Kansas Board Of Education Finally Elects New Chair
01/13/2011
 

After two days of debate and six ballots,
the Kansas State Board of Education finally has its new chairman.
     David Dennis, a Wichita Republican, was elected Wednesday on a
6-4 vote, ending an impasse that developed Tuesday as the board
reorganized its leadership.
     Dennis, a teacher and former Air Force officer, replaces Kansas
City Democrat Janet Waugh.
     The 10-member board was still at odds over who should be vice
chairman. The election of Dennis had been deadlocked at 5-5 after
the board couldn't decide, in separate votes, between Republicans
Jana Shaver of Independence, Sally Cauble of Liberal and Ken
Willard of Hutchinson.
     In 2003, the board took seven ballots to elect a chairman when
it was divided among conservatives and a coalition of moderate
Republicans and Democrats.
