What an amazing welcome I’ve had in District 28! I had underestimated the extent to which this district was clamoring for real representation and accountability. The people I meet are excited to have a sensible, moderate person represent them in Topeka. It’s amazing what happens when someone offers public service as an alternative to politics-as-usual!
Joy has blogged extensively about her experience and activities in the legislature and beyond.
