TKC TIPSTERS TOP THE KANSAS CITY STAR!!!
TKC didn't make an endorsement this election.
But the information and analysis coming into this blog shapped our coverage.
We trusted some of the best, most well-informed and AWESOME people in Kansas City.
Now take a look at the results . . .
Right out of the gate . . . TKC HATES NEW TAXES . . . The Star split their decision.
CONCLUSION: LOW VOTER TURNOUT AND MAYOR SLY'S SMILE ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN KANSAS CITY MEDIA BOTH BIG AND SMALL!!!
In the Democratic fight for Downtown, Westport And The Plaza . . .
The Star endorsed Sarah Gillooly
Meanwhile . . .
A TOP ECHELON KANSAS CITY INSIDERS TOLD ME TO EVEN OUT TKC COVERAGE!!! I WAS GLAD TO TAKE THE ADVICE AND NOTED JUDY MORGAN'S CAMPAIGN WORK ON LOCAL STREETS!!!
First we noticed Morgan taking a winning strategy and earning the support of La Raza Political Club and Westside matriarch Lali Garcia.
And then we noticed Morgan making an effort to connect with voters personally.
TKC did not endorse . . . But thanks to TKC TIPSTERS we got a better vantage of what was happening on the streets of Kansas City - where elections are fought and won.
Finally . . .
Time and time again . . .
TKC TIPSTERS TOLD US THAT BIG RED JASON HOLSMAN WOULD STAY WINNING!!!
His campaign started talking to voters from DAY ONE . . . He met with, called and took meetings with everyone he could. Jason Holsman generally likes people and enjoys being a servant to constituents.
AND TKC TIPSTERS HELD CRYSTAL WILLIAMS ACCOUNTABLE FOR HER CAMPAIGN PROMISES WHILE THE STAR SIMPLY WANTED TO PLAY POLITICS!!!
I don't like the endorsement game and I try not to play it . . . What's more important is that TKC TIPSTERS earned these MAJOR VICTORIES and have hopefully made progress in making local politicos more accountable to the last remaining voters in Kansas City.
