At Stand Up, Speak Out 2017, we are celebrating the persistence of Kansas activists, legislators, and voters, that has led to historic tax reform, and set Kansas on the path to recovery and success. Together--Democrats, Republicans, and Independents--we will celebrate these individuals, prepare for the future, and gather strength from each other, recognizing that this victory is just the first step in a long road back to good governance, quality public education, healthy communities, and sound fiscal policy.
Glickman was a member of the Kansas Congressional delegation for 18 years, served as US Secretary of Agriculture under Bill Clinton.
ROBERT H. MENEILLY AWARD HONOREE
Senior Fellow, Kansas Center for Economic Growth, for his insistence, over the past five years, that there is a better way to fund state government. He has doggedly shown Kansans, in his writing, and at forums across the state, that the tax policies enacted in 2012 hurt our state. He has steadfastly advocated for policies that do not burden any single segment of Kansans, that responsibly fund the duties of government, and set the state on a path to success.
115 Kansas Legislators
We will celebrate the 115 Kansas state legislators-from both parties-who ultimately had the courage to override the Governor's veto of tax reform, and turn five years of resistance into forward progress.
