Mayor's Moment: A message from Branson Mayor Edd Akers

Mayor Moment

Dear Branson Community,

What a week! I want to again, welcome our new member of the Branson Board of Aldermen. This past Tuesday, we welcomed Julia King to the dais as she raised her right hand and gave her oath to the City of Branson. I hope everyone takes the opportunity to meet Julia, especially those living in Ward 3.

In addition to Julia’s ceremony, we had a very productive board meeting Tuesday night and in case I have not mentioned it previously, our Information Technology Department is doing a wonderful job of ensuring our citizens can watch and listen to the board meetings via live streaming at

Another aspect of a busy Tuesday was the Reception in honor of the new General Managers at the Branson Convention Center (Sam Voisin) and Hilton Hotel (Harold Mirambell). We welcome both of you to your new positions and look forward to working with you.

Also on Tuesday, I had the chance to participate in the first "Branson/Lakes Area Tourism Community Enhancement District (TCED) Marketing Oversight Committee (MOC)." This is a new group with the mission of assisting the TCED Board with the District’s marketing efforts. Congratulations to Ann McDowell for her selection as the Chair of this Committee. We look forward to you finding new ways of bringing more tourists to our great area.

Another highlight of the week was the TCED Annual Board meeting. We had a great presentation by "Sound Diplomacy" which is the group that conducted the Theatre Industry Study. This was a very informative session focused on the Branson Theater Health & Needs Analysis with recommended strategic action plans. You can see the presentation and the entire report at

Please, if you are so inclined, continue to pray for our city, stay positive, and be thankful for living in the best city in America.

Thank you for letting me serve you,

Mayor Edd Akers
