June 1, 2011 - KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI
Easy online application for all positions available now

Kansas City Mayor Sly James invites all residents to get involved in serving the City we call home. As part of his initiative to increase the number of Kansas Citians who participate in their government, Mayor James announced he has made an easy online application available for the City’s boards and commissions.

“I applaud the efforts of everyone who has served our City. The talent and dedication exhibited by the outgoing board members and commissioners is a tribute to our residents. These are volunteer positions, and I know each of them has put in countless hours to make our City great. As we begin a new administration, I invite all Kansas Citians to consider pitching in and helping us move our City forward. This is a great chance to hear new ideas and shape exciting new possibilities. We have already received many great applicants, but I continue to urge everyone to consider applying and serving in these important roles,” said Mayor James.

It is an exciting time for Kansas City and every resident can be a part of it. The City has over 90 boards and commissions in which citizens can serve.
