Former KCK-Wyco mayor Carol Marinovich and incumbent mayor Joe Reardon endorsed Mark Holland Thursday in the Unified Government CEO/Mayor's race.

"We haven't always agreed on everything. That's going to the be the case with any of the candidates," Reardon said. "I think Mark has shown that he understands that to move the community forward you have to be a collaborator."

Marinovich: "He has the strong leadership to get us through. He looks at the community as a whole and looks big-picture."

Holland, who faces four other candidates in a Feb. 26 primary, said he appreciated the endorsements.

"I'm proud to have the support...of the folks who have really made a difference," he said. "Both of them came up through the grass roots."
