On April 19, 2004, I was sworn into the office of City Council Member for the City of Prairie Village. It was only the second time in many years that a newcomer had unseated an incumbent council member. My aspiration was not to be a politician or office holder, it was to provide reliable, trustworthy service to my neighbors. I have always assured the residents of my ward that local government is the most representative of the voter because we live within 5 minutes of everyone we represent. We live in the same neighborhoods; we experience identical issues on the same streets & sidewalks, at the same parks & pool, with the same police officers & city hall staff, and during the same floods and ice storms. As mayor of our Prairie Village, I'll continue to represent you as a neighbor, an experienced councilman and a business executive, not a politician.
When it comes to experience and devotion to serving our city, my history in Prairie Village speaks for itself.

The greatest joy of my life has been raising a family with my wife Janie here, just a few steps from Windsor Park, St. Ann's Church & School and the Village shops, in the city where I grew up. We're the home base for Beth who just graduated from Princeton University and Ben who is a junior at Emory University. As they've traveled the country and the world, they've let everyone know about our pride in the "Star of Kansas", Prairie Village.
