TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! RAGE AMONG KANSAS CITY FIREFIGHTERS AS MAYOR SLY SHOWS THEM WHO IS CHIEF!!!
There's quite a bit of Kansas City heat in the aftermath of yesterday's vote to outsource and privatize KCFD Ambulance Billing workers.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT LOYALISTS, SUPPORTERS AND WORKERS RAGE AS MAYOR SLY HAS CLEARLY STARTED AN EPIC CRACKDOWN ON THE DEPARTMENT!!!
Let's review . . .
Insiders remind us that Mayor Sly and his supporters on the City Council have . . .
- Closed Down Fire Stations In A Divisive Bid To Send More Cash To The Toy Train Streetcar
- Called Out The KCFD On Overtime And Presented Some Considerable Challenges On Recent Academy Class Staffing Decisions
- This Week The Outsourcing And Privatization Was Just The Latest Slap In The Face From Mayor Sly To The KCFD
One Kansas City Insider puts it this way . . .
"Yesterday, Mayor Sly James just wanted to show the KCFD that he was boss. It wasn't about the best deal for the city. This is a STINKO deal that doesn't offer any real benefit for taxpayers. The Mayor simply wanted to get his way. It's the same 'win at all costs' style of politics that has defined his Administration."
Like it or not . . .
MAYOR SLY JAMES HAS SMACKED DOWN THE KANSAS CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT THREE TIMES AND NOBODY BUT KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS IS WILLING TO SAY IT IN PUBLIC!!!
Now, given that some of these people have actively made tacit death threats against TKC . . . It's not like we're gonna cry any crocodile tears for them. It's always hard to for laymen to support the KCFD because when (some) of them get mad over a mundane political disagreement, they threaten to burn your house down or leave you dead at the scene of an accident.
But I digress . . .
The more important point here is . . .
LET'S STOP PRETENDING THAT EVERYBODY LOVES MAYOR SLY JAMES BECAUSE THIS TRIPLE KANSAS CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT SMACKDOWN ISN'T GOING TO BE QUICKLY FORGOTTEN AND MAY SIGNAL AN ALL OUT WAR OR A SERIOUS DECLINE IN KCFD POLITICAL POWER!!!
