Commissioner of Public Lands

Message from Commissioner Gary Mehl


I have made McPherson home most of my life. I graduated from all primary and
secondary McPherson schools, met my wife here, married here, my three children
were born here and graduated from McPherson schools. I worked for The
McPherson Sentinel for forty-five years and retired in 2010. I’m about as
McPherson as you can get!

The reason I decided to run for City Commissioner was simply to give back to this
community that has given so much to me. I’ve made great friends along my journey
and appreciate the business and industrial community that continues to flourish in
this great community we call home. Hopefully I’ll be able to contribute to
McPhersons continued success in a meaningful way as your Commissioner of Public
Facilities.
