Sedgwick County election commissioner resigns
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Sedgwick County Election Commissioner Angela Caudillo has resigned after less than two years on the job, the Secretary of State's office said Friday.
“Angela faithfully served Sedgwick County and the state, and we are grateful for her knowledge and skill in administering safe and secure elections,” Scott Schwab said in a release.
The release said Caudillo led the election office through challenging times, often with limited resources and funding from the county commission.
“When resources and needs are not met, and the political environment toward election officials is hostile, we lose talent. It is hard to see a good public servant leave,” Schwab said.
A statement on behalf of Sedgwick County said county commissioners consistently supported the Elections Office while Caudillo was commissioner. That support included a budget increase of $400,000 between the 2020 and 2022 election years.
Caudillo joined the elections office after working as the operations manager for COMCARE of Sedgwick County, the Sunflower State Journal reports.
Schwab said details regarding the process of selecting another election commission would be announced in the coming days.
