Leawood City Hall is poised for a significant changing of the guard, no matter who wins local elections this November.

Last Thursday, June 1, marked the filing deadline for candidates hoping to run for Leawood City Council and mayor, as well as other municipal and local offices across Johnson County.

Notably, Mayor Peggy Dunn is not running for reelection, opting to step down from the role she’s held for more than a quarter century.
