Sollie is a City Councilmember and attorney who is running for Mayor to cement Mission’s forward progress. Sollie chose to make Mission her home because she was drawn to its charming downtown business district full of eclectic businesses, its established neighborhoods and their amazing trees, and of course the friendly people. While serving on the City Council, Sollie has been a leader on sustainability and equity matters. Her policy achievements include introduction and passage of a Non-Discrimination Ordinance, and she continues to work closely with Mission’s Sustainability Commission to build a more resilient city.
Sollie is also an advocate for Mission at the regional, state, and national levels, serving in leadership positions with Climate Action KC, as a past member of the Governing Body of the League of Kansas Municipalities, and as a current member of the Transportation & Infrastructure Services Committee of the National League of Cities.
As Mayor, Sollie will be a strong leader who will continue to work collaboratively to advance Mission’s interests and deliver on the issues that matter most to residents. Her top priorities are: improved streets and parks; fostering opportunities for meaningful citizen engagement; and sustainable growth. Sollie looks forward to working together to build a stronger Mission that is ready for the challenges of today and tomorrow.
