Seward County Republican chairman Reid Petty responds to Republican sweep in Seward County:

"The Seward County Republican Party is very excited to have a clean sweep in Seward County and the state of Kansas. Our base was energized and we can't give enough props to everyone who helped get out the vote. It's a great night to be a Republican!"
"Our Republican Victory Party at Billys went great. We had over 60 energized Republicans show up and it was great to have our next three County Commissioners in attendance as well."

Seward County Republican Chairman

The Sales tax passes 2,384 to 529, or 82 percent to 18 percent. That means the one cent sales tax will be renewed for another 10 years and will allow the City fo Liberal to invest an estimated $35 million into public works.

Ada Linenbroker wins Seward County Commission seat, 270-116 over incumbent Joyce Hibler (70 percent to 30 percent). "I am excited to win, I am looking forward to working," Linenbroker said. "I hope to do a lot of new things and hope to get a lot of new things started for the county. I have a lot of ideas regarding things I want to do to the fair. I want to try and get it back to being a community event again. Maybe do some things toward the elderly and a lot of things with economic development and maybe getting some more stuff going on in the county. It was a good race, I appreciate what Joyce has done in the past. I am hoping to step in with new commissioners and see what we can get done."
Doug LeFreniere also won his race for Seward County Commissioner 518-370 over incumbent Toby Hale (58 percent to 42 percent). After sitting out two years from serving on the Liberal City COmmission, LaFreniere made the rare move to the Seward County Commission, something that has not been done since Don Rash was elected to the Liberal City Commission in 2006 after a long break from serving on the Seward County Commission in the 1980s.

"This is going to be fun," LaFreniere said. "I want to thank all of the voters that supported me. I intend to do this to the best of my ability and I appreciate all of their support. I would like to thank Toby for all of the years of service he provided. He put his heart and soul into it, and it was a well-run race. I have to educate myself on all of the functions first before I do anything else."
