TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! QUINTON LUCAS JOINS THE KANSAS CITY 3RD DISTRICT AT LARGE COUNCIL RACE!!!
Here's an important development for Kansas City East Side politics that could change the local landscape.
KANSAS CITY LAWYER QUINTON LUCAS FINALLY JOINS THE 3RD DISTRICT AT LARGE RACE FOR CITY COUNCIL!!!
He just filed late last week and now he's already online asking for cash via PayPal . . .
Here's the word according to a Kansas City Insider:
"Lee A. Moore, Treasurer. I think that means Pat Gray is running his campaign, as Lee A. Moore is also Taylor's treasurer. Quinton's site and Taylor's look like they were made by the same person. I always thought Marcus was going to run the campaign. The fact that he might have got Gray on board begs several questions about the alleged double-dealing that Gray was accused of against the (JaxCo???) Vote Yes campaign in support of the Vote No campaign . . . "
Also of note during this race . . .
TKC WISHES DEE EVANS A SPEEDY RECOVERY FROM SLIGHT HEALTH TROUBLES AND WE HOPE SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO DROP OUT OF THIS CONTEST!!!
While we may not agree with her on everything, the more people particiating in this town's Democracy . . . The better.
As for Quinton Lucas . . . He's the favorite among Kansas City power elite on the East Side who just might be overestimating how well he'll go over on the other, nicer, Northland side of the bridge . . . East side elite politicos might not realize it (because they don't get out there very much) but there are actually A GREAT MANY "well-spoken" (sorry) well-educated and successful African-Americans doing biz in the Northland of KCMO. Therefore, Mr. Lucas isn't as much of a rarity as they might (mistakenly) think.
Fair play . . . I think political insiders always forget how much PEOPLE HATE ALL POLITICOS AND JOURNALISTS IN GENERAL!!!
Here's our 3rd District round-up from a couple of months ago as this race gets even more crowded.
