TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – The primary election for Topeka’s next mayor is less than a month away.
Mayoral Candidate Mark Weiser has been meeting with people across the city. He’s been a Marine, an Army Reserves military police officer, a sheriff’s department sergeant and a nurse.
Weiser said the 25 years he spent as a nurse have taught him to listen to people’s concerns.
“If any citizen comes up to me and asks me questions, I’ll listen to them. Together we’ll come up with a solution and try to implement it.”
He wants to improve education, develop businesses and increase safety.
Weiser will face four opponents in the primary on August 1, 2017.
