TKC FRIDAY JACKSON COUNTY QUESTION: WILL FRANK WHITE BE HIS OWN MAN?!?!



This morning let's start out with an important question that's been going around local political circles and has the potential to shape the future of Jackson County politics.

The aftermath of this week's landslide victory is important . . .

FRANK WHITE 34,389 (vs) Sherwood Smith 10,097 — in Jackson County, Missouri.

Now . . .

KANSAS CITY INSIDER QUESTION: WILL FRANK WHITE BE HIS OWN MAN AS A LEGISLATOR OR WILL HE SIMPLY SERVE AS ANOTHER COURTHOUSE POLITICAL PAWN?!?!

Here are THE TOP 5 facets of this question to consider . . .

Mr. Peanut Only Cares About A Few Things @ The County


Over the years, Mr. Peanut has been able to give his "stable" of politicos pretty much free reign because he only cares about one thing. Those of you with half a brain can figure out what mostly concerns the Kansas City real estate baron . . . Now, if it's not about that "one thing" or something related to the local property game . . . Mr. Peanut couldn't care less. For the most part . . . This fact of life works in favor of Frank White as a legislator. 

On The Other Hand, Jackson County Exec Mike Sanders Is A Micro-Manager


The County Exec doesn't just want everybody working from his playbook . . . He gets a bit miffed when a member of his "team" is unwilling to fall on a grenade in order to protect the County honcho. The biggest question that confronts future legislator Frank White when he inevitably takes office: Will he submit to the will of the County Exec??? The answer will make or break his political career.

Revenge Time Against The Kansas City Royals And The Stadiums?!?!


Remember The Kansas City Royals basically kicked Frank White to the curb and forced the guy out . . . And now he had a very BIG say over their budget. Funny how life works like that sometimes . . . Sure, everybody is playing nice in public but this relationship could either cause future controversy or simply force KC Royals management to finally eat crow regarding their horrible staffing decisions. Too bad it won't inspire better pitching.

Most People Don't Know What Function County Government Fulfills


Other than collect property taxes at a seemingly arbitrary rate . . . Most Jackson County residents are clueless about what goes on down @ The Courthouse. Expect more than a few politicos to inform Frank White that things are better off that way.

Frank White Baseball Fame Followed Up By Years of Community Volunteerism


Credit where it's due . . . A lot of people don't know about it because Frank White was always very low key about volunteering his time and lending his name to quite a few important community causes over the years. When it comes to community concern for a good cause . . . We know that as a local baseball Hall Of Famer at least, he's always been willing to lend a hand.

And now . . . Let's acknowledge once again that THE QUESTION OF FRANK WHITE'S POLITICAL AUTONOMY IS NOW OPEN FOR SPECULATION and it's something that has more than a few local insiders concerned.

Frank would be stupid to give in to Skippy he will be elected because of his own support and owes Skippy nothing. If he is just another Rubber Stamp he will disapoint a lot of people.

chuck said...

I know Frank will NOT be worried abuot the "Democratic War On Whites".

So that is a good start.

If he lets his petty feud with the Royals in any way affect Jackson County's relationship with the Sports Commission, that will be very bad news.
The taxpayers have hundreds of millions invested in that operation and sure don't need any legal battles with the teams that the county would be sure to lose.
Having said that, there aren't ANY independently-minded elected folks in either Jackson County or KCMO who actually look at their jobs as representing the average resident and taxpayer.
It's easier to go along to get along. His early votes will be good indications.

Are you kiddin? Gawd I hope he fucks with the Glass family on a daily basis.

Tony was always right, the return on investment for professional sports teams is at best a break even deal. Don't get me wrong, I like watching the Chiefs and Royals, but a lot of folks who don't are paying to subsidize billionaires and millionaires at tax payer expense. They are NOT sacred cows, they are in fact operating on the county's largesse.

Just because I like them and am ok with paying the tax doesn't mean everybody is.

Those studies are wrong. You can't measure the impact of a major league team. Without the Royals we would be just like Omaha or Des Moines.

With the Royals and Chiefs we will eventually be passed by Omaha and Des Moines. Go there sometime, they have less crime, better downtowns, and are generally more prosperous.

Conservatives are usually stereotyped as pro wealthy business folks and in fact, I would infer that from your comment.

This study by "Conservative Nutbags" is a light year away from pro business and pro wealth and in fact has the facts and studies to back up the premise, that tax subsidized professional sports teams are a break even proposition at best.

What the fuck are you talking about?

Anonymous said...

Chuck is correct.

Subsidizing professional sports teams is a scam that the public is finally getting wise to.

I wonder if those fuckers even pay the 1% earnings tax? I'd bet just about anything the answer is no.

Miss Sweetie Pie said...

Mr. Tony,
I suppose Mr. Frank White will get baptism by fire, poor thing. I am referring to the Felon Tindall job. Scott Burnett seems to have made a mistake in signing the ordinance allowing blatant graft. I think Mr. Burnett rescinded the order and kicked it over to that worthless Skippy Sanders.
Newly seated Ken Baccus wants no part of that mess, outgoing legislators are no longer beholden to their felon colleague thus they may not help Tindall to keep juicing money out of the county.
I do not recall that position being openly created and advertised nor an RFP being generated. How many money grubbers will Sanders' office budget accommodate?
Will Mr. White allow Combat monies to be used to cover this new expense? Will Mr. White follow his predecessor's lead and simply look the other way as Tindall and Jim Nunnelly manipulate Combat? I hope not!

