This is the third and final set of videos in a three part set of nine videos from a 3rd Distinct Candidate forum held on March 20 at Blue Valley Northwest High School.
The following topics will be discussed below by 3rd District candidates:
- Parents’ Rights
- Repealing Obamacare
- Nation Building
The candidates are (in alphabetical order):
- Daniel Gilyeat (R-Kansas City)
- Nick Jordan (R-Shawnee) [but see Nick Jordan drops out, LJWorld, April 22]
- Dave King (R-Leawood)
- Patricia Lightner (R-Olathe)
- Craig McPherson (R-Overland Park)
- John Rysavy (R-Overland Park)
- Jasmin Talbert (Libertarian-Overland Park
- Kevin Yoder (R-Overland Park)
Each candidate was given one minute to respond to these questions from the audience.
The first candidate to respond was rotated among the candidates by question. The approximate time of each candidate’s response is shown below to help find any particular response.
Parents’ Rights? John Rysavy (0:26), Dan Gilyeat (1:13), Dave King (1:36), Jasmin Talbert (1:57), Patricia Lightner (2:15), Craig McPherson (2:57), Kevin Yoder (3:38), Nick Jordan (4:40)

3rd District Congressional candidates, who either missed this candidate forum, or who have filed to run since that day in March, will be allowed to submit responses of about 150 words (approximately equivalent to a one minute comment), which will be added to the section with the corresponding videos.
Candidates at the forum will be allowed to amend or extend their remarks in writing above if they feel a response needs clarification.
Editor’s Note: YouTube automatically picks the middle frame of a video to be the selected image that is shown, but offers two alternatives. We tried to change the YouTube default selected frame so each candidate would appear at least once in the nine videos. However, YouTube offered no selections for either Jasmin Talbert or Kevin Yoder. We apologize to Talbert and Yoder for not appearing as one of the selected frames, but it was beyond our control without re-editing the videos. We did not select Nick Jordan as one of the selected frames since he is no longer a candidate.
