Dear Editor:
I live in Raytown but do a lot of business in Liberty. I’m a member of the Liberty Small Business Network and Liberty Sertoma Club. I recently heard Liberty’s mayor speak about the future of Liberty and visited Liberty’s community center. After hearing Mayor Greg Canuteson speak, he made me want to move to Liberty. I don’t understand how Liberty has managed to score major retail development and jobs when they have the same population base, same income base and demographic. The one difference I see with Mayor Canuteson is that he had a 3-year plan for bringing jobs to Liberty and executed that plan.

Contrast that with Raytown where I’ve never heard the Mayor’s vision or plan for bring development and jobs to Raytown. Does Raytown have a future? I would like to hear it before moving to Liberty. — Leilani Haywood

P.S. If I ever became an alderman in Raytown I would push for a community center.
