State Sen. Haley Not Running for KCK Mayor
TOPEKA, Kan. — Kansas State Sen. David Haley, D-Kansas City, has decided not to run for Mayor/CEO of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan., this year.
“After much consideration and with the unique challenges Kansas faces statewide now, I cannot abandon my commitment to continue representing the people of Wyandotte County at the state level,” Haley said in a statement.
“I appreciate the encouragement from throughout our County, but am keeping my promise to serve this term as Senator and not dilute my legislative service with a vigorous local campaign to succeed Mayor Reardon.”
Current Mayor Joe Reardon announced earlier he would not seek a third term.
