Holland, Murguia advance in KCK mayoral primary

Mark Holland and Ann Murguia are the two finalists to become the next mayor/CEO of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County.

Holland had 3,033 votes to Murguia's 1,454.

The two will now square off in the April 2 general election for the right to succeed outgoing Mayor Joe Reardon, who opted not to seek a third term.

Three candidates were eliminated in tonight's vote: veteran commissioner Nathan Barnes and community activists Cordell Meeks and Janice Witt.

Today's vote was hampered by heavy snow that limited the number of voters to 300 by 11:30 a.m. The pace picked up, though, as the day progressed.
