OVERLAND PARK, KS - The Kevin Yoder for Congress campaign is proud to announce the endorsement of all three County Sheriffs in the 3rd District in support of his re-election to Congress. Congressman Yoder has been a staunch supporter of law enforcement, and has sought to give our nation's first responders the power to continue to make the 3rd District one of the safest to live in the country.
Of the endorsements Congressman Yoder Said:
"I am honored to have the support of the County Sheriffs of the 3rd District. These distinguished gentlemen lead the police forces that keep all of us in our community safe. I have a profound respect for the work these men do. If re-elected, I will work tirelessly to support our law enforcement officers and do my part to keep our streets free of crime and violence."
The Sheriffs of Kansas' 3rd Congressional District released the following statements:
"Kevin Yoder has been a great friend of law enforcement and first responders. He's proven himself to be a representative focused on reaching across the aisle to get things done and improve our community. I am therefore proud to support Congressman Yoder in his re-election to Congress." - Wyandotte County Sheriff Donald Ash
"When Johnson County was struck with tragedy of Kelsey Smith in 2007, our community sought to give law enforcement the ability to prevent such violence from happening again. Kevin Yoder has led the way in Washington, sponsoring and championing a national version of the Kelsey Smith Act. With this legislation, law enforcement would gain a vital tool when searching for children, stroke victims, and Alzheimer patients in an emergency. With Congressman Yoder's continued leadership, our community will be better off. I'm behind him 100%." - Johnson County Sheriff Frank Denning
"We are privileged to have a fighter like Kevin representing us in Washington. Congressman Kevin Yoder has been a proud supporter of 2nd Amendment rights and a true friend to law enforcement. I urge the people of the 3rd district to join me in supporting Congressman Yoder in November." - Miami County Sheriff Frank Kelly
