"Prosperity" tour brings KS Governor to Holton

(KNZA)--Kansas Governor Laura Kelly was in Holton Friday, continuing her “Prosperity on the Plains” economic development tour.

According to a release from Kelly’s office, she joined leaders of the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce for a tour of a local family, and veteran owned, small business, More Than Lemons Hot Glass.

Kelly, in the release, said the tour allows her to visit with entrepreneurs across Kansas “because small businesses power [the state’s] economy and have helped drive” what she calls “record-breaking economic success.”

During her Friday visit to Holton, Kelly also visited an under-construction mural project located in the Holton Downtown Square. Holton is one of 14 rural communities awarded grants early this month through the Rural Mural and Public Art Program.

The release notes that Kelly has supported small businesses throughout her time in office, signing in June a bill providing $50 million of financial relief to Kansas small businesses. Kelly also reinstated the Kansas Main Street Program in 2019, with 25 communities, including Holton, grandfathered” back into the program to receive resources and tools supporting the revitalization of downtown districts.
