RESOLUTION NO. 080942

 

Acknowledging the contributions of Consensus and congratulating the organization on 25 years of putting the public in public policy

 

WHEREAS, on September 30, 2008, Consensus celebrates 25 years of putting the public in public policy; and

 

WHEREAS, Consensus was a regional organization back when, as Walt Bodine said at its fifth annual dinner, you could drive a truck across the state line but you couldnt roll an idea across it; and

 

WHEREAS, Consensus has promoted progress in metropolitan Kansas City by proving that regular citizens can learn about issues, make hard choices, find innovative ways to solve problems, and work towards action; and

 

WHEREAS, Consensus has grown into an entrepreneurial nonprofit business with a national profile, studying issues and engaging citizens on behalf of the local community, working with organizations like MacNeil/Lehrer Productions and the Kettering Foundation on national citizen engagement initiatives, and working on behalf of clients in metro Kansas City and around the U.S.; and

 

WHEREAS, Consensus has been and will continue to be a valuable resource for our community by helping leaders and citizens find common ground for action; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby acknowledge the contributions of Consensus and congratulate the organization on 25 years of putting the public in public policy; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to Consensus President Charles Renner in token and recognition of the past, present and anticipated future successes of Consensus.
