TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY 3RD DISTRICT AT-LARGE COUNCIL CONTENDER DERRON BLACK REVEALS TRUTH TO POWER STRATEGY!!!
It was a pleasant surprise to run into my friend Derron Black at Westport Coffeehouse this week.
Mr. Black was in good spirits and we talked for just a moment about local politics and the upcoming election season.
While I groused about the exciting challenges faced in running this dump of blog, Derron Black shared a hint of a new strategy that he's going to use during the upcoming Kansas City election season.
To wit . . .
DERRON BLACK PROMISES A MORE HONEST AND STRAIGHT FORWARD APPROACH TO TALKING ABOUT THE 3RD DISTRICT THAN WHAT'S TYPICALLY OFFERED BY LOCAL POLITICOS!!!
Mr. Black said . . .
"Right now, politically speaking, I don't have anything to lose and we're at a point where the 3rd District and all of Kansas City is in desperate need of a real conversation about the problems we're confronting."
Moreover . . .
"I just don't hear anyone speaking to the issues that are critical for Kansas City."
To that end, Mr. Black said that he's ready to share some personal and political insights via social media.
Now, there are a lot of things about Derron Black that people don't know . . . First and foremost, he had a great sense of humor AND he's actually a fiscal conservative on most issues related to the KCMO budget.
Given recent legal trouble, we don't know how Mr. Black's campaign will develop but any contribution to the local discourse that he makes will be a welcomed departure from the status quo of election time talk.
Developing . . .
