TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! SHOCK!!! SOUTH KANSAS CITY COUNCIL DUDE SCOTT TAYLOR EMERGES AS STRONG POTENTIAL CHALLENGER TO MAYOR SLY!!!



Behind the scenes, Kansas City power players are lining up more than a bit of upcoming election opposition against the reelection of Mayor Sly James.

To wit . . .

SUPPORTERS ARE PRESSURING SOUTH KANSAS CITY COUNCIL DUDE SCOTT TAYLOR TO RUN AGAINST MAYOR SLY JAMES!!!

Now, this is a long shot and we expect Council Dude Taylor to give the "awww, shucks" routine when asked to go on the record about this one.

But it's a fact . . .

More than a few Kansas City Insiders believe Council Dude Taylor presents the strongest potential challenger to Mayor Sly and they're urging him to skip a second term try for the top job.



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.

Cathy Jolly


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.

Union Support


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???



A great many politicos believe so and for these reasons and so many more . . . Kansas City Insiders like the chances of Council Dude Scott Taylor should he decide to run against Mayor Sly.

Scott Taylor is horrid. Can't imagine wasting a vote on him either. Not one of the City Council members should be promoted or re-elected to any political position. they have demonstrated time and time again that they are not trustworthy and have no leadership capabilities. Likability and leadership are too different things. People may like him but that does not make him a leader.

He just looks like a winner. I bet he smells good too.

LOL they think people are this stupid? Maybe they are.

The real agenda (streetcars) will remain on the table as long as these guys can masquerade as their own opposition.

This guy is dumb as dirt. Staff plays him like a piano.

Lesson in City Hall.....kiss Taylor ass, make assistant city manager.

Guy is very prone to kiss kissers. Usually, they see reality after a couple of years, but this guy continues to not get it.

LMAO anyone who can't see through this deserves every rotten kick they get.

You list all his supporters. But what has he done for those who are not union, not grifters, and not crony capitalists? In other words -what has he done for the other 90% of the population?

I can tell you what he and all his cronies have done. Raised taxes, lowered taxes for their friends, ignored crime, dumped millions into a 3 mile Amish bus project, conspired to tear down KCI and essentially borrowed from the city pension funds for ongoing city operations.

Taylor is in the pocket of the Cerner/Kerr southside bio park development. If he were elected mayor he would push hard for a streetcar to go out there. That's his agenda. he's my councilman now and I won't support him for mayor or reelection.

He does not have the balls to fire schulte, mcintyre, kline and the crew. We need someone to clean out 29!!

It's likely he's in this just to siphon off votes that might otherwise go to others not connected to the S'Lie cabal which he just happens to be a part of.

So he's pro-streetcar, presumably pro-new airport, and he has a bunch of hipster fans. How is he different from Sly?

Tony just wants another Mayor with a whack-job wife. The last one was so much fun to Blog about. Tony does not care who it is.

2016 Joint Statement of Mayor Taylor and County Executive Jolly said...

"We would like to thank the good people at Burns and McDonald for (accepting billions of public tax money) to build the walkway between City Hall and the Downtown County Court House so that the Mayor and County Executive do not have to go outside when they want to 'make the beast with two backs' during the work day."

Two sides of the same coin. Take your pick, heads or tails either way CK looses.

Scott is dumber than sly. Scott is more in debt to developers than Sly. Scott has been planning this run for some time. Sly must be replaced but not with Scott.

Doesn't matter who runs, the black leaders have already ruined the city. No hope!
