Big Burns & Mac Money For KC Mayor Sly!!!
Kansas City Mayor Sly James has more than a half million already in the bank for his reelection campaign with no opponent in sight.
Meanwhile check this interesting bit of campaign finance reporting from The Pitch showing out-of-towners supporting the mayor's reign:
Engineering firm Burns & McDonnell made it rain late last year for Sly James' re-election
"Burns & McDonnell and its employees contributed $41,650 to James' haul in the last quarter of 2013, nearly a third of his total fundraising for those three months.
On November 6, 263 employees from Burns & McDonnell made contributions to Sly James for Mayor. Of the 266 employees overall who made contributions to James, only 30 (or 11 percent) of them listed Kansas City, Missouri, residential addresses. Most live in Johnson County or Lee's Summit. The firm has about 2,500 local workers."
This is really more of an investment Kansas City will most likely watch it pay off big time when Mayor Sly wins a sorry excuse for an election.
