Sedgwick County Health Draws Scrutiny

KSAL StaffNovember 23, 2015

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett has blocked a recall effort against a county commissioner who has refused to accept millions of dollars in grants for local health programs.

Bennett announced Monday that the petition for an election seeking the recall of Sedgwick County Commissioner Richard Ranzau does not meet the narrow grounds prescribed by state law.

He told reporters that the remedy prescribed by law when someone disagrees with an elected official is the ballot box.

The petition contends Ranzau failed to fulfill his legal duties to contract for the protection and promotion of public health.

Ranzau says the DA’s decision is a victory for taxpaying American citizens and legal immigrants.

The director of the citizens group who filed the petition says they are disappointed.
