Breaking down the race for Johnson County Commission chair

kansas_city_today_pod_cover.jpg

Two candidates with sharply opposing ideologies on rising property taxes, economic development, climate change and more are competing to be the next chair of the Johnson County Commission.

Johnson County voters on Nov. 8 will have a chance to pick the next chair of the Johnson County Commission. Roeland Park Mayor Mike Kelly and 3rd District Commissioner Charlotte O’Hara are campaigning to fill that seat.

Kelly and O’Hara share their positions on key issues like economic development, property taxes and climate change with Steve Kraske on KCUR's Up To Date.
