May 28, 2014 - Richard Files by Petition for Re-election


Richard filed for re-election today at the County Election office.  He filed by petition after collecting 650 republican signatures over the last 5 weeks. By doing so, this saves his campaign $873.

During his first term, Richard has earned the reputation as a hard-working, no-nonsense fiscal conservative who is willing to challenge the status quo.  He has a keen eye for finding unnecessary and wasteful spending and his efforts on behalf of Sedgwick County taxpayers are unprecedented.  A few of his accomplishments include the following:

  • He pushed to sell a cell tower at auction instead of selling it to a hand-picked buyer. Because of this, it sold for $610,000 instead of the proposed $280,000. See article here.
  • His questions about a county plan to remove trees for a Crestview homeowners association saved Sedgwick County taxpayers $47,000. See article here.
  • He challenged a plan by staff to build a concrete and steel bridge at Lake Afton so horses could get to a pasture. This saved $190,000.
  • He lead an effort to base vehicle replacement upon actual repair costs. This extended the life of many county vehicles and saved the County $325,000 in the first year alone.

January 24, 2014 - Richard Announces Re-election Campaign


Richard Ranzau has announced his intent to run for re-election as District 4 County Commissioner. During his first term, Richard has earned the reputation as a staunch defender of the taxpayer and advocate for fiscal restraint and economic freedom.

Despite having achieved some success in the fight for fiscal responsibility, Richard believes there is still important work to be done:

"While we have had some success, the county continues to have a spending problem and there continues to be a lack of critical thinking when it comes to many of our financial decisions."

If elected to a second term, Ranzau is committed to continuing the fight for fiscal restraint and policies that actually work:

"I will continue the fight for our future by encouraging fiscal responsibility and restraint.  I will advocate for policies that promote private sector job creation by focusing on small business  and entrepreneurship rather than failed programs that promote corporate welfare.  We need economic prosperity for everyone, not just for the politically connected."
