TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! NORTHLAND POLITICOS ACTIVELY LOOKING FOR MAYOR SLY JAMES OPPONENT!!!
The Northland has been the fast growing part of Kansas City, Missouri for at least a decade and now politicos from this part of town have finally grown weary of being shut out of the mayor's office.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY NORTHLAND INSIDERS INFORM US THAT THE POWER BROKERS ACROSS THE BRIDGE ARE LOOKING FOR AN OPPONENT TO BATTLE MAYOR SLY JAMES!!!
A KC Insider recently told us:
"These are people with A LOT of money and while they skew conservative, they might not all be Republicans. On this side of the bridge there's a lot of opposition to Sly because we never really see him and most of his work has been focused on Downtown."
Think about this . . .
- Mayor Sly's recent battle against the firefighters won't play well in the Northland AND he was also a force in a losing fight for KCPD local control which puts him at odds for Copland support too. Both of these constituencies alone could turn the other side of the bridge against Mayor Sly.
- The push for the new airport isn't playing well North of the river. Mayor Sly is weak on this issue and his advisory committee bad joke only earned more enemies.
- As we noted earlier, THERE'S ALREADY A NORTHLAND COALITION FORMING AGAINST MAYOR SLY so far they have at least three votes and maybe 4 depending how the election turns out.
And all of this is just to counter mainstream media claims of Mayor Sly's invincibility and charisma.
The talking point which claims a 70% approval rating for the Mayor is bogus and it's being touted by toy train streetcar campaigners. Expect to read it soon in the newspaper on a Sunday.
In reality, Mayor Sly James is facing very real opposition that's already taking hold in the Northland.
