THE TKC WEEKLY POWER RANKINGS!!!
At the end of this eventful Kansas City work week . . . Carly Baker looks rather kick-ass amid her UFC adventures . . . And everyone notices the strong smell of a MASSIVE 11LB WEEK BUST IN THE NORTHLAND.
Meanwhile . . . Check this week's list of the strongest on the local scene:
Kansas City Mayor Sly James - Recovering from some major missteps. There's not a reporter in town willing to cross him thanks to his overwhelming charisma.
MO Secretary Of State Jason Kander - Fulfilling promises to vets and other early voters.
Congressman Kevin Yoder - His ability to make GOP reactionary monetary policy seem not so crazy is a powerful skill.
Congressman Cleaver - Still Kansas City's most influential elected official in D.C.
Council Lady Jan Marcason - Coming out of Mayor Sly's shadow and making quite a bit of noise for the toy train closer to UMKC and other pet projects.
Ryan Kath - KSHB dominated JJ's Aftermath Coverage and Kath's reporting was a big part of the equation.
Eric Chaloux - An EPIC water investigation got a few results this week.
Hey Cameraman - Kansas City's Social media and digital new gathering guide.
Bottom Line Communications - John Landsberg - Our mainstream media competition GOLD STANDARD.
DeAnn Smith - Digital Content manager extraordinaire who isn't afraid to rewrite her partners @ The Star.
