MISSION HILLS, Kan. —With the general election less than three weeks away, FOX4 is working to help voters get a better idea where candidates stand on issues impacting residents in the metro.
In Mission Hills, Barbara Nelson will go toe-to-toe with incumbent Bill Bruning to fill the At-Large seat on the Mission Hills City Council.
FOX4 sent out a questionnaire to candidates in more than 50 races in Johnson County. FOX4 did not receive a response from Nelson. Here’s a look at what Bruning had to say:
Q: Why are you running for a seat on the city council?
Bruning: I believe every citizen must be responsible for and engaged in improving our community.
Q: What do you feel will be the biggest challenge to the city in the next 10 years and how should it be addressed?
Bruning: Managing change in building patterns and the problems they create: e.g., significantly larger houses creating storm water run-off issues.
Q: What changes, if any, would you like to see in the city budget?
Bruning: The Mission Hills budgeting process is comprehensive and has led to a very responsible budget. I wouldn’t change anything.
