Father, Son Seek Kansas House Seats

A father and son are both seeking a seat in
the Kansas House of Representatives.
Ronald Ryckman Sr. and Ronald Ryckman Jr. are running for in
separate legislative districts in this year’s election.
The elder Ryckman lives in Meade and is seeking a second term in
the 115th District. His son, who lives in Olathe, is running in the
78th House race.
The Kansas State Library staff did not have time to research the full history
of the Legislature but said no father-son combination has served at
the same time for at least 30 years.
The elder Ryckman faces Democrat Marjorie Gilbert in the Nov. 6
general election. His son has no challenger because Rep. Bob
Montgomery, an Olathe Republican, moved after redistricting.
