The Mayoral transition

In one of his first acts as newly elected mayor, Bill Baird has tabbed fellow newcomer Jose "Beto" Lopez to serve as Mayor Pro Tempore. Both have just begun their first terms as elected city officials. Jason and Nick chat a bit about this move, as well as their favorite civic-nerd topic, public incentives for development before bringing on now former Mayor Randy Rhoads for a short conversation and look back at his years of service to the Lee's Summit community.
