Andover Mayor Ben Lawrence endorses Pompeo in the 4th District race
ANDOVER, KS – The Honorable Ben Lawrence, Mayor of Andover, has added his name to the growing list of local government leaders who have endorsed military veteran and businessman Mike Pompeo in the Kansas 4th District Congressional race.
“Mike is clearly the man we need in Washington to stand up for families and businesses in Andover,” said Mayor Lawrence. “In a time when communities across Kansas are struggling with budget shortfalls and added tax burdens, we need Congressional leaders who will fight to reduce the Federal burden,” continued Lawrence.
Lawrence, two term mayor of Andover, has been involved with Andover’s city government since 2001 when he was elected to the city council. He was elected mayor in 2003 and re-elected in 2007. He owns and operates a small business in Andover specializing in automotive body repair.
“Ben’s endorsement shows local leaders believe, like I do, that the federal government has lost its way,” commented Pompeo. “Government at the federal level needs to learn how to operate within its means the same way municipal governments across the 4th District have done for years.”
