He did run a good campaign when he first started. Freedom was too much for him to handle this time around.

Effin' porch monkey can't get a job in the real world (aka, the private sector). So let's go after the brother who looks most vulnerable come election time.

Welcome to Kansas City.

Sure lets replace a worthless nigger with another worthless nigger

It wasn't Freedom, It was his duplicity on the Westport school repurposing.

I've questioned some of Joe Jackson's decisions, but no question that he is committed to the success of the KCPS. Imagine he and Rea on City Council together.

City Hall often talks about KCPS but is very limited on how they can actually manage it. Hopefully these two will be able to work together on some real solutions for assisting the district.

Our school system is beyond repair. It's beyond bankrupt. We're tossing money into a black hole.

Just Google Money and School Performance: Lessons from the Kansas City Desegregation Experiment and you'll see what I mean.

Starting over with a blank page is the only cure.

Joe is a good man but has some problems dealing with stress of a campaign.

Sly says we're going to have to import kids to KC.

Any other questions?

There is a fix. It's called moving the hell out of this county before the whole damn thing crumbles into a shit heap. Which it will at this rate. No one with any sense is going to stick around here and subsidize this crap.

Sad to see KC end up like this.

If either Jackson or Rea are running for city council with the idea that they're going to try to do something for the KCPS, they need to get their heads screwed on straight right from the start.
The KCMO city council has NOTHING to do with the school district, and both of these folks were on the school board as the district slid into being unaccreditated, which is a rather odd claim to fame.
On the other hand, do either of them have ANY IDEAS AT ALL about what they hope to accomplish if they get elected to the council?
And I don't mean a couple more amateur developers playing with other people's money.
I mean doing something about crime and murders, crappy streets and sidewalks, flooding streets when it rains, and all the rest of the activities and services that cities with actual elected city officials provide their residents.

I have a total lack of confidence in Joe. I've seen his bad side. He's a spite-filled, hypocrite. I'd rather vote for Jermaine than to vote for this guy. The people who offer accolades to Joe, don't live in Third District. Nothing about Joe Jackson is good. Nothing.

7:12 you are ignorant and blind. Education is at the root of every symptom you list. Get out of your shell and think bigger than your tiny unimaginative brain will allow.

if there is anything to what you say, then Joe Jackson, Crispin Rea and everyone else on the school board should have resigned long ago, before the last school election. It takes quite a bit of gall to run for the city council now that they have failed so miserably with the schools. They will both get their ass handed to them.

Joe gotta go. Get this guy OUT of kc politics

The Black Male Monster said...

Just when you think the Black Male Monster can't outdo his last debacle, he runs for City Council. The word "no" has no effect with this monster. No talent, no ideas and no results. The Black Male Monster always rises for attention but is inherently unable to deliver. There's no relief in sight.

Reed needs to be replaced however I am not sure this guy has enough a criminal record yet He might neeed to shore up his resume with some prison time

KCPS has it's own governing board, but City Hall has the ability to partner with the school board to identify problems that extend beyond education standards and pool their resources to create solutions.

I don't know what Jackson or Rea plan to do if they're elected to council; I can't speak to that. What I can say, however, is that they are uniquely familiar with the challenges that the school district faces. Many council members and mayors talk a lot about KCPS but do nothing. Sly apparently thinks Dr. Green should report to him.

As 8:57 pointed out, education is the root of all the problems KC faces. Improving education reduces crime. It brings families back to the city, which also reduces crime. If City Hall and KCPD would partner with KCPS for the betterment of the city, rather than remain as competing political entities, KC could set the standard for how to get a city back on track. It's going to take a lot of partnerships and we're gonna need money that is quickly being gobbled up by additional bond obligations

10:06am You and others focusing on KCPS forget the City of Kansas City, MO has 12 other school districts. These districts exist as separate and distinct political subdivisions from City government under state law.

Jackson or Rea have nothing whatsoever to offer City government in terms of experiences or achievements at KCPS.

elBryan said...

Not true. KCPS plays a direct role in the home values in the urban core and the future of this region. People who choose to write it off as one of twelve other districts in KC fails to recognize that by allowing KCPS to succeed or fail on it's own jeopardizes every other investment this city makes, and gives little support to neighborhoods east of Troost that need the support of good neighbors and city leaders with vision.

2:50PM The quality of life in KC and the residents of KCPS are key to District's standing and lack of good status. Yes, its status does marginally impact real estate values. Perhaps not as much as being isolated since 1954 -- and not allowed to expand with the City.

But neither the status or the potential valuation considerations have anything to do with the two persons you tout as bringing some unique expertise to the City Council.

What makes Rea and Jackson different than Rios and Newsome?
