Unless you work for KCMO or Jackson County that is a no-no.

It is a no-no at Jackson County too.

I have no problem kicking JaxCo for a lot of things, but the county does at least have an ethics provision that the whores at the City could not live under.

What about the tickets that Jackson County Parks and Recreation Director Michele Newman demands and receives from event sponsors?

Uh huh! Like there are no favors making their way to the county leaders from the sports complex.

What d'ya have? said...

Newman sucks up the freebies but always asks us to give them to a family member. Usually it is her mother or sister. When you do not comply, you are no no longer allowed to sell product at the 4th of July or Christmas events. And yes she calls it "Christmas in the Sky." If you mention that there are Jewish citizens in Jackson County she just rolls her eyes.

Somehow, 9:46's experience is not surprising. Michele is quite a princess.

Doesn't Jackson County have suites at the stadiums?

No

The City should be forced to cede the suites in Sprint Center.
