TKC READER: ED EILERT IS OLD SCHOOL
Right now we want to THANK A KICK-ASS TKC READER for just a bit of important commentary about a Golden Ghetto politico spending his golden years in Johnson County public office.
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS TKC READER TESTIMONY REGARDING OLD SCHOOL ED EILERT AND HIS QUEST FOR POWER!!!
Good Afternoon TKC
Just wanted you to know . . . If Ed Eilert wins this election, he will be 79 when he finishes his term! (D.O.B. - 10/29/1939). He will turn 75 a week before the November 4th general election.
I think he is just finishing his 36th year in elected office* ... and trying to get 40!
OP City Council ... 4 years.
OP Mayor ... 24 years.
JoCo Commission , 4th district ... 4 years
JoCo Commission, Chair, 4 years (so far)
Total = 36 years.
That's two years more than Pat Roberts! (D.O.B. - 4/20/1936) who, though he was a staffer starting in 1967, was not first elected to Congress intil 1980.
No wonder people in Johnson County hate Overland Park (and Ed Eilert).
Your mileage may vary but right now in JoCo there seems to be a rebellion against old school politicos . . . Age discrimination or not . . . JoCo seems frustrated with the old school and now it has become a campaign season talking point.
