-for the common good-
Recognizing that the top-down approach to combating COVID19 was not working to effectively create systemic behavioral change in our state, Governor Kelly recently announced a partnership with the Kansas Leadership Center (KLC) to mobilize its alumni base, which is nearly 12,000 strong, to mobilize and lead virtual non-partisan convenings across Kansas beginning the week of November 17 and concluding by late December. As a partner of the KLC for nearly ten years, Ellsworth County received a call to action and is prepared to respond to assist our community and our state. It's a small ask for a large grassroots efforts which can effectively create solutions and ideas to turn our state around and reduce the spread of COVID19, saving the lives of our friends and neighbors in our county and reducing the burden on our healthcare system and economic stressors.
