TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! INSIDERS FEAR POTENTIAL COUNCIL LADY KATHERYN SHIELDS MAYORAL RUN COULD HURT CITY HALL GIRL POWER!!!
Like it or not, the list of potential candidates for the next Kansas City Mayoral election is steadily increasing with every passing week.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY INSIDERS FEAR THAT 4TH DISTRICT AT-LARGE COUNCIL LADY KATHERYN SHIELDS MIGHT RUN FOR MAYOR AGAIN!!!
Her previous attempt was a pricey but unsuccessful affair and Katheryn Shields has seemed to always covet Kansas City's highest office. However, this time around some timely campaign donations from top power brokers have raised eyebrows among insiders.
One perspective . . .
"Of course she's doing to run for Mayor. She's working against the clock now and it seems to be the conventional wisdom among all of the consultants and even Sly's people that the next Mayor of KC needs to be a white woman needs to be the next establishment candidate in order to balance public perception and appeal to the biz community. This takes us back to the glory days of Mayor Kay Barnes who is still the development queen of Kansas City."
To be fair, Council Lady Shields hasn't made any formal announcement yet and while her campaign funding list is steadily increasing, this council member seems extremely committed to historic preservation more than any other public official and seems to be delving into the deets of council work.
Still, what's important here is that the race for Kansas City's next mayor is STARTING NOW behind the scenes. Council Dude Scott Taylor is the first to openly declare his plan to run, we expect Council Dude Wagner will do the same shortly and now a litany of ladies including Former Council Lady Cindy Circo, Council Lady Jolie Justus and now Council Lady Katy crowd the field. The reality here is that all this ambitious chatter and jockeying for the next big job will undoubtedly impact City Hall and any hint of unanimity among elected officials in the foreseeable future.
