Kan. Governor-Elect Kicks Off Inaugural Events

KSCB News - January 5, 2011 8:51 am

Kansas Gov.-elect Sam Brownback is kicking off several days of inaugural events ahead of his swearing-in ceremony, and he has a backup plan if the weather goes bad.

Inaugural events start Wednesday with a blood drive in Hays. It’s part of Brownback’s effort to promote community service.

The big event comes Monday, when Brownback and other officials are scheduled to take their oaths of office on the steps of the Statehouse. But forecasters say there’s a significant chance of snow Sunday night and Monday in Topeka.

Organizers say if the weather gets too bad, the ceremony will be moved into the historic Dillon House, just west of the Statehouse. The home would accommodate only a fraction of the expected spectators. Brownback’s spokeswoman says a decision won’t be made until then.
