Dole Thanks Kansans

Bob DoleIn a recent interview with the University of Kansas School of Journalism, former Senator and Russell native Bob Dole said thank you to Kansans.

In the message he said:

"Well, I'd like to thank all my friends in Kansas for electing me to Congress. First the House of Representatives for eight years and then the Senate for almost 28 years. Five elections and I hoped I served you well. I enjoyed my job. I enjoyed my work with constituents. And I enjoyed most of all traveling around the state. I remember one lady out in western Kansas who always gave me a box of cookies and a $20 bill, which I could use I guess for dinner. But I remember the state fair in Hutchinson, I attended every year. And the great time I had there meeting farmers and other smaller crowds across the state. But I guess finally I want to say thank you for giving me the opportunity to work for you."
