How long have you lived in Wichita?

I grew in the Kansas City area and moved to Wichita in 1978.  I attended college at WSU from 1971 to 1975.

What is something you love about this community?

I love the business community, and in particular the legal community.  It is comprised of hard-working courts and judges, and many skillful lawyer.  I have been able here to work for great clients on interesting matters.  And I love the Sedgwick County Zoo.  I have been there hundreds of times.

What would you share with someone who is considering moving to Wichita?

Wichita has everything a family could want.  Housing is affordable, this is a diverse community, the schools are great, and there are incredible companies located here, such as Koch, Cargill, etc.

What would you like to say about Wichita in ten years?

From a selfish standpoint, I would like to say Wichita is still my home (that will mean that I am still alive).  On a more serious note, I would like to say that downtown Wichita has succeeded in redeveloping itself, and law firms and other companies are moving back into it.

 

What transformational projects need to be complete by 2025?

More projects to move businesses downtown, or keep them here.
