The Martin City business community and the MCCID board members would like to thank long-time CID Board member and Suburban Lawn & Garden owner, Bo Stueck, for her thoughtful leadership and dedicated service to the Martin City Community Improvement District. Stueck has retired from the CID board of directors and Carol Siegel has officially been appointed to take her place.
“I had the privilege of working with Suburban Lawn & Garden’s Bo Stueck during my entire tenure,” says Barb Engel, retired Executive Director of the MCCID. “Bo was a model Board member – prompt to the meetings, engaged in the issues, willing to serve on additional committees, and a regular attendee at the our social functions. She and her husband, Bill, have been a major resource for Martin City and have always been willing to do what was asked of them.” According to Engel, Martin City would not be what it is today without Bo and Bill Stueck!
So who is the new board member?
Carol Siegel is a lifelong Kansas City resident. She attended St Francis Xavier Elementary, St. Teresa’s Academy, and UMKC, and has been married to her husband, Alan, for 43 years. They have been blessed with 2 sons, 2 grand-daughters and one grandson… so far! They are all huge soccer enthusiasts and Royals fanatics. Carol and Al have lived in South Kansas City their entire married life. She has been employed at Suburban Lawn and Garden for 21+ years, having started on her birthday in 1993! She has always been interested in government affairs but has never really been directly involved so she is excited about the opportunity to serve on the MCCID board. “I hope to learn more about the inner workings of city government and do what I can to promote Martin City!” says Siegel. We are excited to have her join the CID board!
