Forum for Wichita mayor, council candidates to be held Feb. 10

WICHITA — A public forum sponsored for candidates for mayor and the Wichita City Council will be held at 7 p.m. Feb. 10 at Mike's Steak House, 2131 S. Broadway.

The Kansas Republican Assembly is sponsoring the forum. Afterward, assembly members will meet to vote on which candidates it will endorse.

The forum is for all candidates except those running for the council's Distrcit 5, because there is no primary for that district.

Mark Gietzen is president of the assembly and also a council candidate for District 3. He said he would leave the room when the voting is conducted on the District 3 endorsement.

Seats for districts 2 and 4 are also on the primary ballot. The primary is March 1; the general election is April 5.
