TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXECUTIVE FRANK WHITE LOSING FRIENDS FAST AMONG THE LEGISLATURE!!!
Jackson County Exec is one of the most popular politicos Kansas City has ever seen and his lack of opposition for the Exec Job proves as much.
However . . .
There's a lot going on behind the scenes and the Courthouse and already it's clear that there's a rift betwixt Exec Frank White and the legislators. Here's why . . .
Legislator Dan Tarwater Doesn't Count Himself Among Baseball Fanboys
A veteran of the Legislature and one of the most knowledgeable politicos . . . Legislator Tarwater is now the de facto leader among his colleagues and his plans don't include one baseball celebration after the next for the County. Expect the rift to grow but already budget questions and a quick alliance among other old school legislators has formed.
Legacy Of Former Exec Sanders Persists
Now working out in Sugar Creek . . . Mike Sanders did his best to make everyone happy and his style still lingers throughout the building. By contrast . . .
NEWBIE EXEC FRANK WHITE HAS CUT HIMSELF OFF FROM THE LEGISLATURE EARLY IN THE GAME AND ALREADY THERE'S A DIVISION AMONG THE COURTHOUSE!!!
The bad blood seems to be left over from the transition of power and we'll see if Exec White can mend fences . . .
Crystal Won't Cooperate . . .
As usual, Crystal doesn't have much to contribute but her career plans and "girl power" agenda . . . To her credit, everybody attempts to recruit her without realizing that she's only playing for her own team . . . Count Team Frank White as the latest crew to try (and FAIL) to get Crystal to play ball.
Again . . . There's a lot more going on at the courthouse that's still cooping with aftermath of Federal Investigation that some say isn't yet complete.
