(ROELAND PARK, KS) – Adrienne Vallejo Foster, a former Mayor of Roeland Park and a Small Business Administration official who is running for Kansas’ Third Congressional district seat, released the following statement today on the upcoming House vote on an impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
“Instead of offering a positive agenda for the 3rd district, Rep. Sharice Davids and her radical allies in Congress are indulging their partisan anger. Washington Democrats decided President Trump’s election was illegitimate the moment he was elected. This partisan vote has nothing to do with the Constitution; it is a pre-ordained conviction in search of a crime.
“This vote will do nothing to create opportunity, lower health care costs or reform our broken immigration system. The voters of the 3rd district deserve better. The House of Representatives was created to be the people’s house, not a partisan law firm for one political party. Davids should vote no on the impeachment inquiry,” Foster said.
Adrienne Vallejo Foster, a second-generation Hispanic from the 3rd district, recently served as the Region 7 Advocate for the Office of Advocacy at the U.S. Small Business Administration. In this role, she worked with small business owners in the 3rd district and the broader Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska region. She worked alongside state and local government agencies, state legislators, and trade associations, to be the voice of small business and to help small businesses overcome burdensome regulations and other roadblocks.
Foster previously served as the Mayor of Roeland Park, KS. She was also the Executive Director of Kansas Hispanic and Latino American Affairs Commission with the Office of the Governor. Foster earned her undergraduate degree from Washburn University, where she studied Public Administration and earned her Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Missouri, Kansas City. Foster and her husband Stephen have five children.
