High standard for recalling elected officials

It was not surprising that District Attorney Marc Bennett determined there were not legal grounds for recalling Sedgwick County Commission Chairman Richard Ranzau. The recall petitioners object to recent commission decisions related to public health. But there is a high bar for recalling elected officials, and such policy decisions – as boneheaded as they were – don’t meet that standard. Those upset at Ranzau and other commissioners should direct their frustration toward future elections. – Phillip Brownlee
