Letter to the Editor from David E. Elliott - Charter Election

I was privileged to serve as an elected member of the original Lee’s Summit Charter Commission (one of three members who were attorneys), who drafted the original city charter adopted in 1996.

Small Town Values

They say that an understanding of the past is fundamental to understanding the present. Lee’s Summit is the kind of place that possesses a rich, colorful past echoing its timeless cultural traditions. It’s the kind of place that allows you to glimpse back in time and surround yourself with things that are real and true, things with character that provide residents and visitors alike with a genuine appreciation for all those who have come before us. Lee’s Summit is still the type of place where inclusion is just as important today as it was back in 1865, when our city started welcoming early settlers, each with their own unique characteristics, yet all were overflowing with shared dreams of a better life.
