TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY CRITICS OF MAYOR SLY MOVE TO DRAFT FORMER COUNCIL DUDE DAN COFRAN TO RUN FOR CITY HALL TOP JOB!!!
We're starting this week with a game changer and word of growing opposition against Kansas City Mayor Sly James.
Also, it's important to give Kraske and Helling something to do to start the morning and attempt to disprove chatter we're blogging while they're still sleeping in luxurious golden ghetto beds and not grimy basement futons.
To wit . . .
CRITICS OF THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION MOVE TO DRAFT DAN COFRAN TO CHALLENGE THE SEEMINGLY INVINCIBLE MAYOR SLY JAMES!!!
Now, most remember Mr. Cofran as a former Council dude but he has remained active in a variety of local organization most notably as the Chairman of the Citizens Association.
Mr. Cofran has always been a strong presence in the local political scene and awhile back his constant challenging of former Mayor Cleaver made him a hero of sorts to the Conservative set.
Moreover . . .
MAKE NO MISTAKE . . . KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY JAMES IS MAKING A GREAT MANY NEIGHBORHOOD ENEMIES AND HIS RECENT DEFEAT IN BROOKSIDE ABOARD A DOOMED TOY TRAIN STREETCAR PUSH REVEALS MORE THAN A BIT OF WEAKNESS!!!
And yes . . . I expect Mr. Cofran will be coy in his response to this chatter given that his name always comes up as a potential mayoral contender in every election ... HOWEVER . . . Our KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS contend that the move to beg Mr. Cofran to run against Mayor Sly is really just the beginning of grassroots resistance.
In reality, Mr. Cofran would have to reverse his stance on the e-tax in order to tap into Rex Sinquefield cash that he would need to win given that Mayor Sly has a check promised from just about every lawyer and big firm in this town.
Still, the mere mention of Mr. Cofran as a challenger has sent Mayor Sly's people into a tizzy this weekend and more than a few messages to TKC begging us not to post this tasty tidbit.
But make no mistake, Kansas City election season has already started and our blog community is ready to challenge the status quo and reveal that even and invincible politico and trusted acolytes can get a bit nervous when it comes to questioning their power.
