Kansas City 'Hipster' Mayor Sly James?!?!
Quick tidbit for tonight that we'll explore later . . .
IS MAYOR SLY KANSAS CITY'S FIRST "HIPSTER" MAYOR?!?!
Think about it . . .
- His fashion sense is impeccable yet quirky as exemplified by his signature bow tie.
- Mayor Sly is a champion of all things tech and social media related to Kansas City. Find him @MayorSlyJames
- The Sly James Mayoral Administration is the conductor of the Kansas City Toy Train Streetcar.
Best of all . . .
Mayor Sly is beloved in the city's hipster central . . . The Crossroads.
The last time Mayor Sly made a big appearance East Of Troost and far away from hipster adulation . . . His reception was a bit chilly.
Certainly, there's nothing wrong with the love of the hipster crowd . . . But (THANK GOD) there is more to Kansas City than hipsters on the Internets and hoping to ride the toy train.
Final note . . . Let's offer a bit of hope: Kansas City Insiders credit the Mayor with a charter change vote that could eliminate council districts and garner greater influence for neighborhoods . . . Credit this move solely to the Mayor and it's AN IMPORTANT NOD to so many neighborhood advocates who also support Kansas City's top politico in a way that's not celebrated in the latest trendy gallery.
