Do We Need Another Jock @ JaxCo?!?



Again, we've covered this but today was Frank White's big debut that we've been talking about for almost a year . . .

KCTV5: Royals Hall of Famer Frank White running for Jackson County Legislature

Northeast News: Former Royals player steps up to legislative plate

KMBC: Former Royal Frank White running for office

Now a few thoughts . . .

- After 40 years of Fred Arbanas . . . Does Jackson County need another legislator who is more adept at playing with a ball.

- You saw him standing next to Rev. Miles . . . What do you think that means???

- Let's not forget that the Royals really didn't like him near the end . . . And how much luck do you think a local will have getting him on the phone?!?!

We still don't know what to make of Frank White but it's clear that there hasn't been much honest discussion of him as a candidate . . .

More in a bit . . .

You have to be a pretty whiny bitch to annoy the Royals - a team that is starving for players of "legend" status.
But I'm sure he'll win because this town of rubes just loves the memory of young Frank turning all those double plays.

None of these candidates ever have any ideas, suggestions, recommendations, or anything else to say about WHY they're running or how they might contribute to the community.
It's always about who endorses them and who they know and in this case, as usual, the folks in the picture are mostly the snouts in the trough gang.
Only the names change and the taxpayers just keep picking up the tab.

Does he have a campaign website?

Yes there's just nothing like having Rev. Miles cozying up to you to give the public a really good idea of what they may be in for.
Anybody need another East Patrol police station? With contract cost overruns and no idea of where they came from?
He's your man!

If he is next to Miles, Sherwood gets my vote by default.

I will probably hate his fucking politics, but I will say that I did some business with Frank four or five times over the last 30 years and he was a class act every time I dealt with him.

Very charismatic, charming and conversant.

The fact is, several years ago the Royals SHOULD have made him manager. Jesus, the fuckers lost over a hundred games a year for a hundred years. He wanted the job and they were idiots not to let him try it.

I am sure I will hate his politics, but...

Let's see - the Royals dissed me bad. The T-Bones suck and I don't want that anymore. All the beer distributorships are with former Chiefs players. Hey, how about J-county politics? Voters are stupid and we never have to be right about anything. Yeah, that's the ticket!

Oh Frank! Rev. "I owned a bunch of land that I sold to the city for too much money for the new East Patrol" Miles?!? Say it ain't so!!

Ben Sharp to Mike Sharp said...

Now Boy, I want you to promise me that Frank is a "good Nigger" and not one of those uppity Niggers that we will just have to get rid of when they mistake their place? At least you did not bring me a Goddamn wetback! I mean he does have a kind of House Nigger way about him.

Mr. Tony,
I am okay with Mr. Frank White as my County Legislator. He won't threaten to burn down my house if he don't get his way.
Really. Ask Councilman Paul Danaher how it felt to go up against the firefighters.

He's a crook and can't be trusted. His career ended well over 30 years ago. Nobody really even knows who this guy is. KC Royals obviously already washed their hands of the tantrum thrower. It's a shame there is nothing left in this town's Black population that even remotely embodies leadership.

I thought he lived in WyCo. I used to see him around Mission. He was always a classy guy, but there were lots of people close to the Royals who have never liked him.

Sherwood Smith is a nigger thug who lucked into getting on the fire department. Frank white has my vote.

Why is Sherwood running? Can't get a job now that Henry closed the loan business?
