TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! WANNA KNOW WHY KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY IS SMILING ABOUT QUESTION 1?!?!
Mayor Sly James is the most charismatic and beloved elected official in Kansas City modern history.
He's also exceptionally smart.
Right now we're working on a lot of background stuff but this tidbit seems apropos for a Friday morning.
It's a great detail that everybody is going to deny but most realize that it's a fact . . .
Again, the question is: Do you want to know why Mayor Sly is smiling about Jackson County Question 1?!?!
QUESTION 1 MAKES KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY JAMES SMILE BECAUSE THE CIVIC COUNCIL AND LOCAL ELITE CAME TO HIM FIRST TO PASS THE TAX AND HE SENT THEM ACROSS THE STREET!!!
This fact is CONFIRMED BY VERY SINGLE CONSULTANT AND ACTIVIST WORKING FOR AND AGAINST QUESTION 1 . . . And while none of them will admit it on the record, they can't stop giggling when somebody mentions it.
Credit where it's due . . . We complain that Mayor Sly spends tax money like a drunken sailor but clearly his Marine Corps. training has taught him how to dodge a bullet and/or step around a landmine.
The polling on this one is shady and the numbers I've heard are closer than I'd like against the tax (-6 points) but what's really important here is that for all of his faults Kansas City Mayor Sly didn't want anything to do with this tax and his good judgement might soon be confirmed.
