Held Office Since:
Friday, April 4, 2014

Responsibilities Include:
Along with the Board of Aldermen, the Mayor holds the care, management and control of the City and its finances; has the power to enact and ordain any and all ordinances not repugnant to the Constitution and laws of this State such as deemed expedient for the good government of the City, the preservation of peace and good order, the benefit of trade and commerce, and the health of the inhabitants thereof; and such other ordinances, rules and regulations as may be deemed necessary to carry such powers into effect; and to alter, modify or repeal the same.

Family:
Married to Virginia Lynn Williams. We have 3 children (Curtis 28, Kesha 25, and Charlie 23) and one grandson.

Upbringing:
  • Raised in Kansas City (Kansas side).
  • Youngest of five (two sisters, two brothers).
  • Parents married over 40 years.
  • Mother still living at age 82.
  • Lost my father in 1991.

I was raised in the Fairfax area of Kansas City during the 60's and 70's. All of my aunts and uncles along with my cousins on my mother's side (around 40 cousins) lived within 4 blocks of us. We spent all of our time in the valley that sat between the six family units we lived in. Times were hard, but we didn't really know that as kids. Our entire world existed in a 4 or 5 block area. Our families were not just geographically close, but we spent all of our time together with my grandma as the matriarch. I have many memories of those days, both good and bad, but suffice it to say that I learned the value of family.

Hobbies:
  • Church (Marshfield Assembly of God)
  • Family
  • I have many interests, but my only hobby is pottery

Life Lesson:
As a young man I spent a few weeks one summer staying with my grandparents on my Father's side in Springfield. I had great admiration for my grandpa, as I did for my dad. One day I asked my grandpa for enough money to buy an ice cream at the "Tastee Freeze" on the corner of Kearney and Fremont. Rather than gifting me the money, my grandpa chose to give me a chore to earn it. I really didn't take well to pulling weeds from his garden, and found every shortcut I could. Once I felt I had done enough I went inside and told him I was done. He trusted me, and on my word he gave me a dime (long time ago). I walked up and got my reward, then returned to find my grandpa waiting for me in the yard. He was clearly not happy with me and walked me around to the garden where he pointed out his disappointment that I would do such a poor job and then tell him otherwise. I will never forget my grandpa's words when he told me in a very broken voice, "Boy, if a job is worth doing, it's worth doing well." Grandpa's are amazing in that they are quick to forgive. He never held the incident against me and never brought it up again, but I took his words to heart and have never forgotten how disappointed he was that I had not been true to my word or given my best effort.

The Mayor is elected in even-numbered years for two year terms.
