Yoder Wraps Up 36-Stop Listening Tour
Overland Park, KS – Today, Representative Yoder (R-KS) heads to Washington, DC as the House of Representatives resumes the legislative session coming off a listening tour featuring 36 stops across the Third District, culminating with the Faith Love and Walk event last night that concluded SevenDays: Make a Ripple, Change the World.
Representative Yoder joined by his staff at Faith Love and Walk with SevenDays founder Mindy Corporon.

“I feel truly reinvigorated every time I get to spend a district work week criss crossing the Third District, listening to Kansans and getting their feedback on what is most important to them,” Representative Yoder said. “Kansans are excited about our economy being on the upswing, and are looking to Congress to help get government out of the way so we can get to the three or four percent growth we need to really put ourselves in a good place. They want tax reform, regulatory reform, health care reform, and immigration reform bills on the president’s desk for signature. They want to keep our borders secure and make sure our military receives the support they need to keep us safe. I look forward to getting back to work on legislation in DC in the coming weeks and advancing their priorities in Congress.”
Over the last week, Yoder visited stops in each of the three counties in the Third District – Johnson, Wyandotte, and Miami – participating in several question and answer forums, sitting down for radio interviews on the issues, touring area businesses, reading to Head Start children, serving lunch at a food kitchen, and much more. He participated in five radio interviews at KMBZ, KCUR, 810 Sports Radio, and KC Cares and hosted a telephone town hall forum with nearly 6,000 constituents participating.
