Tonight’s Show with Benjamin Hodge of KansasProgress.com

We are welcoming a special guest into the studio tonight, Mr. Ben Hodge. Hodge is a good friend of mine. We first met through an incident I went through at Kansas State University. Hodge, a fellow Wildcat and like-minded thinker, reached out to me, and since then we have stayed in touch through different political activism. Perhaps tonight we’ll discuss my incident at K-State! It’s a good one, I promise.

You might recognized our guest’s name. From his website, with added emphasis: “In early 2006, Hodge was appointed as chairman of a county committee that studied eminent domain and individual property rights. Hodge was elected to the Kansas House of Representatives in November 2006. Hodge’s public policy record has been recognized by Americans for Prosperity, the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, the Kansas Taxpayers Network, Kansans for Life, and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). He and others are forming an independent, local online news journal that will promote limited-government policies.”

You might also recognize him as the creator and writer of The Kansas Progress website.

Tonight, Hodge is going to talk about the Kansas Open Meetings Act, or KOMA.  It is the public policy of Kansas that meetings be open to the public because “a representative government is dependent upon an informed electorate. . . ” Hodge has run into an issue with a representative governing body and KOMA, namely the board and President of Johnson County Community College. It has been brough to the public’s attention, due to Hodge’s information, that they have been barely, if at all, following the laws that are tied to open meetings. One such issue that has been discussed that quite literally cannot be discussed in a closed meeting is the budget.

This issue has not only been covered by KansasProgress.com, but by The Kansas City Star, KC News Watch and RedCounty.com.

While an issue such as this might not directly affect you, it is still unbelievably important that our governing bodies, whether they be for the state of Kansas or for a community college, abide by the law. Hodge will discuss this issue in depth, as well as talk about his experience with corruption and ethics in government at the state level.

It should prove to be a very enlightening night. Please do not hesitate to call or email during the show. We both look forward to talking with you about what is on your mind, whether you agree with what is being said or not. And if you have any questions ahead of time, please email us now and we’ll discuss them tonight. Visit our Contact page for more information on how to get and stay in touch with the show.
