To the editor:

Susan Culpepper has spent many hours as the chair of the Blue Springs Planning Commission. She was elected Blue Springs Citizen of the Year by the Missouri Municipal League, which highlights Susan’s civic work and leadership. She will bring her accounting background and her many years of experience in civic and volunteer work to the City Council. She has promised to listen and work with citizens and her fellow council members to help businesses grow and prosper.

Susan is realistic and knowledgeable, and she brings a fresh spirit to the council. She will do her best to represent the citizens of the 3rd District with integrity, honor and plain hard work.

I think the Blue Springs City Council needs new blood and fresh ideas. Join me in voting for the council’s only woman candidate.
