I am excited to be running for the City Commission for Leavenworth, Kansas, in 2021.
My theme is city-focused stewardship, which is the effective oversight and protection of Leavenworth’s tremendous resources for all citizens’ benefit. As we repair, replace, and expand public resources, we must have clear priorities aligned with a comprehensive strategic plan. I will always ask, “Is this the best use of the public budget?” I want the city to preserve its historic charm while being a robust twenty-first-century community. I want us to be good stewards of our current resources—our people, infrastructure, and historic artifacts—and our future community where our children and grandchildren can thrive.
About Ted Davis
My family and I have lived in Leavenworth for nearly thirty years, and it has become my “hometown.” The US Army brought me to Fort Leavenworth for my last four years on active duty (1992-1996). My sons and daughter graduated from Leavenworth high schools, and my wife, Deni, retired from teaching at Leavenworth High School.
When we retired from active duty, my wife and I decided that Leavenworth was our best retirement location. It was a wise decision, and I want to serve the community as a city commissioner.
Why I Am Qualified
Experienced Leader: For twenty-two years, I was a commissioned officer in the US Army and retired in 1996 after teaching at the Command and General Staff College. I loved being an active duty soldier, and it was a great career. I am still committed to my oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Business Owner: I have been a successful leadership and management business consultant, coach, and trainer for twenty-three years. I worked with a wide variety of businesses and developed many executive and mid-level leaders.
Strategic Leader: During my Army teaching career, educated Army strategist. In my business career, I have helped scores of companies develop and implement their strategic plans. I earned a Doctor of Strategic Leadership (DSL) degree.
Blessed Husband, Father, and Grandfather: I am truly blessed. My wife, Deni, and I are married for forty-five wonderful years, and our sons and daughter blessed us with seven grandchildren. As I look at Leavenworth, it is through the eyes of a family man.
Community Volunteer and Leader: I worship at Westside Family Church and chaired the Finance Team and am a deacon. I am privileged to sit on the Board of Directors for the First Judicial District’s Court Appointed Special Advisor (CASA) Association. I have been active in the Leavenworth-Lansing Chamber of Commerce, and my wife and I are advisors for the Avenue of Life Ministry.
