Special to the Leader & Times
A reception for Democrat candidate for the First Congressional District, Jim Sherow, will take place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday in the East Room at Ruffino’s Restaurant. This is a come-and-go reception with the opportunity to meet the candidate who has filed against Congressman Tim Huelskamp. Light refreshments will be served.
Pledging to bring back “Respect, Responsibility and Results” to the First Congressional District, Sherow said, “As an educator and small business owner, I have struggled to meet the same challenges as middle class families across the Big First. My experience as mayor showed me we need a representative who will work as hard on your behalf as Kansan teachers, workers, farmers and ranchers do in their fields of endeavor every day.”
Sherow served as mayor of Manhattan from 2007 to 2012. He served in the Air Force, has dual degrees in History and Secondary Education with a Masters degree in History from Wichita State University, and a Ph.D in History from the University of Colorado. He’s been a member of the Department of History at Kansas State University since 1992.
The reception is sponsored by the Seward County Democratic Party.
“We want voters to have an opportunity to meet a candidate who is a refreshing change to our current Congressman who puts partisan politics ahead of the needs of farmers, veterans, and small businesses,” Jack Carlile, chair of the Seward County Democratic Party, said.
