Race for mayor to be only contested position
It appears the only contested race in Basehor this spring will be for mayor after the filing deadline passed at noon Tuesday.
Incumbent David Breuer is running against Alan Townsend, Scott Kendrick and former City Council member Fred Box.
Council members Brian Healy and Ty Garver are running for re-election unopposed, as are Richard Zamora, Jr., Position 5 school board member, and Shelley Stevens, Position 4 school board member.
Linwood resident Spencer Fritz has filed to run for Position 6 school board member, which is currently held by Gary Johnson. After 8 years on the board, Johnson decided not to run for re-election, he said.
