Highland wants feedback from all sources

By The Mercury

In an article Tuesday regarding a political forum for House candidates held at the Manhattan Arts Center, The Mercury characterized Ron Highland’s response to a question about whether he would listen to party officials or voters as, in the reporter’s words, “a willingness to ignore lobbyists.” Highland disputes the accuracy of that characterization of his view, saying he wants to receive feedback on issues from all sources — lobbyists as well as constituents and others — before coming to a conclusion.

Highland is the Republican candidate in the 51st House district and faces Democrat Richard Pikul in the election. Both men are from Wamego. The 51st District encompasses Wamego, Wabaunsee County, portions of Pottawatomie, Lyon and Shawnee Counties, and the Zeandale township in Riley County.
