Kansas Democratic Party - Larry Gates
February 28th, 2009
"Along with all Kansas Democrats, I am thrilled our good friend, Governor Kathleen Sebelius, is nominated for this high Cabinet post. I applaud President Obama for nominating someone with the knowledge, skills and compassion needed to bring change to America's health care system. As she always does, our Governor has made all Kansans proud of her and her nationally recognized leadership.
"Mark Parkinson, as our new Governor, will be great for Kansans and great for Democrats. During his two decades in public service, Mark has dedicated himself to working with both parties to craft solutions for the people of this great state.
"I am excited to work closely with Mark as he continues the Kansas Democratic Party's tradition of solving problems with common sense and Kansas values."
