If you want to think about it this way — and we have — choosing a mayor is a lot like the hiring process. And on Tuesday, voters in Kansas City, Missouri, will decide whether they want to hire Jolie Justus or Quinton Lucas.

Flatland has put together a short primer on the in’s and out’s of being the mayor of Kansas City, including how much the job pays. (hint it’s a six-figure income, not including perks and freebies). Keep watching to the end to find out about the Kansas City PBS debate airing Friday.

This year’s municipal elections in Kansas City, Missouri, promise sweeping political changes in the metropolitan area’s largest city. A new mayor and a host of freshmen council members will emerge when the final votes are counted in June. Kansas City PBS will focus its election coverage on three topics that these new elected officials will face: affordable housing, violent crime and business tax incentives. We will tell our stories from some of Kansas City’s most hard-pressed neighborhoods. Keep tabs on our coverage by following us on social at #WhoWillLeadKC.
