BOSTON - March 6, 2018 - PRLog -- Tyler Lee, a Sophomore at Northeastern University, has announced his candidacy for Governor of Kansas in the 2018 election, despite having never even visited the state. The election, having been dubbed "the race with no rules," has gotten constant attention thanks to the lack of qualifications necessary to be Governor in the state, including no requirements of age, residency, or experience.

Lee's platform consists of 5 principles:

1. The fostering of an economic environment that encourages entrepreneurship and small business development. Lee plans to achieve this through expanding the beginning farmer loan program and increasing funding to the nonprofit NetworkKansas.

2. The creation of an online education curriculum for K-12 teachers to be certified in the basics of mental health counseling. By the end of his term, Lee seeks to have every public teacher in the state certified.

3. The dedication of resources towards a more comprehensive and leading STEM curriculum (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in public high schools, and the expansion of STEM related scholarships to the six public state Universities.

4. The creation of a prisoner literacy program and vocational training program, with the goal of cutting Kansas recidivism rate in half, from 33% to 15%.

5. A top to bottom overview of the state's budget looking for inefficiencies that will help pay for these initiatives.

Originally from Los Angeles, Lee is a business major and philosophy minor. Along with attending school, Lee runs two businesses. The first, collaredworkshirts.com, sells dress clothes to college students searching for jobs and internships. The second is Anioval.com, currently in development with plans for a fall launch, and is designed to help parents order clothes online for their children without having to worry if the clothes fit. Lee will be campaigning as a write-in candidate, along with his running mate Ben Rubin, a 20 year old English major at Northeastern.
