On Thursday, Cindy Claycomb announced her candidacy for Wichita City Council District 6. The area covers north central Wichita and Old Town.
After a five-week exploratory campaign, Claycomb says she’s ready to serve and move Wichita forward in a fiscally responsible manner.
Claycomb is President of the Wichita Board of Park Commissioners and is on the City Council's District 6 Advisory Board. She is also an assistant to WSU President John Bardo.
She says she’s already received an outpouring of support from the district and beyond. According to her campaign, more than 150 Wichitans have already declared their backing for Claycomb, with more than 100 pledging to volunteer. Her campaign has raised $30,000 so far.
Claycomb would replace Vice Mayor Janet Miller who is finishing out her final term on the city council.
