KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KMOX) – A couple hundred children stood in the cold and the wind Saturday waiting for Kansas City’s mayor-elect to show up so they could start their Easter egg hunt. 

Starting time was 11.am but the mayor wasn’t there. 

Organizers held off the hunt for an hour-and-a-half until Jackson County Sheriff Mike Sharp took command and ordered the hunt to begin anyway.   It did, and Kansas City Mayor-Elect Sly James did finally show up. 

He said nobody told him the starting time.
