Commissioner to 4-H’er: Don’t run for my office

In a lighter moment during this morning’s Sedgwick County commission meeting, focused on a public hearing about next year’s recommended budget, two longtime 4-H members spoke about the importance of the Extension Center.

When the two young men, 19 and 18 years old, were finished talking about how 4-H has shaped their lives, commissioner Dave Unruh commended them for their presentation, joking: “Don’t run for my office.”

That drew laughs from the audience.
