A statement sent to supporters today:
I love you Kansas City. For the last 20 years I have dedicated my life to making this city a better place. For the last 250 days I’ve had the honor and privilege of traveling to every corner of this great community — talking to our neighbors and connecting with thousands of residents about the future of our home.
We walked the length of the city. We took the time to tour neighborhoods with leaders who work hard every day to build a better community. One neighbor called it – leadership by walking around. We saw first hand what we are getting right — and got an up close look at the problems we still need to solve.
Through it all we were always able to find that Kansas City Spirit. A pride that is bigger than all of us. A desire to make sure that Kansas City’s success continues in every neighborhood.
Along the way, people stepped up to help. We shared a vision. While we didn’t get the outcome we wanted in this election, that vision has not changed.
Thank you to the Justus League and all our generous supporters. Your time, generosity, sweat and passion were felt throughout the city and I appreciate each and every one of you.
So what’s next? First and foremost, I won’t disengage and neither should you. We must support our city’s leaders and keep working to move our city forward. I know that’s exactly what you will do.
Kansas City is on a roll – and we are just getting started. I know you love this city as much as I do and I know you have it in you to stay in the game. Let’s dig deep and make sure we build the safe, diverse, and equitable city that we deserve.
Thank you Kansas City. Now let’s keep walking.
