At the conclusion of this day of love in Kansas City, let's finish our discussion with a look at Kansas City duos who are strong in their own right but even better together.
To wit . . .
TAKE A LOOK AT KANSAS CITY'S TOP 5 POWER COUPLES!!!
1. MO Secretary Of State Jason Kander and CEO/Serial Entrepreneur Diana Kander
MO SOS Jason Kander is the youngest Statewide politico in all of the nation and Mrs. Kander is a leading local biz lady. More than anyone else, they represent the very best of Kansas City and a real hope for the future.
2. Councilman Scott Taylor And Attorney/Jackson County Part-Time Employee Cathy Jolly
Together this couple are the toast of 12th and Oak. They posses a list of political, union and social connections unparalleled by almost any other pair working in Kansas City.
3. Kriss And Tracy Ward
While these two don't hold elected office, together they exercise a strong influence over Kansas City's cultural scene. Tracy Ward is leader of the Liberty Restoration Project and a powerful force among the alternative political circles. Meanwhile, Kris is the elder statesman of Kansas City's hard rock music scene and plays with more than few notable bands around town.
4. Congressman Emanuel Cleaver And His Wife Dianne
We're all familiar with Rep. Cleaver's role as Congressman but his wife Dianne is a philanthropic powerhouse who is tirelessly dedicated to volunteering her time for this community.
5. Jackson County Legislator Theresa Garza Ruiz And Kansas City Mayor's Office Intergovernmental Affairs Director Genaro Ruiz.
This Latino power couple also works 12th and Oak with a skill unmatched by most. They've had their share of political opponents but still manage to survive which is no easy feat for any denizen of Kansas City's poltical scene and Latinos in particular.
And so we celebrate the love of Kansas City's political and cultural cultural elite while the rest of us remain powerless and alone in the last remaining hours of Valentine's Day.
