My name is Megan Purvis I live in Mound City with my two children; Damian (18) and Mady (13). I have worked for RLC, Inc. in Pleasanton, KS for the last nine years. I have called Mound City my home, all of my life. A lot has changed over the years but Mound City’s small town charm has remained the same.

1) Why are you running for school board?

I am running for city council to help encourage economic development while maintaining the desire of our residents to live a rural lifestyle.

2) What do you hope to accomplish if elected to this position?

I want to work to preserve the essence of our community for generations to come. I believe we can accomplish this through controlled growth, maintaining core values and increasing engagement within our community. I want to be involved in our city government and ensure that the thoughts, concerns and ideas of the residents of Mound City are always heard and acknowledged.

3) What skills and/or experience do you have that will aid you in this position?

 I look forward to working with the other members of the city council, the Mayor and the residents of Mound City to broaden community involvement and attain any goals that preserve the history and improve the future of Mound City. My desire is to open communication channels to get everyone involved through broader advertising of community events as well as transparent communication and governance.
