Murguia wants four more years in WyCo

A key political player in Wyandotte County has said she wants four more years overseeing the Unified Government.

Ann Brandau Murguia has filed for re-election for a third term as 3rd District commissioner. She won the seat in 2007 and was re-elected in 2011. In 2013, she lost a hotly contested race to Mark Holland for mayor.

Murguia is running on a record of bringing new development to the southern WyCo district. One big piece of that is a $60 million series of developments along Rainbow Boulevard, much in conjunction with the KU Medical Center.

“In the 3rd District we have added hundreds of jobs and provided residents with improved retail opportunities and services,” she said.

She also touted infrastructure improvements, including street and curb work.

Murguia is executive director of the Argentine Neighborhood Development Association and a member of the Kansas Board of Regents.
