The praise was appropriately abundant Tuesday for Wichita City Council member Sharon Fearey, who reached the end of her two-term limit. Few council members have worked harder or with more heart, and her service mattered to Wichita’s parks, arts, downtown and historic preservation. Among the comments by Fearey’s colleagues: “I’ll miss her one-minute tantrums,” said Lavonta Williams, who also expressed gratitude that Fearey shared wisdom and strategies with her. “I think everyone recognizes that Sharon fits that fiery red hair very well,” said Jeff Longwell. “I think over a period of time we’ve actually learned to get along. And that’s a product of evolution,” said Jim Skelton. Janet Miller won last week’s election and succeeds Fearey.
