The Quiet Kansans

We haven't heard much out of Kansas recently....

It was something of a relief to find a story from a local Kansas newspaper today indicating some Southwest Chief support from the cities it passes through. Garden City Manager Matt Allen and Dodge City Attorney Ken Strobel weren't shy about voicing their support; as for Governor Sam Brownback (R), his support for the Southwest Chief remains unconfirmed.

According to an article in the Santa Fe New Mexican, Brownback was known for heavy criticism toward Amtrak when he was a U.S. Senator. As of now, we know Garden City Mayor Dan Frankhauser and U.S. Representative for the district John Doll (R) are doing what they can to save the Chief.
