Last night’s election results brought good news for Kansas.
Hundreds of Democrats were elected to city councils and water districts and school boards and other local offices. These are non-partisan elections, and the decisions the election winners will make in office won’t (and shouldn’t) be about partisan gain, but rather about serving their communities. Serving our communities is a core value of the Democratic Party, so I am rightfully excited and proud of the work done to give our friends and fellow Democrats a chance to serve in local elected office.
We are still tallying all the results, and some races are so close that we will have to wait for provisional ballots to be counted before we know the outcome, but it is safe to say that yesterday we elected more Kansas Democrats than ever before in a single election.
