We continue with final segment on Governor Sam Brownback’s visit and address to St. John’s High School on Tuesday.
After addressing the group as a whole, the Governor took several questions from students ranging from the youngest among them to high school students as well as adults and members of the media. He answered questions for the better part of 30 minutes.
One very young student asked if he ever feared for his safety. Brownback shook his head and said, “No, that’s why I’ve got this guy over here” as he pointed out his security detail. The State Trooper in a dress suit waved and drew a round of laughs.
The Governor was asked to speak on the sort of political limbo he finds himself in while awaiting possible confirmation of the diplomatic position for which he will resign as Governor to take, and what his focus is in Topeka as it has been reported by some media outlets that he has turned over some of his responsibilities and budgetary authority to Lt. Governor Jeff Colyer.
One of the best questions posed to Brownback was by a high school student. She asked if the Governor’s religious beliefs ever came into conflict with things he had to do or policies he had to make.
