And so . . .
CHECK THE TOP 5 REASONS SOUTH KANSAS CITY COUNCIL DUDE SCOTT TAYLOR COULD DETHRONE MAYOR SLY!!!
Council dude Taylor has powerful friends...
Council Dude Taylor has list of ACTIVE RELATIONSHIPS among Kansas City politicos that's exceptionally extensive. More than most he has used his office to branch out and create connections with leaders across the spectrum of local politics.
Former Council Lady Cathy Jolly remains the cutest of all Kansas City lady politicos and her last election effort earned more votes than both candidates put together. She recently earned a sweet job @ The County that doesn't require a lot of time in the office so she'd be able to help her hubby campaign and further his political capital. Meanwhile, most of us aren't even sure if Mayor Sly's wife still lives in Kansas City.
Also, just a TKC thought here . . . Cathy Jolly is out of office and still doing very well while maintaining a high civic profile . . . While most politicos can't bear being out of the spotlight, we trust that Cathy Jolly has informed her hubby that even in the event of a loss . . . There is life after politics and a lot of reward in between political jobs . . . Finally, Cathy's cozy courthouse gig kinda reveals that the County Exec Job will still be there waiting for him when it's time.
Small Biz Support
Council Dude Taylor has been slaving away on the small biz circuit and doing a decent job of it. While it can be argued that small biz has it tougher than ever before in Kansas City proper nowadays, at the very least Scott Taylor is talking to these people while Mayor Sly doesn't seem to have time for anybody without access to a corporate jet.
This is key and this is why this post is going to put the Mayor's people in a bad mood . . . Council Dude Scott Taylor is a union candidate. Plain and simple. Moreover, it's mostly the unions and their membership tired of being constantly smacked down who are putting pressure on Council Dude Taylor to run. Behind the scenes, union and labor resistance to Mayor Sly represents a very obvious Achilles' heel and the only real challenge to his second term.
Council Dude Scott Taylor Isn't So Far Behind In The Cash Race Against Mayor Sly
Fundraising for politicos in Kansas City has been tight so far this year and now more than ever local politics is simply a cash game.
Accordingly, Mayor Sly has a commanding $352K on hand in his reelection fund. Meanwhile, South Kansas City Council Dude Scott Taylor leads all of his colleagues with $117K in his campaign coffers right now.
Given union support, many small biz friends and increasing overall antipathy toward Mayor Sly . . . Seasoned Kansas City Insiders and activists are pushing Scott Taylor to take a big risk with his political career.
And so . . . For these reasons and so many more
IS KANSAS CITY READY FOR A NEW POWER COUPLE TO REIGN AT CITY HALL???
