Ann Murguia’s shoving case finally comes to an end

  • Justice finally arrived for Murguia.

After 17 months, the case of who shoved Wyandotte County commissioner, executive director of the Argentine Neighborhood Development Association and failed mayoral candidate Ann Murguia in the back has finally ended. The nearly year-and-a-half-long saga began in March 2012 during a community meeting at the Argentine Civic Center. Murguia claimed that somebody shoved her in the back, and when she turned around, she saw Diana Aguirre, a member of the United Government’s Ethics Commission.

Murguia ran for Wyandotte County CEO/mayor against fellow commissioner Mark Holland. Holland won handily 56 percent to 43 percent. Aguirre was found guilty of battery in municipal court and appealed. This week, she was found guilty in district court. She will pay court costs and a $150 fine.
