Mayor Carlos Mayans says he’s getting undeserved heat for floating proposals in support of the Museum of World Treasures, Wichita State University football and other projects.
He told The Eagle editorial board that he sees his role as starting a “community dialogue” on important topics, and that he doesn’t consider his ideas the final word.
He also faulted his fellow City Council members for their unwillingness to venture ideas. “Not doing anything is a decision,” he said, “and silence is not an idea.”
So why is the mayor being unusually silent about how to keep the Wranglers baseball team in Wichita?
He said he’s deliberately staying quiet on this issue, forcing his fellow council members to come up with ideas — to “teach them a little lesson about leadership.”
No doubt they appreciate it.
