City Council Candidates' Final Push Before Election

Kansas City, Mo., City Hall.


Kansas City, Mo. – Pundits are saying the election of Kansas City's mayoral race could be the most important in a generation. But we have what's called a "weak" mayor system here, so almost as important are the 12 city council members. KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross takes a look at the six at-large races, in which all Kansas Citians vote.

More information about all the candidates for the city council, and mayor, can be found at the Midwest Democracy Project.
