Government Relations

The Unified Government (UG) is a member of the League of Kansas Municipalities and the Kansas Association of Counties. In addition to educational training, hosting conferences, advising municipalities on best practices and legal issues, both organizations engage in lobbying the Kansas Legislature on issues affecting local government.

The UG and the Board of Public Utilities (BPU), the municipally-owned electric and water utility, contract with EnGage LLC to interact with the Kansas Congressional delegation in Washington, DC.

Public Relations Director Mike Taylor serves as the staff lobbyist for the UG, among a host of other duties.

Goal:

Building a productive partnership between the Unified Government, Kansas Legislature and Congress to protect local government funding and local control.
