Funkhouser Ends Term Proud, Disappointed, Grateful
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – As a new month dawns, Kansas City, Missouri swears in a new mayor - and with the beginning of a new administration comes the end of the old. KCUR's Steve Bell joined outgoing mayor Mark Funkhouser on a chilly, rainy April day for a last conversation from Funk's Front Porch.
Funkhouser leaves office proud of his achievements in putting the city on a more sound financial foundation, frustrated that he couldn't accomplish more, grateful to his family and unsure where the future will take him.
