Issues

Campaign themes

On her 2011 campaign page, Landes discusses her approach to politics:

  • "I truly believe the political problems we face can be solved if we stop focusing so much on partisan ideological differences and instead focus on finding solutions that work. I decided to jump into this race because Kansas Citians deserve a real choice of representation, not just the usual machine politicians."
