Kansas inaugural festivities to have familiar feel

KSAL StaffJanuary 3, 2015

Festivities leading up to Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s swearing-in for a second term should have a familiar feel to them.

The Republican governor’s inaugural committee is sticking with the template from his first inauguration four years ago.

Community service events next week will lead up to a Saturday night dinner and ball in Topeka, followed by a Sunday prayer service in Wichita and the swearing-in ceremony Jan. 12 at the Statehouse.

The inaugural committee expects costs to be in line with the $396,000 from Brownback’s first inaugural, and it also anticipates raising enough money from private contributions and ticket sales to make significant donations to charities. Four years ago, Brownback’s committee donated more than $150,000.

Spokesman John Milburn said a modest inauguration is appropriate for Kansas.
