Kit Bond Hired By City Hall to Lobby for KC in DC
January 2, 2013

City Hall says former Missouri Senator ‘Kit’ Bond has been hired to be a federal lobbyist for the city in Washington.
Bond was a long-time Missouri Senator. He was known for bringing federal projects and federal money back to the state, Kansas City in particular.
Bond was never apologetic about his role even when “pork” became a dirty word on Capitol Hill.
“I am proud to say that Kansas City will be the only governmental entity Kit Bond Strategies will represent,” said Mayor Sly James. “There are few other than our current elected officials who know our needs and priorities as well as Kit Bond. He has long been a friend of Kansas City and will be a powerful voice in Washington to assist in accomplishing our goals.”
“In the Governor’s Mansion and in the U.S. Senate I championed Kansas City’s priorities, from revitalizing neighborhoods, to improving transportation infrastructure, to increasing access to health care, and I am excited to continue fighting for the City on this new front,” said former Senator Bond in a statement.
