The crowded race for Kansas governor has another candidate.

"All Kansans deserve to have a voice in their government and I will work for you the people," Mitchell said. You the citizens of Kansas are whom I work for, not the political parties."

"United we will create a proactive environment so that we are ready for problems before they happen and this will allow us a quicker resolve to all of our issues like funding for public education, job creation, and our many other issues. Our ultimate goal will be to improve the standard of living for every Kansan." Mitchell said.

"Our children are the future and we need to ensure that they are prepared to succeed in life," he added "That starts with a strong education. United we will create the best education system in not only the USA but in the world.

The economy is also on Mitchell's agenda.

"United we will build the economy by creating jobs. We will not only bring businesses to Kansas but we will assist Kansas entrepreneurs to open successful businesses and to employ their fellow Kansans. Not only will we work on the urban areas but we will also focus on our rural areas and work to build the family farm communities and to maintain the rural populations.
