TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! MAYOR SLY AND CITY COUNCIL SMACKDOWN OVER THE OLD AND BUSTED FIRE BUDGET RIGHT NOW!!!



Here's a bit of Kansas City Thursday afternoon fun involving politicos slap fighting amongst each other...

RIGHT NOW MAYOR AND COUNCIL ARE GANGING UP ON COUNCIL DUDE SHARP OVER FIRE DEPT CUTS!!!

This seems to be over the billing center outsourcing story TKC TIPSTERS broke previously...

It's getting ugly from what we hear and it features the mayor talking trash on the FD while everybody else wonders why every dime of this town's cash is dedicated to the toy train.

Rather than hide on Twitter, it's important to bring this discussion out into the open...

And they sent it back to committee... COUNT THIS AS A VICTORY FOR COUNCIL DUDE SHARP AND THE KCFD!!!

Money for trains and that's it.

Everything but the Toy Train can go to hell.

And that's exactly where it's headed.

Had anyone ever been re-elected mayor without the support of the fire mafia?

I don't know. But fire departments shouldn't have to fight and go to war with city officials for funding.

It should be a top priority.

This turd has Troy Schulte's name all over it. Will this dumb ass council please fire this ass hole.

Obviously Downtown is a compete money pit and doesn't generate enough tax revenue. So everything else suffers as a result.

The Freedom Inc. pastors are worried about a few billing jobs, but what they really should be looking into is all the nepotism in the Fire Department's hiring of fire fighters. The Fire Department doesn't even remotely resemble the community it serves, and that's because there are so many relatives working there.

My house almost caught on fire and these guys absolutely were superb in response time and the action they took. Not to mention they looked hot as fire in their get-ups. Give them all the money they want, especially for the fire gear and sessy axes.

The fire guys will NOT take no for an answer. Surprised that Sly thinks he's strong enough to take on the fire fighters.

There are brighter minds at the zoo, in the primate pen.

Kansas City is run by a collection of total idiots.

Actually, KCMO is "run" by insiders who use the public treasury as their own personal ATM machine.
The collection of iditos referenced above ar simply the order takers and water carriers for the assorted swells.
KCMO doesn't have an actual city government that addresses the needs of the residents.
It's a taxpayer concierge service. And tipping IS allowed.

What are you guys talking about. Fire doesn't want the billing office, they refused to put them in the union, and forced them on 500. This is all John Sharpe trying to hang on to his baby, that he was fired from after blowing all the cash.
He stalled the vote again, that vote needs to happen. They can call them great employees all they want to avoid employee backlash, but many of them were educated in the kcmo school district and cant find their ass with both hands. When the finance committee figures out that they were just thrown a bunch of bullshit, they will be back....quick. Ed Ford...wise up and get out of the ring with John Sharpe, you are going to look like fool.

Everybody wants to know why John Sharp is hell bent on saving the billing office? Does he have close personal relationships with the fomer MAST billing employees? This is really hard to understand! Why would he make this so personal with his colleagues?

Ask that racist Martha Hoover. At least the old MAST employees would get to see her most hated ass be booted. Her and John have quite the little relationship. Might even border on an ethics violation. Come on John.....what's going on there?

Quit pickin on poor black lady's just tryin to earn a living,
I'm glad the firemen are helping them out. I hope they win.

Why is the mayor fighting so hard for a private company? They already voted this down once!
Maybe Sly has an inappropriate relationship, ask why is he willing to burn the place down with jan and Cindy's help?

None of the workers are losing their jobs, they are moving into positions that need to be filled and already budgeted for. Were any of you listening to all of it
?

KCMO Fire Department, God I remember the good old days when they held their breathe over a contract and walked right off the job. Suddenly very suspicious fires began all over town. A lumber yard burned for a week. The police at one point manned the trucks and the hoses. KCMO fireman are dirty lowdown bastards when they don't get their way. Look at their history from past strikes. They are evil.
