Qualities of a donkey you know anything about that Greg Norman at the car donkeys leader's eldest leaders you know I'm I'm I'm not a vet an area that's literally can't comment and challenges. We have a special guest this morning Greg Orman is with this and you're running as an. Independent right for the for the governorship which is going to be open here pretty soon. And that that's correct we've announced that we are formally running for governor of the great state of Kansas is an independent now you you've done you've run for office before until about federal we are in on 2014. I ran after the United States senate as an independent and I was BF frankly really gratified by the response we got we built a great foundation and 2014. And we plan to build on that foundation this year and then when the governor stress related -- you get a network you set it up like they did in the old days we've got all these people in different communities that are new working forty hour work and real hard to build a grassroots network of of kansans and so far were were really pleased with the response that we've gotten we you know we ended the campaign in 2014. With almost a thousand volunteers and many of those people have. Have come back and said we wanna we wanna help you mass that help the state Kansas was so so. What your background. When you always been running for office now I'm I'm I'm I'm sort of a serial entrepreneur I've started and built many businesses over the course of my life might started my first business when I was. Tony three years old and and built that company over and over four year were sold to Kansas City power and light them. And have basically been building businesses creating jobs and opportunities for people ever since your from fairway cancers. Yep my Wi-Fi civil and I live with our two daughters. They are they're young have got a two and a half year old and a seven week old. It seems to me that there we were commenting on fear resisted it but it reduce the FaceBook photo a minute ago and you've got the shocker logo. On you're on your jacket guy and Isiah I wonder about the case you had in case state voters you're gonna have fights objectives got all of. Well you know I I I have you know I I I don't know what I would like to complete before you got it I I tend to support case state football and I and I and I love watching KUN and data and actually frankly all three teams on basketball I I went to the shocker game last night and was able watch them bring home a victory and and really excited about what they're doing this year and endlessly down to business here why you might acre you run what are what are what are the big issues as far as you're concerned Greg well you know I act I think right now lot kansas' that are critical juncture I think the people of Kansas know that over the last seven years things have gone seriously wrong and that you know frankly. Tom I'm concerned that if we don't change that tied we're we're not going to create a state that my two daughters are gonna wanna build their lives and and for me that's that's what this is all about I wanna. Makes Kansas a place where all our children all our grandchildren she can feel really inspired. To build their lives. You're dealing with these people these lawmakers who they've been after this thing with the education funding for several years. Don't seem to have come up with maybe have the answer yet what is your approach to the education fund glad ya. I I sometimes think that when you think just in terms of the democratic playbook or the Republican playbook you sometimes leave a whole lot of answers on examined and so. You know for me I think what the Supreme Court said was that there was a certain group of students who worked getting an equivalent education others. And I think we need to look at that problem very specifically if you look at the difference between low income kids and high income kids. You know there are a couple of things that really drive the achievement gap. How one of them is pre K to one of them is the summer learning death sentence I think we would be better off with targeted solutions. And frankly that's what we do in the private sector you know on the private sector you'd take a look at a problem. You'd say what's really the root cause of this problem and what's the most efficient and effective way. For us to solve. At the end of the day that three coaches say this is not enough money that's not enough money he's gonna have puts more money and well we absolutely have to again. Get past this sort of back and forth between the Supreme Court and the legislature that's not productive it's not helpful and it's certainly not leading to better. Better outcomes for our kids so we need a solution and not that lasts. An and one that can keep us out of this constant back and forth and cycle can't get to as somebody's been involved an entrepreneur your efforts what it would. What are some opportunities that Kansas has business lies and where some of the areas we really need to improve when you know we we are sitting at dun and interest thing opportunity worth the geographic center of the United States at a time when our economy is quickly moving from a bricks and mortar to a distributed economy. We should be the distribution capital of America we've gotten very low cost manufacturing inputs in the form of agricultural products dairy and even energy we've got three class one railroads that travel through the state we should be the intermodal manufacturing capital of America. And and what I'm governor we're going to pursue policies. Not that help the private sector create and build and grow and expand those industries and opportunities we hear a lot from mrs. fields it did take some of the rules off. Didn't that day and let us be free that it has your experience been the government has been just too big. Problem when you're trying to sort of knew that you know by about my father who is also small business person once said the you know one regulation isn't a problem but the the way we have this sort of group my group of state federal local regulations that sort of like your. Falling into or regulatory. But a lot of them are problem you know when I talk to senior executives that one of the class one railroads. I'm asked them why they didn't develop more in Kansas that was one of the things that they mentioned stimulus said you know look we built the facility in Texas. And we built that in half the time that would have taken us to build and cancel so I think we have to look seriously at that. Another thing that we're seeing I'm just bid as a pattern is. Where are the workers are skilled. Workers that educated workers coming from because in burn look at form can't find some times yeah I know we've got a very low unemployment rate in Kansas. And independence and if you've hit on one of the key issues which as we need to figure out how to keep our kids here. You know we need to figure out how to create the jobs and opportunities and create the kind of lifestyle environment that that makes our kids wanna stay here and that's going to be one of the focuses of of what we're trying to accomplish as well and over the course of the campaign. How will actually come out with very specific policies to address that head but yet great having been through that senate run. Did you learn anything from that foray into politics actual surgery this time cardiac you know I learned you have to ever really fixed again you know so but if the civil and I have my wife traveled the states and you know I have to say that well while there's obviously a lot of attacks a lot of ugliness that was really gratifying to us it was great to be able to travel the state of Kansas. Talk to people about issues they care about. Not we have lot of folks come out and support us people that we didn't expect would support us and that was really incredibly gratifying. When. It is sip little unusual to see an independent. May think it trying it in the in the in a political world anymore because reef re here we see that. The way they butt heads and it is well. But and that's and that's why we need independents. You know if you if you think about it we we get very little accomplished today in large part because two parties seem to be more interest in seeing the other party failed and they do and seeing our. Our state our country succeed and so we need to do something different Lamine. What I say to people of if you're happy with what's going on you know there and continue to support. The same approach but I think most people. I find that when they go to the polls they're oftentimes choosing between two bad options then they sort of think they're having to pick between the shingles on the float and and they don't want either. Great you brought a vote today if you actually read this because you know I've done that app and politicians don't read books I don't think the heavier than you know actually not only that I not only did I read it I wrote it I wrote a book called a declaration of independence that really lays out. My vision for what we need to do to get our country back on the right track and a big part of that. Iraq comes with breaking that two party stranglehold giving us options then and really giving us candidates we can vote for instead of vote against me just say that in the in the weeks and months ahead. Other gubernatorial candidates who'd like to deal was even did we get pretty much an open door policy. Beat you the other guys like element opulent bulletin doctors don't think we don't want just. Think we're endorsing Gregory thing now but to just make sure that you don't give them as much time here's a cookie. All right thank you Greg Greg Norman independent candidate for governor it's 818 now Stephen dead big question. Last night how the shocker is.
