KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A mayoral candidate in Kansas City, Kan., says her dual roles as commissioner for Wyandotte County's Unified Government and as executive director of a neighborhood association have not posed a conflict of interest.

Ann Murguia has served as a county commissioner and as executive director of the Argentine Neighborhood Development Association for nearly six years.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/YMcXek) one of her opponents in the mayor's race, Mark Holland, says those roles constitute a conflict of interest. He says Murguia crossed the line several times in voting for county budgets that sent money to her employer.

But Murguia denies any conflict. She says she asked for ethics opinions from local, state and national officials, and each time was cleared of any conflict and allowed to cast those votes.
