TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY AREA NORTHLAND RUCKUS TESTIMONY!!! FORMER TRUSTEE DESCRIBES CLAYCOMO CHAOS!!!
TKC NOTE: For the record, I have absolutely nothing to do with Claycomo and I'm pretty sure I've never even been to that part of the metro.
However . . .
CHECK THIS BIT OF NORTHLAND TESTIMONY DESCRIBING CLAYCOMO CIVIC CHAOS AND POLITICAL BICKERING TURNED NASTY!!!
Now . . . We edited this town because this insightful but wordy rant called out a lot of politicos who barely qualified as public figures and nobody would know anyhoo . . .
What's more important is the description of the vibe in that part of town and even more proof that white people can't get along with each other either.
The most relevant part of what we edited that may be worth noting for context is that there's talk of disbanding (dramatically altering) the police out there and readjusting fire dept. pensions . . . Basically akin to what's going on in KC Proper but on a MUCH smaller scale. Accordingly . . . Claycomo is mired contentious fighting and more than a few conspiracy theories . . . Here's the abridged testimony . . .
Perhaps you have read of the recent clashes between the Village of Claycomo and their police and fire departments. Years of village mismanagement and cronyism is coming to a head with the new Board of Trustees. The story of this small northland village of 1400 includes a history of well documented corruption, mismanagement of funds, millions in lawsuits, documented ethics violations by the former Board of Trustees and a village staff that has attempted to hold the village hostage for years.
In the last election the great citizens of the village spoke at the ballot demanding reform by shifting the balance of power on the Board of Trustees . . .
The board is beginning the arduous task of balancing a budget that had been run into the ground in the last decade. A feat that should not be necessary given the wealth generated from the booming Ford Plant.
The recent meetings have become rather hostile with threats of violence against board members, arrests and expulsions from the meetings. This village of hard working, honest Americans will not be commandeered and the truth of failed governance by the former board, complicity in a tax evasive towing racket, and lifetime employment contracts is beginning to come to light. Hopefully soon with the help of Sunshine laws, remorseful participants in these activities and honest reporting the residents of this great village will know the truth behind millions in lawsuit settlements, a rotting fire station roof, and MUCH MORE. Once the disinfectant of sunlight shines on the bacteria that is the old guard, the village of Claycomo will be able to once again prosper, tapping into the assets of Worlds of Fun, Ford, and its great residents.
