As the end of the year approaches and we prepare to ramp up the campaign, reality strikes. It costs anywhere from $20,000 to $60,000 to mount a successful judicial campaign. Costs include yard signs, mailings, TV commercials, billboards, etc. All of those things are expensive, and all for a position that pays less than most candidates make in private practice. Hence, fundraising is invitable. If you support my position on the issues–namely, judges apply the law and don’t make it!–as well as my specific objective in division 24–to restore integrity to the division–then I’m asking for you financial support as well as your vote.
I am pro-life, pro-family, and pro-religious freedom, and a good part of my legal practice has been committed to providing legal support to organizations that stand for these positions.
Please consider supporting the campaign. Individuals can give $500 before the primary and $500 after. Give whatever you can. Send checks made out to “Kevin Mark Smith for Judge” and mail to my office at 1502 N Broadway, Wichita, KS 67214.
I thank you in advance for your support.
