2019 Mayor and City Council Elections in KCMO

On June 18th KCMO voters will elect a new Mayor and City Council. We've made a lot of progress towards a city that is walkable and bikeable, but we still have a long way to go. This next Mayor and Council will be critical for accelerating the pace of change in Kansas City.

Candidate Forum: Monday June 18th. 6:30 pm at the Plaza Library. Meet the candidates and hear what they think about transit, walking, and biking. Read more.

BikeWalkKC offered all candidates the opportunity to review our 2019 Policy Platform and to respond to our candidate questionnaire. Click on a candidate's name to see their responses. Those indicated by *asterisks did not respond to our candidate questionnaire.
