The Wichita City Council primary election would have risked record-low turnout even if it hadn’t coincided with more heavy snow. But the election promises to be decisive for how city government uses economic incentives, revitalizes downtown, improves bus service, and delivers public services in a time of tight revenues. Those in districts 3, 4 and 6 who didn’t vote in advance and who can reach their polling place safely Tuesday should vote.

The top two finishers in each district will advance to the April 2 general election. Area voters should consult the 2013 Primary Voter Guide that appeared in the Feb. 17 Eagle or visit the online version at Kansas.com to learn about the candidates, races and issues. The Eagle editorial board’s endorsements for Wichita City Council are as follows (find full endorsements at Kansas.com/opinion):

District 3: James Clendenin

District 4: Joshua Blick

District 6: Janet Miller
