As Attorney General, I will work tirelessly to ensure equal justice for all Kansans. I will work with state and local government, including all Kansas law enforcement agencies, to provide oversight, accountability, and transparency, in all cases. I will prosecute vigorously any person, including any government official, who violates the law or a person’s constitutional protections.
OVERSIGHT AND PROTECTION
As Attorney General, I will go after predatory lenders, and corporations that target Kansas residents. I will work to protect consumers, including students, from aggressive debt collection tactics. I will increase resources to defend all senior citizens from neglect, abuse, and exploitation. I’ll ensure that unsafe assisted living facilities and in-home care providers are stripped of their licenses, issue scam notifications for public awareness, and vigorously prosecute cases of Medicaid fraud.
ENFORCING THE KANSAS CONSTITUTION
Kansas needs an Attorney General who advocates for greater inclusion in civil rights laws. As Attorney General I will ensure that agencies of the government enforce the Kansas Constitution equally and prosecute vigorously any discriminatory or bias actions by any government agency or agent, will ensure that agency regulations are followed and applied legally and without bias, that education and health care are available to all and that property rights of all Kansans are honored.
BEST INTERESTS OF OUR CHILDREN
I will ensure that all state and local agencies follow the legal standard of keeping families together as well as protecting them from harmful environments. I will ensure Kansas is a leader in fighting child exploitation of any kind. I will fight for a fully-funded public school system. It’s time to make our most valuable commodity (our children and their education) a priority in Kansas.
CRYPTOCURRENCY & BLOCKCHAIN TASK FORCE
As Attorney General I will create educational, consumer protection and investor task forces modeled after similar Securities and Exchange Commission, CFTC and IRS programs ensuring that Kansas becomes a leader in technology and all Kansans are protected and while enjoying expanded earning potential, strengthening our local economies and social impact.
ENDING CANNABIS PROHIBITION
I support the decriminalization or legalization of cannabis and hemp agriculture. Kansas needs a common-sense approach to licensing and regulation of cannabis agriculture, manufacturing, testing, distribution and compliance. When elected, I will work with the legislature, state and local governments agencies, including law enforcement, business, farmers, industry leaders, the medical community, educators and most importantly all Kansans. I will ensure that Kansas is protected from Federal overreach via the 10th Amendment, end the war on drugs and ensure a safe market. I will work hard to allow sick Kansans access to both CBD and legal cannabis.
As attorney general, I will implement a new system focused on transparency and accountability in law enforcement. This will include a statewide Brady-Giglio list (comprised of all officers in the state with dishonestly/credibility issues), a task force of investigators and prior law enforcement officers who will perform unbiased investigations of police misconduct, and the operation of a statewide hotline where allegations of sexual misconduct, racial profiling, and other misdeeds can be reported and investigated.
PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
The Attorney General plays an important role in protecting the public’s interest in our natural resources. As AG, I will protect our environment for future generations.
