From the desk of Harrisonville Mayor Brian Hasek

Just an FYI, if someone comes knocking at your door to talk to you about voting or electing them for Mayor the election is not until April 2019. 

Yes I plan to seek re-election, but I have a lot of work still to do in this term before I worry about a second term. 

Hope everyone is well and remember the best days of Harrisonville are still ahead.
