Ep. 43: 50 guests in 43 weeks... A little reflection on some interviews with big impacts

Lee's Summit Town Hall started as an experiment. It began as way to convince a smart and involved member of the community to share his thoughts and insights on local issues. It began with a goal of encouraging people to be engaged with with the community both as an informed voter but also through service.

As 2017 draws to a close, Link 2 Lee's Summit publisher Nick Parker wanted to celebrate the successful conning of Jason Norbury into co-hosting as well as helping connect listeners with a host of people making our community a better place through their business and social ventures. Lee's Summit Town Hall has been "on the air" for 43 weeks. In that span, Nick and Jason have focused their efforts on three things:

  • Inform residents on local issues
  • Hold local elected officials accountable by keeping issues in the public conversation
  • Celebrate and encourage community involvement

In this week's episode, Nick and Jason take a little time to reflect on some of the short interviews with big impacts not only on the conversation of the time, but also on the community as a whole. The duo looks back on conversations with Roberta McArthur, Teri Curp, Dave Eames, Dr. Dennis Carpenter, Matt Sanning and more.
