Democratic County Board candidate Alan Howze

Two-time Arlington County Board candidate Alan Howze is moving to Kansas City.

Howze, who was twice defeated by John Vihstadt in back-to-back races in 2014, announced the news of his impending move on Facebook this afternoon.

I have accepted a position as the first Chief Knowledge Officer for the Unified Government of Kansas City and Wyandotte County, and we will be moving to Kansas City, Kansas this summer.

I am thrilled at the opportunity to return to public service, alongside a forward looking leadership team, and in areas (government efficiency, effectiveness and transparency) that I am passionate about. It is a new position that in…cludes direct management of Information Technology, GIS Mapping, 311 Operations, and Open Data, and a charge to support innovation, collaboration, and data-driven decision making across the UG.

There is much that we will miss about Arlington, starting with great friends and neighbors, and the neighborhood and community leaders that we have had the privilege to work with and learn from. Harper, Morgan and Katherine have had a fantastic experience in Arlington’s schools, and we are grateful for the strong foundation of learning that APS teachers have provided.

Howze said he, his wife and his kids plan to make the move later this summer.
