David G. Alvey has filed for mayor, according to records in the Wyandotte County Election Commissioner’s office.

Alvey currently is a member of the Board of Public Utilities in at-large District 2. He is a former BPU president of the board, and was first elected to the BPU in 2009. He is employed at Rockhurst High School in Kansas City, Mo., where he is the assistant principal. He filed for office on Feb. 6.

The Unified Government mayor-CEO office is expected to attract a lot of attention this year. The filing deadline is June 1 at noon. The primary election is in August and the general election is in November this year.

Incumbent Mayor Mark Holland told the “Ruckus” television show last year that he plans to run for re-election. According to a member of the mayor’s staff, Mayor Holland filed for re-election on Monday, Feb. 6. On Wednesday, the election commissioner confirmed that Holland was the first one to file for mayor this year.

Also filing for the fall city elections, according to records in the election office, were UG Commissioner Mike Kane, who filed for re-election to the 5th District commission seat on Jan. 29, and Mary L. Gonzales, who filed for re-election to the BPU at-large, District 1, position on Feb. 7.

The city and local elections were moved by the state Legislature from the spring to the fall.

    HB 2173, the Bill that was introduced this year to level the playing field between the Woodlands and the Hollywood Casino. The bill if passed would make the State’s take percentage the same for both casino’s. HB 2173 made it out of Committee last week despite the oposition of the UG. If you want the Woodlands open you should voice your support.
