Sedgwick County commissioners meet in July 2016.

Sedgwick County will be holding a reception for outgoing Commissioner Karl Peterjohn Wednesday morning.

He’s one of two commissioners who lost re-elections in 2016.

Karl Peterjohn began serving on the Sedgwick County Commission back in 2008. He lost his re-election bid for the 3rd District to David Dennis in the August primary.

Commissioner Tim Norton was the longest-serving county commissioner until November, when Michael O’Donnell won the election to represent the 2nd District.

County spokeswoman Kate Flavin says Norton asked the county not to have a reception for him.

Dennis and O’Donnell will take the oath of office during a public ceremony on Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Jury Room on the 1st floor of the Sedgwick County Courthouse. They begin their four-year terms on the Board of Commissioners on Monday.

Flavin says the county’s clerk, treasurer, register of deeds and sheriff will also be sworn in at that time.
