In years past, Tim has been active in the Lee’s Summit Chamber of Commerce and he is a graduate of Leadership Lee’s Summit.

Public safety, economic development, civility in public discourse, and service are all things that are very close to Tim’s heart. He has a desire to help strengthen Lee’s Summit by creating opportunities for all of its citizens and encouraging diversity in every area of the community. As a previous member of the Lee’s Summit Arts Council and a performer with several Summit Theatre Group productions, Tim believes deeply in the value of the Arts as a key element in developing a thriving community.

Some of Tim’s goals are encouraging the development of diverse and affordable housing options, while maintaining the high-quality standards our citizens have come to expect; promoting kind and civil discourse; and advocating for a community that is culturally diverse, fair-minded, and rich with opportunities for our ever-growing population. The foundation of Tim’s campaign is service, diversity, and a voice for all.
