Interviews with 2019 Mayoral Candidates

  • Symington Elementary 6th grade students recently interviewed ten of the candidates vying to be the next mayor of Kansas City, Missouri.

    The students’ questions focused on important issues that impact the Hickman Mills C-1 School District community including financial resources, health care, safety, neighborhood revitalization, and education.


    Students then edited video of the interviews and used green screen technology to produce a final product.

    HMC-1 staff and students district wide are watching the videos and participating in a mock election April 1 and 2, 2019.

    The community is also invited to view candidate interviews.

Questions for Candidates

    2. What do you feel are the top three priorities you would seek to address if elected mayor that would positively impact the Hickman Mills School District?

    3. What can be done at the City level to impact the Hickman Mills District community's overall sense of safety as well as to open the lines of communication between the Mayor's office and our families?

    4. How would you address funding of revitalization of homes in our District, sidewalks, playgrounds, and recreational opportunities for the community's citizens?

    5. What can be done to address funding of small business owners in the area as well as attracting larger businesses which would help to support the District financially?

    6. What is the one thing you could do as mayor of Kansas City that would have the greatest impact on academic achievement in the Hickman Mills School District?

    7. Would you like to provide any other comments to help our community make our best decision on the election of the next mayor?
