How long have you lived in Wichita?

I was born in Wichita, and have lived here most of my life.

What is something you love about this community?

I love the variety and opportunity Wichita provides for those who live or visit here. I love our music and arts community, our zoo and other attractions. I love our business community and the way it supports growth. I love that we have become a regional leader in higher education and in health care. There is so much to love about this city.

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

This is a community where people help each other succeed. If you get involved in your neighborhood, your schools, your job and your favorite charity, you will become part of something wonderful here.

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

This city has become a magnet for young people who want to build a future for their families.

What transformational projects need to be complete by 2025?

We need to have a vibrant downtown and west river bank. Our convention center needs to be replaced. Our city needs to be better-connected for walking, biking, and shopping — whether that is through city trolly transportation or simply by designing specific oasis areas where people can gather like they do in Old Town. We should have a new ball park and a local baseball or basketball team we can call our own.
