From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 11, 1986:
Two incumbent city commissioners had made their decisions to seek re-election in the 1987 city elections. David Longhurst announced that he would be running for a second term on the commission, citing his support for the city's infrastructure needs, neighborhoods, research and industrial parks and downtown development. Commissioner Ernest Angino had official filed for office earlier this week, saying that his decision was based "pretty much on the idea that there's something to be said for continuity." Both men agreed that a shopping mall was important to the city's future; Angino said he was "committed to trying to see it get in downtown." He also supported building the Lawrence trafficway, saying that it was "an issue Lawrence has to face up to."
