LENEXA RESIDENT ANNOUNCES BID FOR CITY COUNCIL WARD 4
Julie A. Sayers, a Commercial Interior Designer, has announced her candidacy for Lenexa City Council in Ward 4
As a Designer, Sayers has spent the past 15 years focused on protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public - making sustainable choices for the environment, while stewarding the structures in which people in this country spend 90% of their time: spaces in which we all learn, heal, work, and play.
“I am running for City Council because it is the natural progression of the passion I have for ensuring that my community, neighbors and friends have the tools they need to thrive, while each doing our part to safeguard our planet for generations to come,” Sayers said. “It is through this lens of leadership and advocacy that I hope to represent the people of Lenexa in our continued growth.”
Throughout her career, Sayers has served as President of the International Interior Design Association’s Mid America Chapter, and most recently as the current President of the Center for Architecture and Design Kansas City.
A native Kansan, Sayers is a proud product of Topeka Public Schools and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design from the University of Kansas. Along with her husband Scott and their two dogs Dug and Izzy, Sayers has made her home Johnson County for ten years, the last 5 being in Lenexa.
She is a member of the International Interior Design Association, Equality Kansas, the local chapter of Moms Demand Action, and the Metro KC Climate Action Coalition.
