Congratulations to Wichita’s new mayor, Carl Brewer (in photo), who defeated incumbent Carlos Mayans 61 percent to 37 percent. Wichita City Council winners were Sue Schlapp, Paul Gray and Jeff Longwell. Now Brewer and the Council members must show that they can work together to move Wichita forward.
The tightest Wichita race — and I mean tight — was for the at-large position on the Wichita school board. Incumbent Kevass Harding is ahead of Karl Peterjohn by only 41 votes (out of 36,013 cast) with 46 write-in votes yet to be counted.
