One of our most famous Westport Flea Market regulars is running for Missouri Governor!
Kansas City’s 49th Mayor and former State senator Charlie Wheeler is in the running for Missouri Governor. He was elected to a four-year term in the State Senate in 2002, and served as Mayor of Kansas City from 1971-1979.
Wheeler earned his medical degree from Kansas University and went on to earn his law degree from UMKC. He also served in the Navy and Air Force. You may not know it, but Charlie Wheeler comes into The Flea almost everyday. He’s been a regular for 20 years and his favorite meal on the menu is the hamburger. He even has his very own table dedicated to him!
Next time you’re having lunch at the Flea, stop by and say hi to Mr. Wheeler as he prepares for the upcoming election! The primary is Aug. 2, and the general election is Nov. 8!
