Sedgwick County Commissioner Gwen Welshimer is postponing her last meeting by a week.
Welshimer, a Democrat who did not win enough votes to keep her District 5 seat on the commission, planned for this week’s meeting to be her last as she prepares to move to California.
But medical issues might keep another commissioner, Kelly Parks, from attending the Dec. 22 meeting, officials said at a meeting with county staff today. So Welshimer has agreed to stay through Dec. 23.
A reception for Welshimer is scheduled for 3 p.m. Wednesday in the basement of the courthouse, 525 N. Main.
