KANSAS CITY 3RD DISTRICT INSIDERS CELEBRATE TALK OF AD HOC GROUP AGAINST CRIME LEADER BRYAN DIAL RUNNING AGAINST JERMAINE REED FOR CITY COUNCIL!!!
Remember that ousted KCPS Board Member Joe Jackson has already started his 3rd District campaign to little fanfare . . .
Meanwhile . . .
This blog has long documented a great deal of antipathy toward the youngest member of the City Council from his own constituents.
Now . . . Talk of the Bryan Dial candidacy is different . . .
Mr. Dial is one of the most respected young leaders in Kansas City's 3rd District. His Ad Hoc work has come at a time when local homicide rates have started to drop in the urban core for the first time in years and the UMKC graduate already has garnered an IMPRESSIVE list of civic and faith community accomplishments thanks to his nearly constant volunteer service.
TKC REAL TALK and why this is an important upcoming 3rd District battle: Mr. Dial has established himself as a rising star in the 3rd District anti-crime and faith community whereas Councilman Reed has more connections among the Kansas City power elite and senior 3rd District denizens like his mentor Alvin Brooks . . . This could be NOTHING LESS THAN AN ALL OUT POLITICAL FIGHT FOR THE FUTURE of Kansas City's 3rd District. Previewed FIRST here on TKC. Natch.
