When I think of Kansas City, I think about… Family, friends, BBQ, college, baseball

The biggest issue facing local government is… Community engagement and lack of ownership of community

My pro tip for getting the most out of professional conferences… Plan your own schedule and remain engaged throughout the conference

If I had to create a presidential ticket with my top two mentors, I’d select… William McRaven and Stanley  McChrystal
