If you were home Wednesday evening enjoying some of your favorite Kansas City PBS programming (we hope!), you are excused for not attending the Kansas City mayoral debate moderated by KCPT’s own Nick Haines. We also understand if you were otherwise indisposed.

Polls indicate a large chunk of the electorate remains undecided going into the April 2 primary. So, Haines has provided a CliffsNotes version of the hour-long debate in the video above.

For fuller coverage of the debate, tune into our Week In Review special, which airs Friday at 7:30 p.m. on KCPT.

This year’s municipal elections in Kansas City, Missouri, promise sweeping political changes in the metropolitan area’s largest city. A new mayor and a host of freshmen council members will emerge when the final votes are counted in June. Kansas City PBS will focus its election coverage on three topics that these new elected officials will face: affordable housing, violent crime and business tax incentives. We will tell our stories from some of Kansas City’s most hard-pressed neighborhoods. Keep tabs on our coverage by following us on social at #WhoWillLeadKC.
