KCAD Board Vice President: Laci Mueller
Laci has lived in Keith County for more than 15 years and is the Operations Manager at Western Insurors. She has loved living in Keith County as she grew up in a small community and knew that when she and her husband had children, she wanted them to have the same small town family feel. Laci also likes the opportunities for growth and success that Keith County has to offer her family.
My hobbies include watching my kids’ many activities and spending my summers at the lake. I also enjoy helping with our family farm and spending time with family and friends.
Why do you enjoy being a member of KCAD?
I enjoy being on the KCAD Board because I like having a hand in helping to spur economic development in Keith County. I feel like we have so much potential living on the I-80 corridor and having Lake McConaughy in our backyard. I want to be a part of growing Keith County to its fullest potential.
What is one thing you have learned about economic development through serving on the KCAD Board?
Since being elected onto the KCAD Board I have learned a lot about economic development. The one thing that has been eye opening to me is how important economic development is to Keith County. Economic development is crucial to Ogallala’s downtown revitalization, growth of the lake businesses and business opportunities for the smaller communities in Keith County like Paxton and Brule.
What is one thing you would like to see KCAD accomplish during your board tenure?
One of the things that I would like to see during my board tenure is the revitalization of our downtown here in Ogallala. I find it sad to see so many vacant store fronts when you drive down Spruce Street. I would like to see KCAD have the ability to take on a bigger role in assisting entrepreneurs who are trying to take a different approach to our downtown and make it something different than it has ever been.
Laci, thank you for your service to the KCAD Board!
We greatly appreciate you!
