WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – In the race for Sedgwick County Commission, David Dennis has defeated Incumbent Karl Peterjohn.
The final results from Sedgwick County as of 10:44 p.m show David Dennis had 6,050 votes and Karl Peterjohn had 4,778 votes.
KSN News spoke with Dennis who said that voters wanted a change, and someone to listen to them.
“The voters in Sedgwick County want someone who will listen to them, someone who will pay attention to what the issues and their concerns and will take care of the issues that are vital to Sedgwick County,” said Dennis.
Peterjohn tells KSN he is proud of the campaign he ran this year.
“The ideas that we fought for in this campaign, fiscal responsibility, voter empowerment, letting people decide if property taxes should be raised, those issues are alive and well,” said Peterjohn.
Peterjohn says he still has several months left as a county commissioner and hopes to still have some influence over issues coming up before November.
Dennis will now face Goddard Mayor Marcy Gregory in November.
