SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY JAMES RETREATS TO THE NORTHLAND FOR PARK HILL STUDY HALL INTERNETS LIVESTREAM STATE OF THE CITY SPEECH!!!
The last time the Mayor set foot in the urban core to deliver a major address, some guy from the crowd scared the whole audience and now it seems he frightened the Mayor across the bridge . . .
To wit . . .
CHECK MAYOR SLY'S NORTHLAND PLAN FOR THIS YEAR'S STATE OF THE CITY SPEECH!!!
Here are the relevant deets:
"This year Mayor James will discuss his education, enforcement, employment, and efficiency agenda with juniors and seniors at Park Hill High School, located at 7701 NW Barry Road in Kansas City Missouri, in order to promote civic participation and knowledge of local government among our City’s youth. The event will also feature a student town hall with the Mayor that will be moderated by KCPT’s Nick Haines. KCPT’s education department will be working in tandem with the Mayor’s Office to make school districts aware of the opportunity for livestreaming the event and how it can enhance classroom curriculum."
I'm sure this move will be celebrated by acolytes but it kinda reveals Mayor Sly to be out of touch and in need of a highly controlled PR-Style environment in order to effectively govern.
Yes, yes, the Northland needs attention too but these aren't potential votes for Mayor Sly James . . . They're simply more polite than any other place on the wrong side of the bridge that's growing increasingly impatient with the spendthrift Mayor.

And while the average hausfrau might appreciate this one . . . Taking questions from suburban study hall students live over the Internets actually disconnects the vast majority of Kansas City residents and voters.
