Commissioner of Public Lands

Message from Commissioner Bob Moore

McPherson has been good to Lois and me. I ran for commission to find a way to give back to the McPherson Community that has given so much to us. To continue to grow and thrive, McPherson needs to continue to build on housing opportunities and attract workers for both current and new industrial opportunities. McPherson needs to look ahead for the next 15 years and beyond.
