TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY INSIDERS RAGE OVER THERESA GARZA CONSIDERATION FOR BOARD OF ELECTIONS POSITION!!!

To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY INSIDERS RAGE OVER FORMER JAXCO LEGISLATOR THERESA GARZA EARNING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A HIGHLY COVETED ELECTIONS BOARD GIG!!!
Let's not forget that Ms. Garza was DISQUALIFIED from her effort to claim residency and a council spot in Kansas City's 5th District amid a contest that proved exceptionally divisive and threatened to disenfranchise voters.
Accordingly, the prospect of Ms. Garza moving toward election board work given her previous problems with the rules and regs of the campaign process has many KC Insiders rankled. We don't wanna pick on her but this is Kansas City's Democracy we're talking about and any name circulating for this gig deserves scrutiny.
Right now, the former JaxCo politico works as a Community Engagement, Government Relations and Public Affairs Consultant and quite a few insiders hope to keep it that way as they fear Ms. Garza's influence over elections given her very recent political involvement and disputes with competing factions throughout Kansas City.
