Sedgwick County commission may lose conservative majority

KSAL StaffAugust 7, 2016

The Sedgwick County Commission’s conservative majority may not hold together after an incumbent commissioner lost during the primary election.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/2aLOWD5) reports Karl Peterjohn fell Tuesday to David Dennis in the Republican primary.

Peterjohn often voted with Republican commissioners Richard Ranzau and Jim Howell, a former state representative, in more contentious votes.

The three drove the commission to cut funding to several programs, back a resolution seeking to stop people living in the U.S. illegally from receiving in-state tuition, turning away from borrowing for road and bridge maintenance and making cuts to the arts, economic development, recreation and the county health department.

In the general election, Dennis will face Goddard Mayor Marcey Gregory, who is running as an independent.
