Leadership with a New

Why I am Running:

Kansas City deserves a Full Time Leader.

I am running because we need leaders working full time to make Kansas City better. My proven ability to work collaboratively to achieve goals and projects will make me an ideal candidate to advance our city into new heights.  Having the unique experience of living on both sides of the river, I understand the priorities valued by my communities in the North and the South, and am deeply invested in the development of both. My goal on city council will be to create a clear vision for the future of KC, build a city where everyone prospers, and support the folks behind the scenes doing the work. It takes all of us to get the job done.


Community Driven Approach


Thank you to all my supporters.


Kay Barnes

Former Mayor, Kansas City

Rarely have I met a candidate who is so well qualified to serve in public office as Justin.  In addition to a charismatic personality, he is well grounded in local issues and is proud of growing up a Kansas Citian. I believe you’ll find Justin to have all the qualities of leadership for Kansas City’s future.”

“Justin is genuinely passionate about Kansas City; he was long before he decided to run for office… One of my favorite qualities in Justin is the respect that he shows people he disagrees with and his willingness to engage in healthy, animosity-free debate. It is a breath of fresh air in the current political climate… While I have always been hesitant to endorse political candidates, I feel at peace doing so for Justin as I trust him and believe he will make a significant positive difference for Kansas City.”

“Justin Short is exactly the type of person this city needs on City Council right now. He’s qualified, personable, a team player, a good listener and will be a valuable addition to our city’s leadership. He’s not afraid of hard work and will prove himself worthy of your trust and your vote. Charles and I are happy to be on his team.”
