Leadership is an activity, not a position.


Dear Overland Park Friends and Neighbors,

After 25 years of dedication and service, I am honored to be elected to serve on the Overland Park City Council in Ward 4.

As a long-time resident of our amazing city, I am passionate about making it an even better place to live, work, and raise a family. I am excited to collaborate with our residents, council members, and city staff to ensure that our community continues to thrive.

My community service experiences demonstrate my ability to lead and my commitment to making a positive difference in our community. By being actively involved in various organizations, I have shown that I truly care about the well-being of the people in our city and the future we build together.

But I can’t do it alone. I need your support to make this vision a reality. Please join me in this journey to make our community the best it can be. Together, we can make Overland Park an even better place to call home.

Thank you.

Gregg Riess
