What do you see as your role in making Topeka a better place to live and work? As I see it, I am a part owner of this City and I am proud to live and work here. I think that every action counts and so I volunteer locally. Where do you see Topeka in 10 years? By 2027, Topeka businesses, particularly in the areas of finance, insurance and manufacturing, will have increased in size, providing more job opportunities for our residents. Topeka’s downtown and riverfront will be thriving, the city will have an expanded biking trail system, and residents will enjoy increased access to the Kansas River. Topeka will be THE place everyone else will wish they had invested in 10 years earlier.
