Keith Esau Continues to Earn Endorsements
The following individuals and organizations have endorsed Keith Esau:
I believe that government should be limited in scope. – The proper role of government is to provide for its citizens only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations and the best government is that which governs least.
I believe that government should be accountable. – The most effective, responsible, and responsive government is where government is closest to the people and where the people are able to hold their government accountable.
I believe in economic responsibility. – All government must practice fiscal restraint and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn. The state cannot be run on debt or deficit spending.
I believe in free enterprise. – Individual initiative is what brought this nation opportunity, economic growth, and prosperity. Businesses and individuals should be free from government encumbrances in the marketplace and in their lives.
I believe in the rights of the individual. – The strength of our nation lies with the individual and each person’s freedom and constitutional rights must be protected.
I believe in the responsibility of the individual. – A person’s destiny is a result of their own work and government should not be used to give things to those who are able to take care of themselves or to pick winners and losers in the marketplace.

Keith Esau Announces for State Representative
OLATHE -- 3rd Congressional District Republican Chairman, Keith Esau, announced today that he has filed to run for State Representative in the 14th District, which covers portions of northern Olathe and southern Lenexa.
“I believe that Kansas took a bold and long-overdue leap forward in seriously addressing tax reform during this year’s legislative session. Presidents from John F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan proved that cutting taxes stimulates economic growth. Over the past few decades, our leaders adopted a ‘government first’ mentality that became more and more costly. Our high taxes drove business elsewhere and our economy has been falling behind the rest of the nation as a result. The progress made in this year’s legislative session toward reducing our tax burden and reforming the way state government operates is very encouraging.”
