KANSAS CITY POWER RANKINGS: STRONGEST ONGOING LOCAL DEBATES!!!
Quick switcheroo tonight, we know the power players all too well, so tonight let's take a look at the top points of contention that continue to confront Kansas City.
To wit . . .
CHECK THE TOP 5 ONGOING DEBATE IN KANSAS CITY WHICH DEFINE OUR LOCAL DISCOURSE!!!
We'll try not to take sides but simply guide our blog community to a greater understanding of ongoing problems. Take a look:
Will Kansas City Ever Get Honest Toy Train Streetcar Ridership Numbers???
Will another $200 million at stake, this could be the most expensive question Kansas City confronts. So far Council Lady Heather Hall is the FIRST to step up and call for a one-year review of the streetcar which we hope includes an INDEPENDENT ANALYSIS of ridership numbers beyond Twitter cheerleading. Like it or not, Kansas City's penchant for exaggeration is cute but with so much cash on the line these stats start to become exceedingly important.
Can The KCPD Chief Silence His Critics???
The Chief might not have as much support as he did a couple of years ago when crime was at an all-time low . . . But there are undoubtedly a lot of people who think he's doing a good job along with so many critics who mostly object to the recent media statements of the top cop. Blog posts and tweets haven't effectively answered these folks . . . Many of whom are former supporters . . . One of the greatest tasks the Chief now confronts is to directly answer criticism in action or word. What's important to note is that the Chief has done as much in years past and pledges to continue the conversation.
Will KCMO End The Homicide Surge???
On a related note . . . With more children hit and killed by gunfire as of late . . . A great many Kansas City residents are wondering if the current uptick in violence will ever stop. There aren't any easy answers but the chorus of community concern is growing louder with every gunshot fired.
How Can We Support Women Seeking Elected Office Without Encouraging Divisive Identity Politics???
Women were once denied the right to vote in the U.S. and they represent the better half of the population so a bit of "sensitivity" to the plight of female politicos isn't such a bad thing. However, in Kansas City there's a smallish clique which has turned empowerment into a battle cry for self-promotion and that has been harshly rejected by voters and local Democrats. Clearly, there's a need for balance and compromise despite the fact that so many politicos are incapable of as much.
When Will They Tear Down Verrückt???
Decapitation confirmed leaves no doubt that this monstrosity must come down after a comprehensive investigation. Anything less would be risking another tragedy and believing the word of a corporation that assured safety to begin with and right up to the point of one of the most horrific water park atrocities in recent local history.
As always, this list has been compiled according to scientific TKC polling and market research data and it's a weekly comprehensive guide to local powerful people.
