Brandon Whipple sworn in as the next mayor of Wichita

Wichita's new mayor got right to work on Monday having high-level talks with state lawmakers even before he was sworn in.

As Brandon Whipple relinquished his seat as a State Representative before making his way to Wichita, he said before he left he talked to high-level economic officials at the state capital about the Spirit Aerosystems layoff announcement. No plans yet have been released for those 2,800 people, but both he and the council he joined agree that jobs are a top priority.

The new mayor spoke to FOX Kansas News at 9 reporter Greg Miller and you can see that story in the video posted above.
