    The Libertarian Party of Kansas has reserved the large meeting room at the 

    Emporia Public Library

    Emporia, KS 66801

    On Saturday, March, 24th from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public! 

    The LPKS is hosting it's first gubernatorial debate between the declared Libertarian gubernatorial candidates who are filed with the GEC to run for Kansas! We have the large meeting room starting at 12:30, please arrive early out of respect for the debate. 

    By alphabetical order of first name, the three candidates are Ethan Randleas, Jeff Caldwell, and Thomas Padgett. Our moderator is Libertarian Party of Kansas Vice-Chair, Sharon DuBois. This will be fun!

    Tweet at Ethan: @Randleas4Gov 

    From his website, Ethan Randleas, 18, comes from a family that operates a small farm. He has seen what hard work is and what it means to live humbly and appreciate the smaller things in life. Randleas is currently a senior at Wichita Heights, and has already begun to take college courses at Wichita State. He is running to shake up Topeka, breaking up the stranglehold of statism that has began to cast its dark shadow over our great state. He may be young, but that does not mean that he is incapable of serving the people of Kansas.

    Tweet at Jeff @CaldwellforKS

    Caldwell is sick and tired of repressive government operating in secrecy and not representing the people of Kansas. He wants to allow for state-wide ballot initiatives, cut a lot of taxes, and have multiple constitutional ballot initiatives and more! Check out his platform on his website!

    Check out Thomas Padgett's Facebook page here:

    Thomas Padgett, a 20-year-old graduate of Topeka High School, works for a small business. Padgett was frustrated with the 2016 presidential nominees of the Republican and Democratic parties and voted for presidential candidate Gary Johnson. Thomas has felt nagging disappointment with major party candidates for governor. “I felt the two major parties weren’t putting forward candidates that represented me very well,” he said in an interview. “I want to be that third option.”

    The Debate Topics relating to Kansans will be: Education, Economics, and Personal Liberties

    The moderator will collect cards with questions from the crowd before the debate. The moderator will ask those questions if we have cleared all of the questions brought from the LPKS.

    Each candidate will give a three minute introduction. Then each candidate will have one minute to answer each question. If they choose, they will have an option to have a thirty second rebuttal. Each candidate will then have a one minute-thirty second closing statement. 

    You can also email questions you would like to have asked to

    If there is enough time left over, there will possibly be questions open to the public. The public will be allowed to ask a question within a thirty second allotted timeframe.
