TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! TALKING POLITICS, LEGISLATION AND KANSAS CITY DEMOCRATS WITH MISSOURI STATE SENATOR JASON HOLSMAN!!!



For better or worse, newbie MO State Senator Jason Holsman hopes that a straight forward approach to the divisive Kansas City political scene and Missouri GOP NO-VETO Majority will help his political survival or at least better serve his constituents.

TKC RECENTLY SCORED AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH MO STATE SENATOR JASON HOLSMAN THAT WAS MOSTLY OFF RECORD BUT STILL OFFERS A LOT OF CLUES ABOUT THE MISSOURI STATE SENATOR'S APPROACH TO CONFLICT!!!

Regarding TKC's favorite topic - political vendettas and payback - State Sen. Holsman offered this bit of insight on the subject of "mending fences" which seems to be one of his top concerns among a Kansas City Democratic coalition that's clearly fractured . . .

"Elected officials who are looking for revenge don't last long. I've had conversations with all of my so-called 'rivals' and it's been far more productive to discuss how we move forward rather than dwelling on stuff that happened during heated campaigns. Politicians who seek payback don't have time to do more important work to justify their reelection," State Sen. Holsman said. "The work I want to do involves trying to garner support from as many people as possible and that includes people with whom I've disagreed in the past."

To that end, State Sen. Holsman said that one of his main priorities would be his co-sponsorship of a school lunch bill . . .

Check it:

SB 132 & 133 – This act would allow a school district that operates a pre-kindergarten program to receive state funding through the foundation formula for students between the ages of three and five. The district must provide full-day kindergarten and meet standards established by the State Board of Education. This act would become effective in the school year after the school year in which the foundation formula is fully funded and would remain in effect in any succeeding year. This act does not require school attendance beyond what is required under the state's compulsory attendance law and does not change or modify the state's kindergarten attendance age statutes.
#######

As one of the few Kansas City Democrats to put forward legislation so far this session . . . State Sen. Holman seemed to believe that creativity and compromise when it comes to legislation is the most important key to success.

"This bill crosses party lines and serves a need for people in Missouri's urban core as well as rural areas. It's that kind of message that Democrats need to start sending - That we're working in the interests of all of our constituents. So far that's not the perception out there . . . That needs to change."

Just about everyone who has met him agrees that State Sen. Holsman has a unique approach to elected office but only time will tell if this Kansas City nice guy will meet with long term political success. A string of recent victories seems to suggest that there's hope for this strategy.

Guess we should legalize weed so everyone is safer.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A 41 Action News investigation has uncovered a Kansas City real estate scheme revolving around forged deeds. In some cases, the supposed signatures of homeowners are people who have been dead for years.

Stay Classy KC

Holsman might be too nice. May not see a knife in his back coming from people he thought he could trust.

He's man of his word though. Better to stabbed in the back then not be a man of honor. (Snark)

live by the sword die by the sword. He's buddy buddy with the Jolly's and Sharp. All four of them have been stabbing everyone in the back. How are we such idiots and keep electing these people into office? No qualified opposition.

He's a man that buys into the whole global warming scam. More BS from our "I'm smarter than you" elected officials. Let me save you by implementing more freaking legislation. Welcome to the nanny state

Holsman is not too nice, he is a DINO.

Why is he sitting away from the crowd all by himself in the balcony?

If he knows Cathy Jolly I guess he is very powerful for 21 hours each week. As long as he wakes up late and knocks off early?

He looks like a long haul trucker waiting for a court appearance in that picture.

1) If Holsman was serious about mending fences and getting things done in Jeff City he wouldn't be talking to TKC the most sexist, lying, vile blogger in the Midwest. 2) Holsman is not a nice guy- he prays on women, cheats on his wife 3) Holsman has already, not two months into his gig lied to constituents about introducing an amendment to SB7. He's Kiki's bitch right plain and soml

He wasnt by himself 9:01. Airick West (or someone that looks just like him) was up there and someone else.

I doubt it's what he meant but what came to mind was something like - keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Crystal if you are going to comment on blog posts, you should do so before drinking all that wine. Otherwise, your excuse for thoughts tend to fade off, such as," He's Kiki's bitch right plain and soml..."

Lmfao!! I thought that was Crystal too or someone that works for her.

IMO Crystal doesnt have much respect from anyone except her little drink-too-much circle. Just my opinion.

at least Jason Holsman is introducing legislation. Something kansas city democrats seem unable to do.

Anonymous said...

Holsman is following in Jolly's footsteps by introducing feel good legislation. Unless he thinks legislation has a pretty good chance of passing, he won't even make the effort. In stead, saying there are too many lobbyists, he doesn't even try.

Holsman isn't a good guy. He's simply a politician.
