Letter to the editor – November 3, 2021

Dear editor, 

Some Kansas City leaders aren’t embracing pursuit of the 2024 Republican National Convention and the publicity it would accrue. I understand the reluctance.

In 1976, with the Vietnam experience essentially history, I attended the GOP convention in Kansas City on behalf of The Register. I was excited and intrigued to write daily reports from, as much as possible, local angles. Mary Alice Lair, Republican stalwart from Piqua, was in attendance, as was Gary Rice, a 1970 grad of Iola High who was assigned by the Kansas City Star. He and I were among 6,000 reporters covering every possible angle.
