FOX4: Oldest living Kansas City mayor recalls last time Chiefs went to Super Bowl
Kansas City's oldest living mayor, Charles Wheeler, has been waiting 50 years for another Chiefs Super Bowl win.
The 93-year-old served as the city's mayor for eight years starting in 1971, just one year after Kansas City became the Super Bowl IV champions. One year later, the Truman Sports Complex, home to the Chiefs and the Royals, opened near I-70 and I-435.
"[Kansas City] was a sleepy little town and needed some awakening--and the Chiefs provided that awakening," Mayor Wheeler said. "Shortly after the Chiefs came the Royals. And now, we have two wonderful teams and are ready to take on the world."
