JOHNSON COUNTY COMMISSION
I am humbled to be your choice for Johnson County Commissioner.

The choice you made is clear and I will do my very best to represent my district with honor and integrity. I look forward to taking office in January and serving Johnson County as I have served the Blue Valley School District for so many years. Please know that if you call, I will listen. Thank you again for your support! ...

The Star’s editorial | Choices for Joco panel Steve Klika
Johnson Countians need leaders who will eagerly tackle crucial issues such as how to improve transit in the sprawling county and to efficiently finance top-flight parks and libraries. To help meet that challenge, The Star recommends two candidates in the contested nonpartisan County Commission races on the Nov. 6 ballot.
3rd District — Steve Klika has provided admirable leadership for the Blue Valley School District’s board of education. Klika helped pare recent budgets without weakening the most important driver in the county’s growth — K-12 education. Klika also played a key role in fashioning a visionary and cost-efficient transit plan that could — if properly financed — meet the needs of the county’s growing number of seniors and low-income residents
Opponent Terry Presta, a former state representative from Garden City, sorely lacks Presta’s wide-ranging community involvement.

"Klika has a strong record of service, holding leadership positions on the Blue Valley Board of Education and the board of directors of Johnson County Transit. His passion for better transit could help the county improve this critical service for the growing number of older and lower-income residents."

"I have had the privilege of working with Steve Klika since I was elected to the Blue Valley Board of Education six years ago. As president, Steve was a steadfast leader through very difficult economic and budgetary times. He understands the need for compromise in order to realize the greatest good for the greatest number of people. Steve is an economic conservative who always seeks to ensure that we live within our means, while at the same time looks for new opportunities to improve and enhance our schools. Steve will be a great addition to the Johnson County Commission and I know will be a friend to education."
-Tony Thill, president, Blue Valley Board of Education
