Candidate's Favorite Books: Lynn Jenkins

This election season, we're asking candidates the hard-hitting question "What is your favorite book?" We asked all candidates appearing on the ballot for state and local office. As the election nears, we'll post their answers here.

Lynn Jenkins, Republican from Topeka, currently represents Kansas' 2nd District in the US House of Representatives. Her favorite book is The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas Stanley and William Danko.

"I'm a CPA by trade and thus, I'm a numbers gal. The authors of The Millionaire Next Door interview millionaires to determine how a normal person can build wealth. Its not a get-rich-quick scheme, it's smart, everyday, long-term financial advice. Saving instead of buying; Paying cash instead of buying on credit...the sort of lessons we all should learn, including our federal government."

Inclusion on this blog does does not constitute an endorsement of a candidate by the library. However, we do endorse the books they've chosen.
