TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS INTERVIEW!!! NO!!! KANSAS CITY SCHOOL BOARD DIRECTOR AT-LARGE AIRICK L. WEST IS NOT RUNNING FOR CITY COUNCIL!!! NOW, WILL YOU PLEASE STOP ASKING?!?!



Kansas City political insiders realize that both that ALL OF THE COUNCIL SEATS for the 3rd and 5th District are now in play and there's a rush to find front runners for the smart money to support.

Yesterday morning I was rushed because I was bidding on mint-conditioned G.I. Joe and about to start a HALO tournament but I still found time to get in contact with Kansas City Public School Board Director At-Large Airick L. West given that his name is at the top of the list for 3rd District City Council hopefuls.

Here was his slightly annoyed reply to a question about the possibility of a City Council run . . .

Airick L. West: "I've responded to this question many times. It apparently doesn't actually matter what I say. So if you don't mind, I have scholar achievement to focus on."

So, that's a no, right?

As far as I can remember, Director At-Large West spend quite a bit of time denying a Council run last election despite a great deal of speculation and now it seems like he's repeating the pattern.

In fairness, he does have his work cut out for him.

Let's take a look . . .

Right now the KCPS is on a fast track for takeover.

On top of accreditation woes, recent revisions in Missouri Education Testing Policy puts even more schools on the brink of takeover and doesn't seem to indicate that the KCPS will keep promises to improve test scores.

A "School Choice" movement is exploding in Waldo/Brookside and that part of Kansas City is on the cusp of moving to secede from the KCPS altogether.

Meanwhile . . . KCPS is doing their best to convince "scholars" that a diploma from the unaccredited district is actually worth something.

Finally, the Teacher's Union is flexing their muscles, stepping up their profile and making moves to push back against crackdowns from the Administration.

So, I believe School Board Director At-Large West when he says that he's busy with other stuff and given the current state of the district it's doubtful that he could promise of hope or change for the 3rd District which seems to be desperate to support new leadership.

DEVELOPING . . .

Dont feel bad, Tony. He seems to have trouble answering questions directly and then wonders why he has so much drama with the ladies.

THANK GOD! I know Airhole, and he without a doubt, one of the dumbest motherfuckers on this planet! He won't bath, stinks and doesn't have a job. Why on the green earth, would anyone even consider this moron for City Council or anything remotely connected to it?????

Thank goodness he won't run for council. He has done a wonderful job for the KCMO school system. It has completely turned around under his leadership.
Our skollers need his leadership. Think how effective he might be if he actually had a college degree!!

"Scholar achievement"?? What a mega-dumb NIGGER! He hasn't the first clue about anything except being a NIGGER, all day, everyday. Worthless, totally worthless.

"I have scholar achievement to focus on."


At KCPS that's like watching the sewage flow until one honeysuckle-sweet-smelling turd floats by - and then "focusing" on it.

Have you noticed how his support on Facebook seems to be diminishing? His updates always seems like they are for show...

BTW, I keep having to tell you. I'm not running for city council either! So please stop asking.

PS: Please don't take my school board job and send it to JeffCity.

Airhead has done such a wonderful job at KCPS that must be the reason he thinks everyone wants him on the city council. Airhead should not even be on the KCPS board.

Ahh Airick- so deep yet so shallow.

So humble and modest yet so damn pretentious.

So focused on education, yet has none himself.

Mr. Tony,
Some poor, demented soul is asking Mr. West for anything? Lord knows he has never delivered beyond platitudes. Mr. west as a council member? Just how darn low is the bar? What next? Mr. James for a second term?

How can he be on the board when he has no college education? Don't be surprised if this dumbass becomes part of this crooked group on the city council.

No, Airwick isn't running for Council. It's his fellow board member Joseph Jackson who wants to run.

Didnt he just happen into the position? He was the only one running at the time I believe, and then just barely won last time with less than 200 more votes than his opponent. He has the nerve to call himself successful?

who on earth cares what West says or does?

can we (even here in Kansas City) spell ABSOLUTE FAILURE?

Anyone that knows him personally (outside of school board member persona)knows his personal life contradicts a great deal with the image he attempts to portray.

Role model? Hardly.

With a clown like West running the school board at one time, anyone who asks why the KCPS are unaccredited probably graduated from a KCPS school. He ought add the title reverend or activist to his name. Any asshole can do that and most do.

I think he wants to add 'Sir' to the beginning of his name.

Airick has always been a joke and full of himself. He is very pretentious and does not care about the 'skolarz' of the district. He has truly been ashame. He is confused about his sexuality and that manifests itself in all aspects of his pathetic life. First he said he would not seek another term on the school board - and he did. Now, I guess, he is trying to 'prepare' everyone for his bid on the City Council...WHATEVER!! Get over yourself, get a job, pay some bills (stop smooching off of Robyn) and get a life!!!

Bad thing is he has a girlfriend that knows nothing about any of this stuff. Poor young girl.
