Kansas City Week in Review is getting bigger this week.
How about twice as big?
In addition to our regular look at the week's most impactful and confusing stories, we bring you back-to-back mayoral debates.
This may not be a major national election year, but that doesn't mean there aren't crucial issues being decided at the ballot box.
In less than three weeks, voters in Wyandotte County will pick a new leader. Do they want to give David Alvey another term as mayor? Or are they ready to make a change? A former top leader in the Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department is running a robust campaign to unseat Alvey. If elected, Tyrone Garner would be the county's first African American mayor.
There's also a seismic shift in power taking place in Johnson County. After 16 years, Overland Park Mayor Carl Gerlach is calling it quits. City Councilman Curt Skoog and former AMC movie theater executive Mike Czinege are campaigning to replace him.
All four candidates will be hitting the road and heading to the Kansas City PBS studios to talk with Nick Haines in person.
