THE TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! FALTERING MAYOR SLY JAMES FAILS TO LEAD KANSAS CITY VIA THE INTERNETS!!!
Kansas City Mayor Sly James prepares to make his 3rd State Of The City Address and what's clear is that he has disengaged from KCMO and retreated to the Internets as we approach election season . . . As a blogger, I recognize the Internets tactic.
Accordingly . . .
THE STATE OF THE CITY LIVE STREAM FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS REVEALS THAT MAYOR SLY IS AFRAID TO TALK TO KANSAS CITY VOTERS FACE TO FACE!!!
A few more examples of Mayor Sly's media play . . .
- The newspaper is sucking up to Mayor Sly and pushing for local control of the police via Internets editorial that hasn't really moved the dial whatsoever. Today's missive: Police board spends little time on Kansas City's high murder rate . . . Of course this editorial doesn't mention that MAYOR SLY IS A MEMBER OF OUR POLICE BOARD and he's usually more concerned with his toy train streetcar than the local murder count.
- Sly's Twitter account is mostly congratulatory Public Relations chatter
- The KCPT Live Stream isn't set up for much user interaction . . . The mayor isn't communicating, he's using social media and the Internets as a receptacle for propaganda.
And here's the question . . .
AS THE SPRING/SUMMER SEASON OF MURDER AND YOUTH VIOLENCE APPROACHES . . . KANSAS CITY MIGHT NEED MORE THAN AN INTERNETS MAYOR!!!
Kansas City violence is already on the uptick and the only thing that's clear at the outset of this disaster is that Mayor Sly's tech savvy Internets style of leadership clearly isn't working to prevent so much local chaos.
And all this has inspired tonight's playlist.
Thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday Night . . .
