Will grew up in North Topeka, and lived in Oakland during college. He has seen the issues facing our community first hand, and is running for city council because the city has too often neglected the north side of town. Will's background includes work for the National Park Service, and conservation non-profits, as well as public service in Kansas at the city, county, and state level. Will’s diverse experiences and perspectives make him well-suited to carefully consider community issues.
