THE TKC WEEKLY POWER RANKINGS!!!
Kansas City is home to a lot of powerful people . . . Maybe not as strong as Alexa Howard and her power lifting hotness . . . But still pretty impressive.
Take a look at the strongest in Kansas City this week . . .
1. Rep. Todd Akin - There is not a single individual who has done more damage to the Republican Party in all of the nation than Todd Akin. He has championed an exceptionally strong kind of backward momentum.
2. MO House Jason Kander - He is taking the gloves off and kicking his campaign into high gear as the election approaches.
3. Jackson County Legislator Theresa Garza Ruiz - She is back in the swing of things and seems to be picking up more steam as the next election cycle slouches forward.
4. Council Dude Jim Glover - He actually got involved with residents this week. It's a nice touch from a City Council that's mostly unaccountable to neighborhoods.
5. Mayor Pro-Tem Cindy Circo - We've got an eye on what could be an epic power move for this former nail tech . . . STAY TUNED!!!
