When I think of Kansas City, I think about…

The Royals/ Kauffman Stadium, even though I have never been. And Priest Holmes, had his jersey growing up.

The biggest issue facing local government is…

communicating with residents.

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

be friendly and smile.

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

I think the Assistant Village Administrator and Village Administrator that I work for now would be a solid duo… Eric Palm and Lisa Scheiner, that would be fun for me to watch!
