Fall 2006 WSU Rim Rats

Fall 2006 WSU Rim Rats

This morning's Eagle had profiles on three candidates for the 4th District Sedgwick County Commission race. The profiles were on the Democrat and Republican candidates (Michael Kinard and Kelly Parks), but also included Lucy Burtnett, a current commission member who was appointed to fill an unexpired term. She lost in the Republican primary to Parks, but is conducting a write-in campaign. Not included was another Republican, Robert Davis, who also lost in the primary to Parks, but is conducting a write-in campaign. Why did The Eagle include only one write-in candidate when both Burtnett and Davis officially announced they were campaigning as write-ins? Incidentally, KMUW allowed Kinard and Parks an opportunity to read a three-minute statement one morning, then followed the next morning with statements of equal time for Burtnett and Davis.
