Political newcomer Ada Linenbroker won her first election Tuesday night, winning 64 percent of the voters in Seward County Commission Dist. 2 Republican primary. She will face Democratic incumbent Joyce Hibler who was unopposed in the Democratic primary.

" I'm excited," Linenbroker said. "I wish more people would get out to vote. In a presidential election year maybe more votes."

Her victory insures that a woman will remain on the Seward County Commission no matter who wins the general election.

"I think it will be an interesting race between me and Joyce," Linenbroker said. "We'll have to see how people vote. She's been in there quite a while. People know her. I hope people will like what I have to say and what I want to do."

Linenbroker, who is running in the district that includes neighborhoods in south Liberal, knocked on doors and campaigned for the first time.

"I thought it was interesting," she said. "I met a lot of people in my neighborhood. On the south end of town we need to get involved. We have just as many issues as anywhere else in the county. A lot of people came up and told me they wish they could have voted for me but don't live in my district."
