Mike Boehm, Lenexa’s longest-serving mayor, says he will not run for a sixth term later this year. 

During his 20 years leading the city, Boehm oversaw rapid growth and change in Lenexa, particularly the establishment of a new and centralized “downtown” area at Lenexa City Center near I-435 and West 87th Street Parkway.
