Elected Officeholder: Dagmar Wood

First District Commissioner


Dagmar Wood was elected and officially took office as commissioner of Platte County's first district on January 1, 2017 for a four-year term.  Dagmar earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Missouri, Columbia and her Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Missouri, Kansas City.  Previously, she was an analyst at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.  While taking time off work to raise her four active children, Dagmar volunteered in their schools.  She was also appointed to serve on and lead local committees concerning public safety and health.

Dagmar believes that supporting public safety should be a priority of county government, as well as maintaining safe roads and bridges.  Responsibly setting aside funds for the future maintenance of Platte County's parks, trails, and community centers is also a financial priority.  Dagmar endeavors to increase transparency in government and values working with officeholders and department heads to ensure the responsible stewardship of taxpayers' resources.

Dagmar and her husband, Eric, have been residents of Platte County since 1988 and enjoy living in Parkville with their four children.  You may reach Dagmar at 816-858-3330 or email at Dagmar.Wood@co.platte.mo.us.
