WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - A small group of protesters gathered outside of Wichita Mayor Brandon Whipple’s home earlier Saturday to protest the city’s mandatory face mask ordinance.

The mayor shared the sign and cooler on social media, saying in part, “I love our constitution and I am thankful for the right to peacefully protest. This is Independence Day, Chelsea and I get to talk to our children about the First Amendment.”
