Jackson County Contender Sherwood Smith Announces Women's Empowerment Initiative With Former Kansas City Mayor Kay Barnes
Today's big Jackson County political event was a presser featuring Sherwood Smith and former Kansas City Mayor Kay Barnes talking about promoting women in local politics and civic life.
Earlier this week we asked in Mayor Kay would help the campaign of Mr. Smith and most of you didn't hold out much hope given the name recognition of Kansas City Royals Legend Frank White.
Mary Sanchez wrote about this on Sunday night and earned a grand total of 1 comment on the election tidbit . . .Meanwhile our TKC Blog Community analysis has been a bit more thoughtful and prolific.
The election dichotomy is simple: Sherwood Smith has shown voters that he has strong political connections with the ability to connect with insiders (like Sen. Claire McCaskill) all that way to D.C.
Meanwhile, Frank White's baseball campaign signs are probably the best we've seen in nearly a decade and even TKC is not so cynical as to want one with the guy's autograph.
The wildcard here is that Frank White has a legacy of community and neighborhood activism whereas Sherwood Smith is a far more connected mover and shaker but unknown outside of the political realm.
Also . . . Everybody @ Jackson County is once again angry @ Exec Mike Sanders for playing both sides of this election . . . Aaaaaaaannnd Mr. Peanut's deep pockets could (as always) be the deciding factor.
