Several seats on the Jackson County Legislature are open on the August 5 ballot.
Jackson County Legislature candidates answered questions during a forum Monday night.
Candidates running for District One – At Large include Royals Hall of Famer Frank White and Kansas City Fire Captain Sherwood Smith.
“I’m so used to hearing positives about myself, and this is the first time I’ve heard a few negatives about myself,” White said.
“I’m on the KC Fire Department for 36 years. I’ve been captain for 26 years, and that job itself incorporates being a people person,” Smith said.
Monday night’s forum was organized by the South Kansas City Alliance.