The first thing that the sock puppet known as "Frank White" is supposed to do is vote to pay off the women that Sheriff Mike Sharp hired at the urging of his ex-wife who are now suing the county for sexual harassment.

Vote for the settlement payments Frank. No matter how large they end up being. The Sheriff picked you because you are stupid enough to follow orders. If you had a brain in your head or spine in your back he would have never encouraged you to run. Do not start thinking now. Just say "Aye" when the clerk calls your name.

Miss Sweetie Pie is so correct: someone buy her a Costco package of batteries as a reward for her recognition of the situation.

Scott Burnett has the reputation of being a "swell guy" who just wants to help little old ladies across the street and save puppies from Chinese buffets.

In truth, Scott Burnett is a crook. Just think about the most recent bit of GRAFT that he engaged in with regard to the Albert Riederer memorial -- which is cancelled thanks to light shined on the transaction by this blog.

You missed the story again Mike Hendricks. I guess you were still drunk from your usual blind drunk the night before that happened as usual.

If Joeseph Stalin said it gets hot in the summer in Africa, he would be right no matter how many folks he purged or how much money he gave to Big Bill Haywood.

Koch brothers Cock brothers who gives a fuck? Is the premise correct and do the facts stated in the Cato Institute article support the premise?

The article from the Cato Institute, as far as I can tell, is not political and if it was political, it would have to be viewed as more left than right.

Again, the article comes out against the big busines of Professional Sports, billionaire owners and millionaire athletes.

I don't think I have my "fingers up tony's ass", I do think you are modestly qualified to wipe yours.

George said...

Why is this question even being asked? Jackson County is a den of corruption run by a bunch of Democratic hacks, none of whom are "their own man." Frank White is independent of all these grifters. He has been successful in life and, at times, has been outspoken.

Anonymous said...

Sharp should be prosecuted on those hires that violated the nepotism statutes. He was putting women on the county payroll what he and is wife entertained for orgies. When he caught his wife "freelancing" with small groups of sex partners he divorced her. So the girlfriends turned against him and filed suit. Sharp should be thrown out of office for that.

The Black Male Monster said...

No Black man is his own man. The Black Male Monster is a peculiar breed. Due to overwhelming insecurity, the need for social acceptance and lack of positive, real life role models, the Black man does not know who he is; and therefore cannot, and will not, be his own anything. The Black Male Monster believes he should be adorned with the finest things in life and honored because he was born Black and Male. Such expectations are not because he has accomplished anything. Quite often, he is raised by a single mother who over-coddled and poorly trained him through/for all of life's obstacles. Any Black male born before 2009 cannot and will not be his own man. He was not raised to be. The Black Male Monster. There's no relief in sight.

Wait until you see the graft under Tarwater -- not since Waris!

Oh and ladies: Truman Health will no longer be allowed to provide contraception products and services under the Tarwater regime.

Anonymous said...

Frank White will do exactly what Mike Sharp tells him to do. Big payments to women who have been harrassed by Sharp and his team costing all of us millions. But Sharp has helped Bankrupt Frank out of lots of his own money problems. Sherwood was stupid not to let the public know just how badly Frank has mismanaged his own financial affairs and the number of creditors knocking on Frank's door. If Frank's mismanagement of his own money is an indication of anything it's that's he's going to keep letting county money be spent on mold infested buildings owned by friends of county staffers, armored tanks, boats, helicopters and other toys Sharp keep buying with money intended for Road and Bridge work. It's going to be business as usual in Jackson County. Sanders will keep the lid on any disagreements in order to make the county look good and preserve his own future and we will just pay the tab.

Those fuckers at the county shut down Erotic City because of "perversion" but the same people have "sex parties" and orgies. Yes, there was one troublemaker there who should have been prosecuted but those county perverts beat their chests and made a big deal about shutting the "sex house" down. Yet they have sex parties.

Speaking of perversion, Lisa Carter should ask Dale Carter about why he wanted to visit the appartment of a woman named Stacy who happens to live very near his studio. Ok I will ruin it. Dale really, really wanted to have sex with her. At least he was honest enough to tell Stacy that he has several other sex bunnies around town. By the way Lisa, he says you are really boring when it comes to sex. Dale says you just kinda lay there without doing or saying anything on the rare occasions that you have sex at all. OUCH!

Frank White can't be good for the parks. He'll take over it just like Denny took over Adair Park. Citizens of Jackson County you need to vote for a change. This current County Executive is only interested in staying long enough to run for a state office. You need someone who is for the citizens and not just out for himself. Vote for change!!! Question where your tax dollars are going. I guarantee you that you will see waste of your tax dollars by this administration. They give themselves excessive wages, pay increases when no one else gets one. Oh I forgot you may get one if you know the right person.

When you take about excessive, I don't think you are talking about the average employee. Those poor bastards are on welfare. Democrats talk about wage inequality and look how they run Jackson County. The Cronies get paid and the workers get the shaft.

If you know a County employee ask them what they think of Sanders. My sister-in-law works they and they treat her like a dog.
