Sen. Oletha Faust-Goudeau to run for county commission

Sen. Oletha Faust-Goudeau, a Democrat, plans to file Wednesday for Sedgwick County commission.

Faust-Goudeau, who has served in the Kansas House and Senate, will run for the 4th District seat being vacated by Kelly Parks, who announced earlier this year that he did not plan to seek re-election.

Faust-Goudeau, 50, said she wants to be able to serve her home community and work on local issues and problems.

Others who have filed for the seat are Republicans Lucy Burtnett and Richard Ranzau and Democrat and Sharon Fearey.
