WIBW: “The Sunflower State is Looking At Its Best Investment Year Ever”

The Kelly economy reached another milestone victory last week. Gov. Laura Kelly announced the state has surpassed $7 billion in new business dollars invested in Kansas and over 29,000 new jobs created since she took office.

“This announcement means more jobs, more money in Kansans’ pockets, and a stronger economy for all of us,” said Gov. Kelly.

After Gov. Kelly inherited an economic disaster from Republicans Sam Brownback and Derek Schmidt, the Kelly economy is bouncing back by investing in schools, roads and bridges, high-speed internet, and essential services to keep Kansas open for business.

“The Sunflower State is looking at its best investment year ever,” reports WIBW, adding that the announcement follows a series of economic development wins.

Just this year, Kansas received Area Development Magazine’s prestigious Gold Shovel Award, was recognized by Site Selection Magazine as having the top business climate in the region, and is one of three top states reporting higher employment in rural communities.

DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton said: “Gov. Laura Kelly has delivered for Kansans where Derek Schmidt and Sam Brownback failed — funding public education, creating 29,000 jobs, and attracting billions of dollars of investment into the state’s economy. The Kelly economy is booming and shows no signs of slowing down.”
