My name is Logan Heley, and I'm running for re-election to the Overland Park City Council to ensure we continue the long, hard work towards a more sustainable, healthy, and just community. That’s why I’m asking for your vote in the 2021 election. Overland Park Ward 1 has been my home for 27 years and my family has lived in Johnson County for three generations.
If this pandemic has taught us anything, it is that we need good, competent, compassionate elected leaders at all levels of government. Since being elected to the Overland Park City Council in 2017, I have led or co-led several important initiatives:
Began live streaming all Council meetings
Started Open Public Comment for residents
Better notification of residents before rezoning and redevelopment decisions
Passed legal protections for LGBTQ+ community members (NDO)
Initiated using renewable energy for more than half of the City’s electricity
Expanded public transit (Microtransit)
Currently, I am a community engagement manager for
Harvesters—The Community Food Network. I work with
churches, schools, small businesses, neighborhood groups,
clubs, government agencies, corporations, individuals, and
more to facilitate food and fund donations that will help feed
the 360,000+ people in our region who don’t know when or
where their next meal will be. As a manager, I am responsible
for a budget that will collect millions in monetary donations
and pounds of donated food.
Transparency and responsiveness are important to me, as I know they are to you. I return emails and calls I receive from constituents. Constituent service is part of my professional background and community engagement is my current job. I pledge to continue to be responsive to you and seek your input.
I’ll prioritize sustainable development and infrastructure that makes our neighborhoods healthier, safer, and more affordable. I’ll continue to ensure tax and incentive policies are focused on YOU and community benefits, not wealthy developers.
Our neighbors trust me. After work, I serve on the advisory board of Climate Action KC and the board of the Metropolitan Energy Center. I previously served on the Shawnee Mission UU Church Board of Trustees and the Alumni Network Advisory Board for the Youth Volunteer Corps. I’m also a Johnson County Citizens Academy graduate. I was the press intern at the White
House and worked in constituent services as a Congressional intern. Neighborhood leaders, including former state Rep. Nancy Lusk and former Overland Park City Councilmember Jay Lehnertz, proudly endorse me.
It would be my honor to continue to serve you and our neighborhoods on the Overland Park City Council. Please contact me at (913) 660-4727 or LoganHeleyForKansas@gmail.com with any questions. I’d appreciate your vote in the November 2nd election. Early voting begins on October 23.
