TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! CONFLICT?!?! KANSAS CITY MAYOR PRO-TEM CINDY CIRCO NEGOTIATED ENERGY DEAL INVOLVING KCP&L BEFORE SHE TOOK PUBLIC AFFAIRS JOB WITH THE COMPANY!!!
As City Council elections approach, let's not forget that our blog community was the FIRST TO BREAK NEWS ABOUT CINDY CIRCO'S PUBLIC AFFAIRS GIG with KCP&L.
In the aftermath of our news, KC Star columnist, blogger and overlord Dave Helling bestowed his blessing on the job anyhoo.
Nevertheless, our blog community recently uncovered NEW fun facts which shed more light on Cindy's new gig.
To wit . . .
KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS POINT OUT SEXY CINDY CIRCO INVOLVEMENT IN A BIG ENERGY DEAL WITH KCP&L NOT TOO LONG BEFORE SHE LANDED THE NEW POSITION!!!
Let's make it plain . . .
A local solar company recently earned a 40-building deal with Kansas City involving nearly 4,000 solar panels via a 20-year solar lease valued @ more than $3 MILLION
The deal was years in the making and described as "one of the state's largest solar deals with a municipality."
But it gets better . . .
COUNCIL LADY CINDY CIRCO WAS NAMED AS A "KEY PLAYER" IN THE DEAL BY THE KANSAS CITY BIZ JOURNAL!!!
And then . . .
SURPRISE . . . KCP&L BID ON THE DEAL AND WON A HUGE CONTRACT TO HELP INSTALL SOLAR PANEL ON KANSAS CITY OWNED BUILDINGS LIKE THE CITY MARKET!!!
Here's more evidence of the deal that incorporates just about every aspect of city government . ..
"The city of Kansas City, Mo., is partnering with KCP&L and Brightergy, a local solar energy company, to install solar panels at 45 city locations. In total, 61 25-kilowatt (kW) systems will be installed, for a total of 1.5 megawatts of solar power. Police, fire department and community center buildings are among those getting the solar panels."
Take a look at another City Hall presser touting the solar panel installation with the help of Cindy's employer KCP&L.
Again . . .
SEXY CINDY IS LISTED AS A KEY PLAYER IN THIS MULTIMILLION DOLLAR KCP&L DEAL AND THEN TAKES A JOB WITH THE SAME COMPANY JUST A FEW MONTHS LATER!!!
Take a moment, take a deep breath, give this some thought . . .
AND NOW OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY MUST DECIDE IF SEXY CINDY'S ROLE IN THIS GREEN SOLAR PANEL DEAL REPRESENTS A CONFLICT EVEN IF MAINSTREAM MEDIA IGNORES THE QUESTION!!!
The evidence is all right here and we feel like both the City legal and mainstream media newsies were too quick to casually dismiss the matter while OUR BLOGGY COMMUNITY DID MORE INVESTIGATION and turned up some surprising deets that voters and taxpayers need to know so they can judge for themselves. Natch.
