WINFIELD — Women for Kansas-Cowley County (W4K-CC) will hold its December meetup from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Dec. 9 at the Winfield High School cafeteria, located at 300 Viking Blvd.

Duane Goossen


The event, which is co-sponsored by Save our Schools, is free and open to the public.

Duane Goossen, senior fellow at the Kansas Center for Economic Growth (KCEG), will speak about the damage caused to the Kansas economy by years of diminished revenue after the 2012 tax cuts and the steps necessary to restore the state’s financial stability.

“We are very excited to host Mr. Goossen at our December meeting,” said Pam Moreno, one of the co-leaders of W4K-CC.

“The Kansas economy affects every one of us, and we are glad that he is able to make time to visit us in Cowley County and address this critical topic.”

Before joining KCEG, Goossen was a seven-term member of the Kansas House of Representatives and a budget director for 12 years under three different governors.

He graduated from Bethel College in North Newton and holds a master’s degree in public administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

Women for Kansas-Cowley County meets on the second Saturday of each month. All are welcome to attend.
