When I think of Kansas City, I think about…

Fountains! There are a bunch of them.

The biggest issue facing local government is…

Bridging the gap between not only city staff and elected officials, but between the public, as well. So like a tri-bridge.

My pro tip for getting the most out of professional conferences…

Don’t skip the sessions, but don’t skip the one-on-one time, either. I have made so many great connections through ICMA and most of them were spontaneous lunches or coffee breaks.

If I had to create a presidential ticket with my top two mentors, I’d select…

As a KUCIMAT, I would nominate John Nalbandian and Jean Ann Pike, former director of the Social Service League of Lawrence
