TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The top Democrat in the Kansas House has apologized to fellow Democrats and asked how he can improve next session. The Wichita Eagle reports that House Minority Leader Tom Burroughs, of Kansas City, wrote his 28-member caucus after the longest session in the state's history. Burroughs was in his first year as minority leader last session. Burroughs sometimes irked elements of the Kansas Democratic Party who wanted him to take a stronger stance against Governor Sam Brownback and majority Republicans. In the letter, which was obtained by The Eagle, Burroughs says he apologizes if he "fell short of your expectations." He says he's committed to continued improvement and welcomes feedback. He also promises to meet with House Democrats in the coming months to set policy goals for the next session.
