Our questions for the candidates in this fall’s local elections

Curt Skoog (left) and Mike Czinege are vying to replace outgoing Overland Park Mayor Carl Gerlach, who has been in office for 16 years.

Following this summer’s primaries, we asked Shawnee Mission Post and Blue Valley Post readers what issues they wanted to hear the candidates running for local office address as they competed for votes in the November election.

As we have done for a decade now, we’ve taken the input you all sent in and used it to develop questionnaires for the people who want to represent you on local governing bodies — from Overland Park mayor and the JCCC Board of Trustees to the Shawnee Mission Board of Education and the WaterOne board of directors.
