Gilstrap removes self from UG vacancy contention

Today the Unified Government Board of Commissioners is interviewing 18 candidates for the vacant At-Large District 1 seat.

They will have one fewer name to consider as they narrow the field down to two before tonight's meeting.

Mark Gilstrap, former Kansas State Senator, has pulled his name out of consideration for the seat. Gilstrap made the announcement prior to the interview portion.

He said he made the decision after praying with his family about the matter. The interview process is still on going and can be watched on UGTV, which is available on Channel 2 if you have Time Warner Cable.
