Sedgwick County District II Commissioner Resignation

(Sedgwick County, Kan.) – Commissioner Michael O’Donnell, II, representing Sedgwick County Commission District II, has declared his resignation effective 5:00 p.m. today, November 13, 2020.  “It has been an honor and privilege to serve in the greatest community and work for the wonderful people of Sedgwick County these last four years.  I am proud and humbled by how much we have accomplished, even in unprecedented times, for this region, county, and my district.  Thank you to my parents and family, friends, colleagues, and supporters for your love, guidance, and support.  I look forward to this next journey in my life,” said O’Donnell.     

State statutes and established processes govern the replacement of any vacancy of the County Commission office. If Commissioner O’Donnell does not win the District II election, a replacement will be elected by the Republican precinct committee and be appointed by the Governor to serve until January 10 when the newly appointed Commissioner is sworn into office.  If Commissioner O’Donnell is elected to serve a new term, the Republican precinct committee will elect a new person to fill that vacancy and will be appointed by the Governor.
