Stovall kicks off her run for governor in Marion

Kansas Attorney General Carla Stovall formally kicked off her campaign for governor Monday evening at a reception held at the Marion Senior Center. Stovall, a Marion native and a 1975 graduate of Marion High, announced her intentions to seek the state’s highest office in front of a gathering of around 125 people, including family members, friends, and former schoolteachers. Stovall said in her formal remarks that she had planned to leave public office when her term as attorney general ended, but the events of Sept. 11 changed everything. “I could no longer picture myself leaving Kansas government” at a time when the state faces numerous challenges, including budget problems, the loss of jobs and concerns about public safety.
