Who will represent the Northland in Kansas City Council’s 1st District at-large seat?

Early voting has begun for the April 4 Kansas City Council primary election, which will eliminate 11 candidates among seven competitive races. At least half of the current City Council will be replaced with fresh faces after this year’s municipal elections, with only six incumbents running to keep their seats.

Among the seven competitive primary races is the 1st District at-large, a position currently held by Kevin O’Neill. He is running against former Clay County Presiding Commissioner Pam Mason and Ronda Smith, who has experience in real estate and accounting.
