Welcome to the KDP Weekly Rundown – the Kansas Democratic Party’s update of the biggest things going on in the state party and the state government. What are we focused on this week? The Cedar Crest Christmas tree, 2019 election certification, and executive appointments!

KELLY WELCOMES RESIDENCE CHRISTMAS TREE

  • What’s happening?

Gov. Laura Kelly welcomed Santa and the annual horse-drawn delivery of a Christmas tree to Cedar Crest Tuesday.

Gov. Laura Kelly: “To actually be a part of it is really very special. I get to do a lot of things as governor, but I haven’t been able to do anything that’s this much fun.”

2019 ELECTION RESULTS CERTIFIED

  • What’s happening?

The Kansas State Board of Canvassers on Monday certified the 2019 election results for the constitutional amendment on how the Census is conducted. Kansas voters amended the state constitution to no longer remove some college students and military members from Census results before drawing legislative districts.

The board, comprised of Gov. Kelly, Secretary of State Scott Schwab, and Attorney General Derek Schmidt, finalized the approval of the constitutional amendment on the Census.

Municipal election results are certified by local election officials.

KELLY APPOINTS EXECUTIVE OFFICIALS

Gov. Kelly announced appointments on Monday to the Kansas Board of Healing Arts, Western Invasive Species Council, and United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The officials are not subject to Senate confirmation.
