After Submitting Petitions, Boyda Forced to Pay Filing Fee

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ So it had to pay the full fee to the secretary of state's office. That's $1,672.

Boyda, a Democrat, is seeking a second term in the Second District of eastern Kansas.

Her campaign gathered about 2,900 signatures and submitted them to the secretary of state's office last month.

State law requires about 2,400 signatures from registered Democrats.

When the signatures were examined, the campaign had fallen short.

Had the effort been successful, the state would have waived all but $20 of the fee.

Still, campaign spokesman Thomas Seay (SAY) said today it was
pleased with the effort.
