TKC EXCLUSIVE QUESTION: IS KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY JAMES SLIPPIN?!?!
After talking with more than a few KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY INSIDERS we must ask the question that's too scary for most local media to contemplate.
NOW IN THE WINTER OF OUR KANSAS CITY DISCONTENT IT SEEMS THAT THE POPULARITY OF MAYOR SLY JAMES IS FINALLY STARTING TO SLIP!!!
Supporting evidence . . .
- Last night, Brookside residents brought the Mayor's Toy Train Streetcar party to a FULL STOP. As neighborhood concerns about taxes, infrastructure and planning met Sly James instead of the usual condescending surprise that one of the most successful trial lawyers in Kansas City history is also very well spoken most of the time.
- The Mayor is losing the fight @ The Airport as grassroots FRIENDS OF KCI, the Save KCI Blog and The Show-Me Institute have awakened locals to the impending disaster that could result if the Single-Terminal scheme ever takes off.
- Ongoing crime and failing infrastructure apparent during the recent snow storm have shown that the Mayor hasn't made a lot of progress for the city outside a small circle of Crossroads Marketing hipsters, developers and the (sewing) circle of civic elite.
And so we need to ask:
HOW MUCH DO YOU STILL LOVE MAYOR SLY JAMES AMID KANSAS CITY'S DESPERATE WINTER CIRCUMSTANCES?!?!
Again, the Mayor's PR people are good at getting this question squashed among most local media but Internets free speech and the many AWESOME denizens of our gully forum make this inquiry possible. Natch.
