Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark Dupree is facing a reelection challenge from Jackson County, Missouri, prosecutor Kristiane Bryant.

A pair of editorials in the Kansas City Star over the last week highlighted much of the negative feedback that community members have about the Wyandotte County District Attorney's Office under Mark Dupree.

Today the outspoken DA responded to the criticism, and discussed his conduct in office and hopes for reelection.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
The Kansas City region has long been a place where different ways of life collide. I tell the stories of people living and working where race, culture and ethnicity intersect. I examine racial equity and disparity, highlight the area's ethnic groups and communities of color, and invite all of Kansas City to explore meaningful ways to bond with and embrace cultures different from their own.
