(Topeka) – As a leading conservative, Kansas Senator Caryn Tyson officially launched her campaign for State Treasurer with supporters from across the state at Ravenwood Lodge, Topeka. Tyson, who currently serves as Chairman of the Senate Assessment and Taxation Committee, told the audience, as State Treasurer she will lead the fight to keep government accountable.
“As a legislator, I work diligently to represent you and my record proves it. Kansas needs a State Treasurer that will fight for your liberties by providing transparency and a watchdog on state spending and investments; We need a State Treasurer that will put Kansas First – that is exactly what I am going to do. From defending our Constitution, including the First and Second Amendment Rights, I don’t just talk the talk, I have and will continue to walk the walk. I am the conservative leader who can deliver results as Kansas State Treasurer. You can count on me to work for you,” stated Tyson.

I both respect and trust Caryn. She never gives up. She’ll fight. One thing I like about Caryn is she respects the people she serves and she works for them, not for herself.”
“Caryn is actually trying to fight for you and put more money in your pocket. And she truly believes in less government and I do too. She’s one of those kind of people who doesn’t care who gets the pat on the back, just as long as the truck gets loaded and you save money. She knows how to fight and true a conservative that will fight for you.” State Representative Ken Corbet.
