Brownback Kicks Off Effort to Reduce Childhood Poverty

True to his campaign promise, Governor Sam Brownback is attempting to convene a statewide conversation on reducing childhood poverty. The Republican governor hosted the first of three meetings yesterday (MON) in Kansas City, Kansas, one of the poorest and most Democratic communities in the state. But as Jim McLean of the KHI News Service reports, some critics are charging there’s little common ground between the governor’s rhetoric and his policies.

The second meeting on childhood poverty is scheduled for 1:30 tomorrow (WED) in Wichita. The final meeting will take place in Garden City on Thursday.
