KANSAS CITY, Missouri - Tuesday night at the Uptown Theater, the Broadway Westport
Council hosted a mayoral debate between candidates Mike Burke and
Burke and James are both attorneys, both friends, both
democrats, both Kansas City natives and both view many city issues
the same way. Because both candidates are so similar, some voters
said they’re having a tough time choosing a candidate to
Ezekiel Amador and his wife Billie said it was important to hear
both men speak publicly to make the right choice.
“We have been comparing notes and saying who do you think,
who do you think? So during this whole hour and half that's what we
have been doing,” said Ezekiel Amador.
His wife agreed it’s been a tough choice, but she said
that’s not a bad thing because in the end there will be a
certain change in administration.
“I think because they are so similar it's not difficult,
personally yes but in the end it will be fine either way,”
said Billie Amador.
For Richard Heinze, "They did seem to have similar positions
tonight, so since they are alike on a lot of issues it may come
down just one or two small things.”
