Father, Son Seek Kansas House Seats

KSCB News - June 14, 2012 8:10 am

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.
