  1. When Mayor Brewer took over as Mayor in 2007 unemployment in Wichita was under 4%, but over the past 6 years his leadership failures has eroded our tax base and destroyed our work force. Under his reign, there are less high paying manufacturing jobs; more $8 hr telemarketing jobs: more cronyism, and less transparency than ever before. His inept leadership has made a few downtown friends very wealthy, but his legacy will be the lousy economy which he helped to create.
