During a recent Chamber breakfast event, KCMO 6th District City Councilman Scott Taylor surprised South KC Chamber President, Vickie Wolgast, with a proclamation from the City of Kansas City, Missouri recognizing the impact she has made over the past ten years in the South Kansas City region.

In October 2006, the Chamber’s then President, Barbara Engel, retired and the Chamber hired Wolgast as the new Executive Director. Since then, Councilman Taylor says South Kansas City has only seen positive growth and is now leading the City of Kansas City, Missouri in job growth.

“Hundreds of millions of dollars of investment are going into the South KC region,” said Councilman Taylor. He went on to say, “That doesn’t just happen by accident. It happens through leadership and Vickie has been a wonderful partner to both the City and the South Kansas City business community in moving things forward and making things happen.” So much so, Councilman Taylor said the Red Bridge Shopping Center is a topic of conversation at the White House!
