Who Runs Kansas City? Not Voters!!!
A quick tidbit about Dead Tree Media column that went over like a lead balloon today . . .
Take a look, most of you haven't . . .
Yael: Kansas City’s powers that be don’t always get what they want
More than a few of you sent messages about this one . . .
Here's an important perspective from a Kansas City Insider:
"Take a look at who Yael lists, The Chamber, The Civic Council . . . There may be a few back handed observations but he's basically paying homage to his corporate overloads."
Moreover . . .
"What he doesn't mention is that the membership of these groups is mostly comprised of people who don't even live in our city. So really, if Yael is for local control - That same local control isn't evident among these power brokers."
We looked through this one and it's typically out of touch, out of sync with what's happening in Kansas City neighborhoods and yet another sign of why fewer people are picking up the paper. Natch.
