The state’s biggest publicly owned utility reported more than $600,000 in political spending in 2021, spreading money across the political spectrum.
In a report made to its shareholders, Evergy detailed about $403,000 in political spending for Kansas during the off-election year.
The spending, which is customarily reported by the utility, wasn’t targeted to any one political ideology.
It covered a broad range of groups and candidates with various political leanings, including Republican and Democratic affiliated organizations.
"Like most companies, Evergy builds relationships with public office holders where we do business," said Evergy spokesman Andrew Baker . . .
