WTF?!?!? 40 YEARS @ JACKSON COUNTY FOR FRED ARBANAS!!!!



I thought Crystal Williams was supposed to bring sweeping changes . . . Like it or not, this longtime politico probably wields more power than the odd lady out.

Take a look . . .

"As of this month, Arbanas, D-Lee’s Summit, has been a Jackson County legislator for 40 years, easily the longest of anyone on the Legislature. He first won office in the fall of 1972, when voters approved the current County Charter and created the Legislature in its current form."

And so . . .

YES, I'M SURE FRED IS A GREAT GUY BUT EVEN THE URBAN LEGEND THAT HE WILL SERVE ANOTHER TERM NEEDS TO BE PUT TO REST RIGHT NOW!!!

40 years on a single legislative body is a remarkable career and a testament to a Kansas City political legacy . . . Anything more is an insult.

Actually, I'm hoping that Mr. Arbanas will gracefully step down at the end of his term instead of letting those who would manipulate an ELDERLY elder statesman continue to live off a local legend.

Does this make him the longest serving elected JACOMO official? The other person who comes to mind is Rudy Roper, mayor of Sugar Creek for like forever.

I know Fred well. He takes the job seriously and does a good job.If he is doing a good job, why not reelect him?

He will be euthanized soon by executive order.

You are welcome.

Praise me.

Pay your taxes.

Fred is running again because his aide Karen Conrad is unemployable. He has the job, so she keeps a job.

Lucky Ned Pepper sez: That's a pretty good record for a one eyed fat man.

Fred's a good guy for the Parks Department. After all, they named the golf course after him. Wow, wonder if they'll do the same for Michele Newman. Let's hope not. She'll just have a statue with a hat because she can't even do her own hair. Really, have someone show this lady how to fix her hair.
