As you may have noticed, posts are appearing on Prairie Politics for the first time in months.
This is because control of this website has been passed on. Sean Wardwell, who created this website and developed it to the premiere resource for District 1 news during the 2010 election, has left The Sentinel for new opportunities. I have taken his place in McPherson, and have decided to revive this website, making it a place where those seeking information about Kansas politics can turn.
The needs for such a resource are clear. There are simply no options for individuals wanting to stay afloat on the politics of the Kansas plains. Likewise, there is nowhere that people can turn to discuss politics issues and hear differing points of view from those in regional communities.
Changes to the site have already begun. Those who visited in months past will notice a new appearance to the site which should better highlight recent news stories and keep visitors better informed about political events. These changes will continue over the next few weeks, making this website as accessible and user friendly as possible.
In addition, information will be posted soon that will allow visitors to submit their own content to be published on the site. The goal of Prairie Politics is dialogue, and as such everyone should have the opportunity to speak out. Keep your eyes on the home page in the next few days for information on how you can see your own comments and opinions appearing prominently on our pages.
Thank you very much for your continued support, and I look forward to sharing in the diverse political scene of Kansas with you all.
