Mayor Sly James Endorses Sharice Davids

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Kansas City Mayor Sly James has endorsed Sharice Davids for Congress in Kansas’ Third Congressional District race.

Throughout his two terms in office, Mayor James has been a champion for education and revitalization in Kansas City, Mo. His work to support local businesses downtown has spurred economic growth and help bring good-paying jobs to our communities, benefitting both Missouri and Kansas.  

“I’m proud to support Sharice Davids for Congress,” said Mayor James. “I appreciate her position on critical public policy issues, especially her plans to increase access to educational opportunities for all Americans. She knows first-hand how education can transform lives and I believe she will do all that she can to help others realize their potential.”

Davids wants to invest more in our schools and will never support giving big tax breaks to corporations and the wealthiest one percent that will be paid for by slashing education budgets. Mayor James’ endorsement puts the support of the larger Kansas City area behind Davids as she looks to the November election.

“We need strong leadership on both sides of the state line to ensure everyone has the opportunity to succeed,” Davids said. “I appreciate the support of Mayor James and look forward to working with him to improve our communities.”
