Andrea Ramsey, Fortune 500 Executive & former KS-03 candidate
“I am proud to endorse Matthew Calcara for Kansas State House District 30. He is singularly focused and dedicated to serving the citizens of House District 30. He has worked diligently, knocking on doors, meeting constituents one-on-one to listen to their issues and concerns. He understands what it means to work hard, to listen and to be a public servant. More importantly, I know Matthew seeks to represent all of the citizens of House District 30. It is imperative we have another strong, progressive voice in the Kansas State House, willing to listen, willing to fight for his constituents’ interests and willing to do difficult, important work on behalf of all Kansans. Please join me in enthusiastically supporting Matthew Calcara’s campaign to represent Kansas House District 30.”
Paula Sayles, Kansas Chair of Our Revolution: Kansas City
Matt Calcara supports the kind of bold, progressive policies that have been proven to work to lift up middle and working-class Kansas families. Universal pre-K, raising the minimum wage, expanding Medicaid and reversing KanCare privatization are policies that Kansans support.
Inoru Wade, LGBTQ policy analyst
The choice could not be more clear, Matthew Calcara is the best choice for representing the 30th District. I’ve personally advised him on policies related to the LGBTQ+ community and heard his vision for Kansas. His policy prescriptions are the key to making Kansas a more equitable and wonderful place to live!
