They call him "Brownie.." But he won't become a Councilman. David Brown told 13's Ralph Hipp he's ending his campaign for Topeka City Council District 1 after finishing far behind challengers Karen Hiller and Shawn Leisinger in the recent primary.
Aside from a dismal 13% voter turnout, Brown says "money still controls the process," and he "doesn't have it." Brown said he was surprised by the thousands of dollars being raised to run in several of the council districts.
He vowed to support Leisinger in the April 7th general election and will campaign for him when the opportunity presents itself.
