TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! CONTROVERSY EXPLODES OVER MAYOR SLY'S KANSAS CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT FASHION STATEMENT!!!
The JJ's Inferno news is being extinguished by snowfall stories today . . .
But there's one last aspect of this hot mess that's worth discussing . . .
MAYOR SLY JAMES TURNED MANY HEADS RECENTLY WITH A SURPRISING KANSAS CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT FASHION STATEMENT THAT SPOKE TO THE POLITICAL DENIZENS OF KC PROPER!!!
We talked to more than a few insiders regarding the mayor's KCFD haute couture and here's what they had to say . . .
"The Mayor sent a clear message yesterday. He's on KCFD's Team and he won't be challenging their strangle hold on Kansas City's finances any time soon. We can now forget about pension reform for the next 6 years."
From a media perspective . . .
"If (Former Kansas City Mayor) Funkhouser would've name dropped the Mayor of LA and spent most of the press conference joking around during a deadly fire situation . . . How would the media have handled him vs. the way they're treating Mayor Sly James?"
Finally . . . A neighborhood volunteer had this to say . . .
"Mayor Sly seemed so calculating and separated from the real story of a neighborhood and workers in crisis. He put on firefighter gear in what seemed like a desperate attempt to gain acceptance and because he still doesn't seem confident as an elected official. The Mayor could have led the effort to help the neighbors or workers but he chose to play firefighter and defend corporations. In a time of disaster, Mayor Sly James was looking for someone else to take a leadership role."
Strange . . . I used to joke about Council Lady Cindy Circo showing up in fire fighter gear in Council Chambers and now it seems that KCFD running City Hall and marking a top elected official as one of their own is now a reality under Mayor Sly's leadership or lack thereof . . .
