Local residents pulled up a chair at Fremont Park Friday for a conversation with US Senate Hopeful Democrat Barbara Bollier.

Bollier rolled through Emporia as part of her campaign for US Senate and took time to discuss her campaign, as well as the many issues she feels, are currently facing the state of Kansas and the country as a whole.   She says a common topic of conversation has been the need for more bipartisan cooperation at the federal level. She says "people are tired of Washington as usual."

 

Following her prepared comments Bollier took questions from those in attendance. The questions ranged from pension protection to immigration and even how Bollier plans to promote and sustain bi-partisanship if elected.

Bollier says the key to successful bipartisan politics is listening to one another.

 

Bollier is currently locked in a bitter race for US Senate with Republican Kansas Congressman Roger Marshall. The winner will take over current US Senator Pat Roberts' seat following his retirement later this year.

The general election is Tuesday, Nov. 3. Advanced voting in Lyon County begins Monday.
