Gov. Parkinson endorses senator for Sedgwick County commission

Gov. Mark Parkinson is making campaign calls on behalf of Sen. Oletha Faust-Goudeau, who is seeking a seat on the Sedgwick County commission.

A Democrat, Faust-Goudeau is running for the District 4 seat now occupied by Kelly Parks. Parks, a Republican, is not running for re-election.

Faust-Goudeau is facing former Wichita City Council member Sharon Fearey in the primary.

A spokeswoman for Parkinson said that the governor had known Faust-Goudeau for years and “appreciated her commitment to balancing the budget, protecting education and creating jobs while in the Statehouse. He believes she will continue to serve the people of Sedgwick County well as a county commissioner.”
