KCKCC board member launches write-in campaign


Kansas City Kansas Community College Board of Trustee member Mary Ann Flunder is running a "write-in" campaign in the Kansas Senate District 4 race.

Advertising herself as the "Real Democrat" in the race, Flunder is encouraging voters to write in "Mary Ann Flunder" on the ballot come November.

While Flunder believes she's the real Democrat in the race, there's already one Democrat in the race - Kansas Sen. David Haley.

Haley is the incumbent in the race, while Joe Ward has secured the Republican Party's nomination to take on Haley and now Flunder.

Flunder has served on the KCKCC Board of Trustees since 1991.

She's also served for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the Northeast Optimist Club, Area Agency on Aging, White Church Chapter of the American Association of Retired People, along with the National Federation of Democratic Women.

Flunder's name will not appear on the ballot.

However, voters are allowed to write-in their own selection.
