    In April 2019, Branson Missouri elected a new Mayor.  In this interview, we get to know Mayor Edd Akers.  We discuss the future of Branson, the importance of our live shows, new attractions, and community members working together to insure a prosperous future.

    Edd was delivered in the back of the family store by a doctor that arrived by horseback. 
    His feelings about the number of shows in Branson. 
    How he briefly ran Silver Dollar City. 
    Just who that strange man, sitting in a lawn chair with minnows nipping at his legs in the creek, actually is. 
    Enjoy this fun interview with Mayor Edd Akers.

Akers has served on a variety of boards in the community, including serving as president of Branson School Board, chairman of Cox Medical Center Branson, chairman of Taney County Planning & Zoning, chair of Taney County Board of Adjustment, and chairman of Branson/Lakes Area Tourism Community Enhancement District among others.
