    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    Before joining Dunkin' Brands in 2016, Hoffmann spent 22 years at McDonald's Corp, where he had most recently served as its president of high growth markets, which included China, South Korea and Russia.

    He earned his bachelors in accounting at Indiana University and an MBA from the University of Chicago.
