THE TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! NEWBIE MICHAEL WATSON ALREADY EMBATTLED AS AD-HOC GROUP AGAINST CRIME LEADER!!!
Leading Kansas City's Eastside against violence and crime is no easy task and a new leader is discovering this fact of life first hand.
To wit . . .
SOME OF THE MOST KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS TELL US THAT AD HOC GROUP AGAINST CRIME LEADER MICHAEL WATSON IS FACING SOME RATHER SIGNIFICANT CHALLENGES AND OBSTACLES IN HIS SHORT TENURE!!!
Most know Mr. Watson from his legendary days at UMKC basketball. His youth and relative inexperience are just a couple of criticism leveled at the Eastside leader.
We've got AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS working on more details and even more info coming our way . . . But we wanted to put this story on blast FIRST because it's common knowledge to many insiders.
To wit . . .
CHECK A LIST OF CHALLENGES FACING AD HOC LEADER MICHAEL WATSON AND TALK CIRCULATING AMONG KANSAS CITY INSIDERS WHO WORRY ABOUT HIS LEADERSHIP PROSPECTS!!!
- Relationship drama . . . To some extent this is a private matter but the leader of this Eastside group IS A PUBLIC FIGURE and the talk is everywhere. Journalists can go transcribe details after reading FIRST on TKC but apparently there is "trouble in paradise" according to AWESOME TIPSTERS who question the credibility of an Eastside leader who some say might not be so great about keeping his personal life out of public discussion.
- Effectiveness - Face it . . . Eastside Kansas City violence is on the rise again and the same old strategies are clearly not the answer. Mr. Watson hasn't shown much of an interest in doing anything new and his critics are calling him on it.
- 3rd District Power struggles - We're getting closer to the election and more than a few groups are fighting for political power on Kansas City's Eastside. Mr. Watson is not a politician and some say he lacks the experience and knowledge to effectively position the group in the good graces of a changing political landscape wherein the Revs and social service beneficiaries might not hold all of the power in KC's 3rd.
For these reasons and so many more . . . This TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL hopes that Mr. Watson is able to meet these challenges given that the effort to fight deadly violence in Kansas City is our most important struggle and should be our top civic priority.
DEVELOPING . . .
