At a reception for county commissioners, new chairman of the Sedgwick County Commission Karl Peterjohn answers a reporter’s questions.
A note to readers: I served as co-manager of Peterjohn’s campaign in 2008.
Yesterday members of the Sedgwick County Commission unanimously elected Karl Peterjohn to be their chairman.
Citizens of Sedgwick County should appreciate Peterjohn’s first year of service, just concluded, where he often asked questions from the bench that no one else asks — or even thinks of asking. In the coming year we should benefit from Peterjohn’s leadership, which will be especially important as the county navigates what is sure to be a difficult year financially.
GO KARL. Stay after tax increases. Thanks
Sedgwick County taxpayers are truly blessed (obviously they voted correctly) to have an intelligent, educated, thoughtful man like Karl looking out for our interests on the commission. Everyone–even Karl’s biggest critics during the campaign–are figuring this out.
The is no question in my mind that Mr. Peterjohn has the intellect, education and training to do a great job, unfortunately politics is not always about truth, logic and facts. I wish him the best!
Good going Karl. The people of Sedgwick County have a great new leader.
KARL PETERJOHN——————————— I SURE HOPE YOU ARE NOT PLANNIG TO GIVE OUR TAX PAYER DOLLARS TO HAWKER. THE COMPANY WAS BOUGHT AT A HIGH PRICE AND THEIR MARKET WENT TO HELL. THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM OF THE TAX PAYER. THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH OTHER STATES STEALING OTHER STATES MANUFACTURING JOBS AT THE EXPENSE OF THE TAX PAYER. WE CANNOT COMPETE WITH MEXICO AND CHINA, BUT SHOULD NOT COMPETE WITH OTHER STATES. IF HAWKER THINKS THE GRASS IS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FENCE LET THEM GO. THEN WE CAN TRY AND SELL THE PLANT TO ANOTHER MANUFACTURE. BUT TELL DAVE UNRUH WE ARE GIVING OUR TAX MONEY.
Carlos Mayans said, “politics is not always about truth, logic and facts.”
And, don’t you know all about that!
