I would like to take the opportunity to publicly thank Rob Wasinger for his support of Sunflower Electric Power Corporation and the Holcomb Expansion Project. As Chief of Staff in U.S. Senator Brownback's office, Rob has been helpful to Sunflower as we worked to develop this project.

The Holcomb Expansion Project will be a boost to the Kansas economy for many years as Kansas businesses have the opportunity to provide services or product to the project, Kansans can work to construct the project, and the permanent jobs created in Kansas will be a permanent boost to the economy.
