Initiative and referendum in Kansas to be topic

Tomorrow (December 14, 2012) the Wichita Pachyderm Club features a presentation by Robert Parnacott, J.D. He is the Assistant County Counselor for Sedgwick County. His topic is “An Overview of Initiative, Referendum, and Recall in Kansas.”

Kansas doesn’t have initiative and referendum at the state level, but it does at the municipal level, and there was one instance of each this year in Wichita.

The public is welcome and encouraged to attend Wichita Pachyderm Club meetings. Meetings are held almost every Friday in the Wichita Petroleum Club on the top floor of the Bank of America Building at 100 N. Broadway. The program starts at noon, and it is suggested that guests arrive by 11:45 am in order to get their lunch before the program starts. The meeting costs $10, which includes a delicious buffet lunch and beverage. For more information click on Wichita Pachyderm Club.
