Newspaper editorial boards aren't lamenting Rob Siedlecki's decision to resign as secretary of the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. The Lawrence Journal-World editorial said that Siedlecki hatched reforms "without consulting either the people who would have to implement his plans or the people who would be directly impacted by them." The Hays Daily News described Siedlecki as a "hatchet man" who decimated SRS. "The euphoria of short-term savings eventually will be outweighed by much larger costs down the road taking care of the neediest Kansans," it said. The Winfield Daily Courier said that Siedlecki's initiatives weren't necessarily wrong but were "ill-vetted" and "ham-handed."
