Vote for Tim Denker

March 28, 2014 

Dear Editor,

I am writing to share my support for Tim Denker, candidate for the 2nd District of the Lee’s Summit City Council. I support Tim because of his leadership and dedicated public service.

Tim Denker was born and raised in Lee’s Summit, a graduate of Lee’s Summit North High School in 1998, built his law practice in downtown Lee’s Summit and lives with his family here. He has been drawn to the idea of giving back to the community to help it grow, and feels that most successful communities are built this way. I have had the opportunity to get to know Tim as an active member with the Lee’s Summit Chamber of Commerce and LS 360 Implementation Committee.

Tim is running on a platform of making Lee’s Summit a more business friendly community. He believes this can be accomplished by strengthening the City’s relationships with the Economic Development Council, Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Main Street, our educators and any other business-supporting organizations. Tim would also like to streamline the city’s stance on TIFs and other business attraction tools. The current case-by-case stance on these tools makes it difficult for Lee’s Summit to be reasonably competitive when attempting to attract businesses.

I believe Tim Denker is the right candidate to represent us at the City level as we look to continue to grow our neighborhoods in Lee’s Summit. Please join me in voting for Tim Denker on April 8.

Terry Trafton,

Lee’s Summit
