(Kansas City, Missouri) - A panel of outgoing city council members identifies and discusses the most pressing issues going into Kansas City's municipal primary election - less than three weeks away - as the Library's series of Citizens Project forums concludes Wednesday, March 18, 2015.
The event, Primary Perspectives: The Politicos' Take on KC's 2015 Elections, begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St., and is co-sponsored by the nonpartisan Citizens Association.
Dave Helling of The Kansas City Star moderates the discussion. On the panel: current 3rd District council member Melba Curls, 2nd District member Ed Ford, 4th District member Jan Marcason, and 6th District member John Sharp.
All, serving second consecutive four-year terms, are ineligible for re-election.
Kansas Citians go to the polls April 7 and again in the June 23 general election to choose a new mayor and 12 city council members who will direct the city for the next four years. Each Citizens Project forum has featured a lineup of experts discussing what they think should be the candidates' priorities.
Two previous forums, featuring print and broadcast media representatives in January and administrators in February, drew a combined 359 attendees.
A 6 p.m. reception precedes the event. Admission is free. RSVP at kclibrary.org or call 816.701.3407. Free parking is available in the Library District parking garage at 10th and Baltimore.
