My husband and I and our then-2-year-old daughter moved to Prairie Village in 2008 to build our life in a city that offered excellent schools, public safety, an abundance of parks, and opportunity to build a community of neighbors and friends.
As a born Communicator and Connector, one thing I will do, prior even to Day 1, will be to greatly enhance the lines of communication between this Ward seat and the citizens I will represent. I am excited to be a representative and advocate for Ward 3.
