If this spring's municipal election season were a baseball game, we'd now finally be heading into the bottom half of the 27th inning. Lee's Summit Town Hall hosts Nick Parker & Jason Norbury take one final look at the ballot issues, as well as Board of Education and City Council candidates.
A two-month delay combined with changes to many polling locations has Jason and Nick worried (more than usual) about voter turnout next week. And a conversation about the LSR7 bond issue.
Your weekly quick look into the news, events and happenings from around Lee’s Summit. On this Monday we’re looking at the next phase of reopening for Jackson County, the changing of polling locations for the upcoming election, some new courses through UCM and the City is asking for residents’ input.
Have you seen the new sculptures in downtown? Well, you should! And as we approach the June 2 municipal election, hosts Nick Parker and Jason Norbury continue to revisit City Council candidate interviews. Today, we hear from District 3 candidate Rocco Florio and District 4 candidate Donnie Funk. In case you find yourself wondering why District 3 and 4 incumbents Phyllis Edson and Fred DeMoro aren't interviewed you're not alone. The two would not respond to multiple requests for an interview or to participate in Link 2 Lee's Summit's candidate questionnaire.
