WICHITA — When invitations recently went out for the Feb. 11 Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce's annual Chairman's Lunch, three speakers were listed, but only two by name.
Mayor Carl Brewer will speak, as will 2010 Chamber Chairman Sam Williams.
The third speaker is the Sedgwick County Commission chairman, who at the time the invitations were printed was not yet elected.
Now he has been, and it's Karl Peterjohn. As in the same Peterjohn who in 2008 claimed there was a "political jihad" against him by the Chamber and its political action committee.
"I was the No. 1 candidate that the Chamber opposed," Peterjohn says.
"Oh . . . that is all old history," says Chamber president and CEO Bryan Derreberry.
