Robert Peterson: Coming to a median near you

Robert Peterson, a candidate for the Kansas City, Missouri, School Board, doesn’t have a flashy Web site. It’s a bare-bones template with basic information; the kind of thing a high school student could whip up in a few minutes during study hall.

But his online presence does point to one possible advantage: Peterson has some wealthy backers, including influential businessmen James Nutter and Hugh Zimmer.

So it’s little surprise that the retired dentist is the first candidate

to shell out for some campaign yard signs.
