In an biographical submission to Ballotpedia, Jenney highlighted the following campaign themes:
|“||The Kansas Constitution mandates that the legislature provide adequate funding for public education, and they have refused to do so.
The legislature redefined teacher so that I am no longer a teacher. They did so to eliminate due process in termination of teachers, following the lead of the Kansas Chamber of Commerce that declared that they want to destroy public sector unions.
The mismanagement of Kansas finances has resulted in the downgrading of our credit. This will result in deeper cuts in social services and education.
The legislature cut taxes for the wealthiest Kansans and, prompted by Brownback, increased the tax burden on working poor and middle class families by keeping the sales tax rate high.
Millions of Kansas dollars are going to the federal government for Medicaid expansion, but our governor and legislature are refusing to expand Medicaid simply for political gamesmanship. The thousands of uninsured Kansans need to be answered to.
The refusal of services bill, passed by the House, but thankfully killed in the Senate, is indicative of the unbalanced and extreme nature of our current representation.
