People before politics
Maintain a thriving community
Protect the future for our children
The Gem of the Midwest
Prairie Village has been ranked one of the top 10 best suburbs to live in America. Increasing property values, safe neighborhoods and high-quality education. This is the staple of a city government - to increase the quality of life at the lowest possible cost to the taxpayer. We have seen tremendous economic growth over the last 60 years. Why would we risk the livelihood and eloquence of such a unique town? This is no time for experiments or ego-driven politicans.
We have seen other cities that have adopted a "big-city" approach to their government with very poor results. Prairie Village is not Overland Park or Lenexa. And we don't want to be anytime soon.We do not need to incentivize developers to move here or build sprawling apartments that create congestion and encroach on suburban life. We need to honor our community and continue to invest in essential city services that improve the quality of life for residents.
