A Democrat on the Kansas State Board of Education says she's not seeking re-election this year.
Board member Sue Storm, of Overland Park, said Wednesday she no
longer finds serving on the 10-member board fun and wants more time with her grandchildren. Also, she said she believes her 16 years in public office is enough.
Storm was elected to the board in 2008, after serving 12 years in the Kansas House.
Board members serve four-year terms, and five seats are up for grabs in the November election. Board Chairman David Dennis, a Wichita Republican, also has announced that he is not seeking re-election.
Two other incumbents, Carolyn Campbell, a Topeka Democrat, and Walt Chappell, a Wichita Republican, have filed for re-election.
The candidate filing deadline is Monday.
