Kris Mbah says he’s running of Mayor of Kalamazoo to transform the city. Under a change in the city charter, voters will elect the mayor separately from six city commissioners in November. 


In November, voters in the city of Kalamazoo will elect a mayor and six members of the city commission. This is the first election since voters approved amendments to the city charter that change the way elections are conducted in Kalamazoo. 

Flags at Kalamazoo City Hall will fly at half-staff Friday to honor former City Commissioner Edgar Gordon.
