Waitress Encourages Governor To “Tip Schools”

A restaurant waitress says she left a message for Kansas Governor Sam Brownback on his receipt promoting more funding for schools.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Chloe Hough was working her last shift Saturday night at Boss Hawg’s in Topeka when she waited on the governor. The newspaper said she later posted his receipt on Facebook, showing the line for the tip crossed out and the phrase “Tip the schools” written beside it.

Hough declined to say how Brownback reacted to the receipt.

She said administrators of the restaurant did not know about her plans.

Calls by the Associated Press to the governor’s spokeswoman and the restaurant’s office Sunday were not returned.

Schools across the state are facing tight or reduced budgets under funding changes supported by Brownback.
