Allen Will Continue to Be Active In District
The suspense stretched long into the evening and was eventually finalized early this morning. Although she lost Miranda Allen, Senate Candidate for District 32, came a long way in a very short time. In a matter of weeks, she went from a normal mom, business owner, and breast cancer survivor to a State senate candidate. Allen States “The journey was enlightening. I met so many wonderful friends along the way and feel truly blessed to be a part of this process. The outpouring of support has been amazing. Although campaigning door-to-door in triple-digit weather was a challenge, it was worth it.”
Miranda has been a lifelong Republican and a moderate. She believes in strong schools, good paying jobs, responsible tax reform, and taking care of those that can’t care for themselves so that we ensure our best days are yet to come. However, she’s also active on the business side. She will continue to do what she’s been doing all along: growing jobs, supporting quality education, being a leader for collaboration, and promoting energy and transmission development. She will continue to help grow her areas’ economy and work for the citizens.
As a breast cancer survivor, Miranda knows every day is a gift from God and not to waste a single minute. Kansas is at a crossroads. There is a better way. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of our children. It was a hard-fought campaign. The differences between the candidates were apparent and the issues were focused upon and each vote truly mattered. “We all need to work together on moving our district forward – for quality schools, good jobs, and more reasonable property taxes. Whether Republican or Democrat, moderate or conservative, we are all citizens of this great state. We have common interests and values, and we must work to ensure that we build a strong future for our children and grandchildren. I will continue to commit myself to making the 32nd district the best place in the nation to raise a family. I will continue to be here listening with an open mind, reaching across party lines, and including everyone in finding solutions. “
You can choose to be positive and have faith. You can choose to wake up each day and thank God for all you are given and you can choose to make the world better. Miranda will continue her dedication to the district on Friday at the Barber County Relay for Life where she is a co-honorary chair for the event. She is passionate about adoption awareness and cancer education. Allen States, “Last year I was fighting for my life and this year I’m fighting for Kansas and will continue that fight. Both of which are battles we can and must win.”
