Ellinwood Legislator To Resign

KSAL StaffFebruary 24, 2015

A central Kansas man serving his first term in the Kansas House says he plans to resign this week because of health problems.

Rep. J. Basil Dannebohm, a Republican from Ellinwood, says he has early-onset Parkinson’s disease. He says since being sworn in on Jan. 12, he has found the pace of the Legislature exhausting and is growing weaker.

The 33-year-old Dannebohm plans to retire Friday.

Republican precinct committee members in the 113th district will meet in March and choose a successor. The 113th District covers all of Pratt and Stafford counties and parts of Barton, Rice and Pawnee counties.

The successor would complete Dannebohm’s term, which ends in January 2017.
