Why do you enjoy being a member of KCAD?
It's a way to work with a team of like-minded individuals that want to improve the local communities and work towards a bright future. The issues that KCAD tackles make a difference.
What is one thing you have learned about economic development through serving on the KCAD Board?
Economic development takes patience and years of disciplined planning and implementation. It doesn't happen over night and it can sometimes be easy to feel discouraged. Perseverance is an attribute you have to possess in your arsenal if you're going to be successful at economic development.
What is one thing you would like to see KCAD accomplish during your board tenure?
Assist in implementing an LB840 economic development plan in Ogallala so we can tackle more impactful projects. Ogallala is one of the few communities our size that has not utilized LB840 in the past. With LB840 at our disposal, Ogallala can begin to gain momentum. (And as of November 6, 2018, Ogallala has approved an LB840 economic development which will take effect
July 1, 2019.)
Drew, thank you for your service to the KCAD Board!
We greatly appreciate you!
