Thanks to Ryan Gering for the support!
Thanks to Bill Cummings and Elaine Reddick for the support. Updated endorsement letter to follow…
Here’s a revised second page of endorsements. To remind my friends and colleagues Steve House, Alan Rupe, and John Gilliam, the letter went to the printer before I received your signatures so they are not on the mailed letters.
I greatly appreciate everyone’s support. Please see earlier posts for the letter itself and the first page of endorsements. So far, 62 attorneys have supported the campaign. They range from staunch conservatives to more liberal members of the bar. Bottom line is that EVERYONE wants fair and unbiased judges. I will strive mightily to meet your high expectations.
Thank you John Gilliam of Klenda Austerman for endorsing my campaign!
The only thing more surprising than the fact we have almost 900 attorneys in the Wichita Bar Association is how much time it takes to stuff and label 900 letters to those attorneys.
The following letter will be mailed next week, less two signatures. Unfortunately, the letter went to the printer before I received the final two endorsements. But I promised Steve House and Alan Rupe I’d add them before posting the letter on the web site. If you would like to endorse the campaign don’t hesitate to let me know. There’s plenty of room on the team.
With these two attorneys on board, that makes 61. I’m humbled that so many respected attorneys are willing to publicly support me. I hope that the last eight weeks of actual judging played a big part in the latest surge of support.
Thanks to Eric Svoboda for his support!
Thanks to Alan Rupe for his support! Welcome aboard!
Thanks to Steve House and Richard Sanborn for the support. Bad news is I didn’t get signatures from these two respected attorneys until after I sent the letter to the printer, but stay tuned for the revised online version in the next few days. Still welcoming support so let me know if you’re on board.
As far as the campaign, things are going very well. I will start knocking on doors this week and the parade season is upon us. If you’d like to march with us let me know and I’ll make sure I have plenty of shirts available. I also welcome door knocking help. I’ll provide a stack of door hangers so you can hit the neighborhoods around your homes.
Now that the campaigning season is here, we welcome your financial support, too. If you’d like to help out, individuals and non-Pacs can give up to $500 up to the primary, and another $500 after. Please send a check or money order made out to “Kevin Mark Smith for Judge,” attn Richard Peckham, Treasurer, to 1502 N. Broadway, Wichita, KS 67214.
