Board of Alderman endorsements

Half of our Board of Aldermen are up for election next Tuesday, April 4th.

Ward I

No endorsement


Ward II

Loretha Hayden:  Hayden`s real world business experience, pleasant nature, would be a great asset to the Board of Alderman. Hayden served as the Chair of the Raytown Chamber of Commerce.

 

 

 

 

 


Ward III

Ryan Myers : This is a tough call, as both candidates are good-natured and have good intent. Ryan add more energy and numeric analysis to the board and by that gets the endorsement.


Ward IV

Chuck Henss: Henss has education and experience in large international projects. His ability to work well with diverse people to a common goal (as in trans-Pacific telecom cables) would add needed skills to the Board.

 

 

 

 

 


Ward V

Bonnaye Mims:  Mims probably has the most impressive set of skills, education, and experience of any candidate to run for the Board of Alderman.  She has a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science, Master’s in Government Business and two terms as a State Rep for a district that includes the lower west part of Raytown.  She sat on the Appropriations Committee that oversees all State spending. Here skills in creating, overseeing and passing budgets is a skill Raytown is in need of.  Mims also served 13 years on the Hickman Mills School Board and was elected four times in succession to the post of Board President.

 

Endorsements for Raytown School Board – Landers & Roberts

DOROTHY TUCKER ROBERTS – Ms. Roberts history of being an educator, business owner, and State of Missouri licensing board member in her profession make her an outstanding candidate for the Raytown School Board. Her quick mind and pleasant nature is an added bonus.

 

 

 

TERRY E. LANDERS – The good work Mr. Landers has done for this community would fill a book. Teaching, coaching, volunteering for kids and for seniors, Raytown Arts Council, Raytown Retired Teachers and School Personnel Association, Raytown PTA Council, and the Raytown Rotary Club, Raytown Parks Board, Shepherd Center Board, and Raytown Kiwanis are a few ways Terry has served.

Mr. Landers is a stable force on the School Board, whose knowledge of the Boards history and ability to get people to work together are a great asset.
