Brownback talks agriculture in southwest Kansas

Gov. Sam Brownback visited Garden City, Aug. 22, to speak with members of the agricultural community at the 9th district Farm Bureau meeting. Brownback later visited Tatro Plumbing where he spoke with owner Bob Kreutzer and officials with Sunflower Electric of Holcomb, Kansas.

He said houses are being built in communities that haven’t seen new construction in 50 years.

 

“I think people want a community,” Brownback said. “This is a great season for us as a state—a great chance for us to grow. We’re doing it.”

 

The governor has seen expansion in the dairy industry in southwest Kansas during his term as well as expansion in the wind industry.

 

“We’ve had $3 billion worth of new wind energy in this state while I’ve been governor—more than doubled the size of the wind capacity in this state,” Brownback said. “(Wind) which is a great renewable resource that we’re used to having, and now we’re making electricity.” [Read More]
