MO HOUSE REP. BRANDON ELLINGTON: "LET'S HOPE THEY KEEP THEIR PROMISES" FOLLOWING ANTI-VIOLENCE FORUM!!!



After an IMPRESSIVE SHOWING during a weekend forum where Kansas City residents had the rare opportunity to speak out regarding local violence and murder . . . Here's the latest message that hopes to work toward solutions:

FROM MO HOUSE REP. BRANDON ELLINGTON FOLLOWING HIS "COMMUNITY FORUM AIMED AT COMBATING MURDERS AND THE SYSTEMIC CAUSES OF VIOLENCE"

Now that we've heard the promises made by our local government and state officials, let's hope that they keep their promises or "WE THE PEOPLE" will have to show them the power of the people!

I'll start working on some solutions to the concerns that I heard at the forum and we'll have a follow up forum shortly. The next forum will deal strictly with solutions and resources.

Special thanks to all the volunteers that made this happen. Team Ellington and the Underground Media.

To those that attended thank you but know this, our work has just begun. We will be contacting you in the near future. If you didn't attend or didn't sign up but would like to get involved contact me at brandon.ellington@house.mo.gov or voicesofthepeople.org

Here's the real "scoop": Rep. Brandon Ellington - WIN. Sly/Forte et al - FAIL. They didn't even bother to rsvp for the forum. NOTE: they were not on the press release. HOWEVER: they had such a light turnout for their budget dog and pony show that no one believes makes a damn bit of difference AND then they got wind of HUNDREDS of black and white people AND a bunch of CAMERAS and NEWSIES and hot footed it on over to the forum. And Sly planted his ass on the stage after not even bother to rsvp. Then after he got his photo op he hot footed it out of the place 'cause he hadn't even intended to be there. FAIL! THE PEOPLE aren't fooled and we're calling you out! You'll know who we are and you can make us out to be a bunch of crazies but we're going to show you that we're "just" the people who you "really" are supposed to "represent" not just your donors, family and friends. We're waking up and the beast is pissed!

This is what should be focused on, not Copblock meetings at Westport Flea Market.

At least TKC had the decency not to put a pic with Sly's mug. I'm so sick of seeing his photo op seeking mug I can't stand it.

There's room for both and more.

Good for Brandon for keeping up!

Ellington is gaming Tony and KC.

So what are you doing to help make the city safer? Collective negativity like yours is what is killing the city. If you stand by and do nothing, your just as guilty as those committing the crime.

Ellington, is the real deal. This is the 1st forum that I have attended that residents from the south to northlanders were present. Ellington,stood the whole 3 1/2 hrs. ,people were wrapped around the room standing in line to speak to officials and the officials quitely left the room not listening to them. The forum was to end at 4:00pm,but didn't let out until 5:30 or close to 6pm and the room was still filled. Say what you want about most politicians but Ellington, is a remarkable caring young man that has proven he is dedicated to serving Missour.i The mixture of ages,cultures & races that support him says it all. I will be working to bring this forum to us on the eastern border.

Working on solutions? Atleast Rep.Ellington, held a forum where all the complaints were against the city leaders that escaped by the fire escape. Ellington 4 Mayor.

It's that simple.

No Sly had me fooled.

Is it just me or does Forte sound ignorant every time he speaks. Just watched his interview on Fox4 and he embarrassed himself again.

KCPD is one big crime fighting joke.

More speeches and words and no action. The KCPD dog and pony show.

A dog and pony show always leaves behind a bunch of shit.

Deal with it.

If I read correctly KCPD had nothing to do with this. This was a meeting held by the citizens for the citizens.
