A Note from Jan
As required by the Kansas City Charter, Mayor Sly James and the new City Council were sworn in May 1. Because that was a Sunday, a public swearing-in ceremony was also conducted the following day, and the new council immediately began its work. I am very pleased to have been re-elected to represent the Fourth District. In the picture to the left, I am joined by Fourth District Councilman At Large, Jim Glover (left) and Mayor Sly James.
Mayor James named me Chair of the Finance, Governance, and Ethics Committee which plays a critical role, including ensuring that:
- the financial well-being of our city is maintained
- our government maximizes its financial and human resources
- the city conducts its business in an ethical manner.
It is an honor to have been selected for this responsible position.
The Finance, Governance, and Ethics Committee meets at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday mornings. You can watch the proceedings on Channel 2 or through the City’s Video on Demand Meetings on the city’s website. I encourage you to stay in touch with me regarding the city’s finances or any other matter that is important to you.
