Sedgwick County commissioners are expected to elect a new chairman today.
The five commissioners choose a new chairman annually. Dave Unruh, who represents the northeast part of the county, will pass the gavel to one of the other four.
Chairman pro tem Tim Norton, who represents the south-central part of the county, traditionally would be in line for the job. A majority of commissioners bypassed him the last time he was chairman pro tem, choosing instead to name Karl Peterjohn the chairman for 2010.
