Olathe, Kan. (PRWEB) January 16, 2008
Greg Orman, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Kansas, recently launched his official campaign website, http://www.voteorman.com , which features Web 2.0 technology and social networking pages. Supporters can view Orman's stance on important issues from healthcare to the economy and subscribe to his frequently updated video and text blogs.
Orman, an Olathe businessman and entrepreneur, filed his Statement of Candidacy with the Federal Elections Commission in December, making him an official United States Senate candidate in the 2008 Kansas Election.
Orman said his decision to run was driven by a deep concern for the path the country is on. "We have serious issues that need to be addressed, but unfortunately our current leaders in Washington are failing to take the steps necessary to tackle these difficult issues," said Orman.

Orman founded Environmental Lighting Concepts (ELC) with the mission to help businesses become more energy efficient. While Orman was at the helm of ELC, the company installed energy-saving lighting systems that have led to a cumulative reduction of more than one million tons of emissions - roughly equivalent to removing 20,000 automobiles from the road forever.

In 1997, Orman moved ELC to Kansas and sold 70 percent of the company to KLT Energy Services Inc., a subsidiary of Kansas City Power & Light. Orman agreed to join KLT as an executive focused on new business development. Since joining KLT and subsequently leading his own company, Denali Partners, Orman has directly assisted numerous small businesses in their efforts to grow and compete in the global marketplace.
