Missouri Governor Jay Nixon appointed Greg Kratofil Jr. to the Jackson County Sports Complex Authority. Kratofil, a Republican, will replace authority chairman Gerald Winship, an independent whose term expired on July 15.

Kratofil is a partner in the Kansas City law firm Polsinelli PC. He is Google’s local counsel for the Google Fiber for Communities Project, and assisted in the negotiations and documentation of naming rights for Livestrong Sporting Park.

The authority governs maintenance and operation of the Truman Sports Complex, administering funds from the state of Missouri, Jackson County and Kansas City. It consists of a five member panel, each appointed to five-year terms. No more than three members may be of any one political party. The Jackson County Legislature provides the governor with a panel of three nominees. The governor’s nominee must be confirmed by the Missouri Senate.
