Campaign themes


Lunn's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2][3][4]

Jobs & The Economy

  • Excerpt: "Lower taxes encourages economic growth. Our tax and regulatory burden has put us at a competitive disadvantage in the region resulting in 10 years of net job losses in Kansas. By reducing these burdens our small businesses will have more capital for expansion and job creation."

Spending Reform

  • Excerpt: "Over the last decade politicians went on a spending binge, inflating the state budget to $14 billion and piling up more than $4 billion in debt. We must spend within our means, eliminate waste, determine necessary services and deliver them more efficiently."


  • Excerpt: "Reform the state funding formula to keep more of our tax dollars in the Blue Valley School District. Currently, 70 cents of every Johnson County tax dollar dollar is exported to Topeka… our tax dollars should stay in our classrooms to benefit our kids! Attract, retain and reward teacher excellence and outcomes. Invest in early childhood development."
