TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A northeast Kansas county’s top environmental advocate has been chosen to complete the 13 months left of a state House term of a lawmaker who has resigned.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Eileen Horn was elected to the House’s 10th District seat during a special convention of the district’s committee members Saturday at the Baldwin City library.

The Lawrence-Douglas County sustainability coordinator was selected by an 8-2 vote over Brandon Holland, a 28-year-old University of Kansas student.

Horn will complete the unexpired term of John Wilson, who resigned last month. Wilson announced his support for Horn before the convention and officially nominated her Saturday.

The 10th District includes precincts in southeast Lawrence and southeast Douglas County, including Baldwin City.
