A look at endorsements for JCCC candidates

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

The Star looks at the endorsements for JCCC candidates:

Ben Hodge, who is seeking another term on the board, has garnered the endorsements of two conservative lawmakers_ House Majority Leader Ray Merrick, a Stilwell Republican, and Rep. Mike Kiegerl, an Olathe Republican.

Hodge is well known among conservative activists and is expected to get a lot of support from conservative, pro-life voters. He also has the endorsement of Kansans for Life, although it is doubtful the board of trustees will ever vote on an abortion issue.

The faculty association at the college has endorsed four candidates, Melody Rayl, Peter Jouras, Stephanie Sharp and Bob Drummond.

The Kansas City Star recently endorsed Rayl, Jouras, Sharp and Miguel Morales.

The faculty association may be having second thoughts about Drummond. They are concerned about reports that he referred to homosexuality as a disorder and that as a member of the Olathe School Board he supported the removal of the book “Annie on My Mind” from school libraries.

Hodge is also endorsed by The Gardner News and Hope for America Coalition’s Steve Shute.
