because the pathway to better government is open government. I humbly ask for your support. ~ Keen A. Umbehr (Photo credit: Jack Casner)
