Issues

Campaign themes

Russell's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Public Education

  • Excerpt: "Kyle will fight to undo these tax breaks, restore every penny of the recent funding cuts to public schools, and provide for future school funding increases that are at least equal to inflation."

Infrastructure and Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Another major function of state government is to provide roads and other infrastructure, and past success in this area is another reason highly educated people move to or stay in Kansas and Johnson County."

Taxes and Budget

  • Excerpt: "He will fight to restore funding for public education, job-creating programs, infrastructure and essential social services. He will also work to reinstitute a fair tax code based on the ‘three-legged stool’ of income, sales and property taxes that has worked in Kansas for decades."
