County, city leaders write columns in “Kansas Liberty Freedom Express News”

Two Sedgwick County commissioners — Karl Peterjohn and Richard Ranzau — and Wichita City Council member Michael O’Donnell wrote columns this month in “Kansas Liberty Freedom Express News,” an eight-page conservative publication.

Peterjohn wrote about the county’s jail and efforts to make the county more transparent by publishing its “checkbook” online at Ranzau railed against a sustainable communities grant that the Regional Economic Area Partnership received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

O’Donnell wrote about developments in south Wichita.

Peterjohn said the publication was the work of Craig Gabel, a Wichita restaurant owner who ran unsuccessfully for a county commission seat in 2008.
