Former Kan. Gov. Finalist for Time Person of Year

KSAL StaffDecember 10, 2013

Feelings are mixed in Kansas over the inclusion of former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as one of 10 finalists for Time magazine’s Person of the Year award.

Democratic Kansas House member Jim Ward told the Wichita Eagle it’s an honor for everyone whenever someone from the state is recognized for influencing major world events.

But Republican Rep. Brenda Landwehr called the selection ridiculous and said she couldn’t think of anyone less deserving for the award.

Sebelius serves as U.S. secretary of Health and Human Services. She has been in the spotlight since the Oct. 1 problems with the launch of the national health care website.

Other finalists include Pope Francis, Texas tea party Republican Ted Cruz, performer Miley Cyrus and whistleblower Edward Snowden.
