Mull seeks city council seat

Daniel Mull had his first exposure to local politics as a child when he volunteered at the North Town Community Center in St. Joseph, Mo.

The center housed an after-school program which gave children a safe place to go from 3 to 5 p.m. when their parents could pick them up. Several of Mull’s relatives, including his grandmother and a cousin, served as moderators of the center’s board.

Mull said he always dreamed of working with his grandmother at the center and helping people who depended on the facility for school supplies, food and after-school programs.
