Two weeks ago, the Kansans for State and Local Reform group joined KCnet, a local communications service provider, to co-sponsor an event in Lenexa that was focused on local government.

There were five speakers:

Former Johnson County Sheriff Currie Myers, Kansas City (MO) Mayor Mark Funkhouser, former Shawnee City Councilman Kevin Straub, Johnson County Commissioner-elect Jason Osterhaus (Overland Park), and Johnson County Commissioner-elect Michael Ashcraft (Olathe).

We recorded the videos, so that you can watch them at your leisure on YouTube. I invite you to watch them by either going to my Web site (BenjaminHodge.com) or by clicking on the individual images below, which will take you directly to YouTube.

I thank these five speakers, I thank the local citizens who attended this event, and I thank KCnet for co-sponsoring this event.

Thank you for your time, as always.
