He announced on social media Saturday that he will not accept a second term representing the 2nd District should he be reelected Tuesday. He did not resign from his current term, which ends in January.

Sedgwick County commissioners formally asked their colleague Michael O’Donnell to resign immediately due to his actions involving a negative campaign video last year.

Commissioners adopted a resolution Wednesday that censures O’Donnell and calls for him to decline a second term representing the 2nd District should he win re-election next week.

The attorney for Sedgwick County Commissioner Michael O’Donnell says a civil lawsuit filed against O’Donnell and two other elected officials is frivolous and won’t be successful in court.

Mark Schoenhofer contends in a court filing that Wichita Mayor Brandon Whipple filed the lawsuit with the main objective of impacting the results of the Sedgwick County Commission 2nd District election.

O’Donnell, a Republican, is seeking a second term representing the 2nd District. His opponent is Democrat Sarah Lopez.

A panel of Sedgwick County leaders dismissed an effort to remove a Democratic candidate from a Sedgwick County Commission race.

The panel of three officials ruled Monday that Sarah Lopez will remain on the ballot for the 2nd District county commission seat. She is running against Republican Michael O’Donnell, who is seeking a second term.

Former O’Donnell campaign worker John Whitmer, a Republican, filed an objection with the county election office last week questioning whether Lopez lived in the 2nd District.
