It looks like Michael O’Donnell II, the city’s youngest council candidate, may have to make a trip downtown before the campaigning begins. That’s because he’s still listed as a Bel Aire resident, Sedgwick County Election Commissioner Bill Gale confirmed after a Hall Monitor inquiry.
Gale says his office simply overlooked it. But they’re calling O’Donnell II up to let him know it’s time to update the address or be disqualified. Gale thanked The Hall Monitor for the catch but noted O’Donnell wasn’t the first wrong address candidate.
Turns out King David Davis, who winds up on almost every municipal ballot in recent memory, needed to update his address too.
It’s a tough start for both men, who have each lost bids for mayor in their last attempts.
