TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE PUTS LEGISLATORS ON NOTICE!!!



Here's a bit of encouraging news that speaks to a surprising challenge posed to biz as usual at the Courthouse.

To wit . . .

THIS WEEK OUR BLOG COMMUNITY CONFIRMED WORD OF AN EPIC JACKSON COUNTY MEETING WHEREIN EXEC FRANK WHITE TOLD LEGISLATORS TO CLEAN UP THEIR ACT!!!

The topic of cushy contracts and PR chatter was top on the list for this newbie politico. At first we heard about this meeting as a stab against some legislators be we confirmed the deets with other 12th & Oak insiders who offered their spin on this cleanup effort that may be doomed but is inspiring nonetheless.

"They (the legislators) aren't going to be able to say, 'This is the way we've always done things' any longer" says one source close to the exec . . . "You can call it naive but it seems like Frank is trying his hardest to do the right thing."

To his credit, Exec White has brought in new people who seem to know the legislative process and but aren't entrenched in courthouse politics. It seems that Exec White is hoping to avoid getting burned again by all the things he doesn't know regarding biz as usual in JaxCo . . . Accordingly, we hear that the sordid talk surrounding County contracts might be where he launches a cleanup effort.

Again, this effort could be in vain but the newsworthy bit of behind the scenes chatter is that Exec Frank White is willing to leverage his popularity against other legislators in order to avoid further contract, political and patronage embarrassment that has surrounded the county since its inception.

Really?
So what happens when Daniels -Young gets the sweet deal and heads the Election Board?
Who will take over her current spot? Tindal needs a puppet and Jim Nunnelly needs a job. ComBat will be run by Nunnelly. He never really left.

Guess who slides into the money seat!
If this musical chairs plays out then Frank White is all hat, no horse.

Was he "trying his hardest to do the right thing" when his son got a sweet now-show pad at over $100k a year at the KCATA?

There are all sorts of signs that the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted in Frosty KCMO is starting to crumble.

We heard, says one source close to the exec, it seems that we hear behind the scenes chatter.

So, in other words, Weasel Words Gone Wild!

^^^^ It's politics. Weasel words are the native language. If you don't like it, don't vote and don't keep coming back here repeating the same old shit day after day after day trying to convince people when you can't even stop reading this blog.

Such a big trough.
So many many snouts.

Frank and his family are now feeding at the taxpayer trough, but want to act like they are doing US the favor with his high minded principles and such. Give me a break Caleb.

He needs to drop Miriam Hennosy and bring back Joan Dickey. Joan understands the County. Miriam is just a bitch.

The legislature will destroy the Ball Boy if he does not get in line. At the end of the day, he does not deserve to be where he is at and the boy knows it.

Joan always had he respect of the Parks+Rec Department, which would help Frank White in the long term. That department could be much more active and helpful in the area of economic development.

6/30/16, 5:11 PM Robbie Mackinen should be in state prison after that one. Where is the FBI?

Justice said...

FBI should look at that hire for sure.

I have heard Frank give talks four times. He is terrible. He needs to trash the people that he is listening to who tell him that he is "doing fine."
