A Jayhawk fan might get a bit of ribbing meeting Georgia Brown at Lansing City Hall. But it's all in good fun.

The Kansas State University graduate loves her alma mater and her work.

A KSU business administration grad, Brown is an accountant for Lansing and says "it's great working for the city. I intend to retire from the city."

In her job, Brown pays the city's bills. And she also gets to meet a lot of Lansing residents who come in to city hall, a part of the job she says she enjoys. Brown also likes seeing how Lansing is growing. "I see nothing but positive things here. It's getting bigger and better," she said. And she lauds the Lansing schools and the activities and sports programs available to her two children. Simply put, she says, she feels at home in Lansing. "It's wonderful."
