When I think of Kansas City, I think about…

Sporting KC soccer

The biggest issue facing local government is…

Resistance to change.

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

Get outside your comfort zone and talk to new people. The power is in the networking.

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

St. Louis City Forestry Commissioner, Skip Kincaid and USDA Forest Service Regional Director, Paul Ries. (probably not a very balanced ticket 🙂
