KC Mayoral Candidate Sly James


KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Primaries for Kansas City's next mayor are in just a month. Seven people are vying for the position, including current mayor Mark Funkhouser. All are hoping to lead the city through a challenging time - the city's grappling with a down economy and continuing violence.

As part of KCUR's special election coverage, we'll be talking with each of the candidates about their visions for the city. And we'll be doing so at a place of their choosing, one that to them is quintessentially Kansas City. In this first installment, KCUR's Elana Gordon met up with Kansas City native and former metropolitan bar association president Sly James.

Extended Transcript soon to be posted.
