In Remembrance of AJ Kotich

It is with deep regret that I inform you of the passing of AJ Kotich on October 20, 2015.

As you know AJ was the Democratic Party nominee for Attorney General during which he ran a great campaign focusing on the Democratic Party principals. AJ was very passionate about his service to the people of Kansas.

Weekly Wrap-Up

Today is a kind-of-sad day all around…the news from the legislature is depressing, Governor Brownback is still in charge, and today is Jason Perkey’s last day as Executive Director of the Kansas Democratic Party.  The good news is that the Party elected a fine leadership team at Washington Days, county chairs are organizing events in their counties and everyone is looking towards the election in 2016.
