Sedgwick County Commission Republican candidates to speak


This Friday (July 16) the Wichita Pachyderm Club will feature Republican candidates for the Sedgwick County Commission. While three positions are open, in one position there is no contest in the Republican primary. In district four, the candidates are Lucy Burtnett and Richard Ranzau. In district five, the candidates are Dion Avello, Jim Skelton, and Chuck Warren.

All are welcome to attend Wichita Pachyderm Club meetings. The program costs $10, which includes a delicious buffet lunch including salad, soup, two main dishes, and ice tea and coffee. The meeting starts at noon, although it’s recommended to arrive fifteen minutes early to get your lunch before the program starts.

The Wichita Petroleum Club is on the ninth floor of the Bank of America Building at 100 N. Broadway (north side of Douglas between Topeka and Broadway) in Wichita, Kansas (click for a map and directions). You may park in the garage (enter west side of Broadway between Douglas and First Streets) and use the sky walk to enter the Bank of America building. The Petroleum Club will stamp your parking ticket and the fee will be only $1.00. Or, there is usually some metered and free street parking nearby.

    When will the Sedgwick County GOP examine Lucy Burtnett’s county commission candidacy? In 2006 Lucy ran a write in campaign against the GOP nominee for county commissioner Kelly Parks after losing the primary. That should be enough to disqualify her candidacy completely.

    Lucy voted for a large property tax hike during her two year term as a county commissioner after she was appointed to complete the rest of Carolyn McGinn’s term. Lucy Burtnett is a tax ‘n spend politician who needs to find another career path.
