Blogging Hard Times For South Kansas City And Hickman Mills School Dsitrict

Important perspective and reporting here from a hyper-local community blog that shares deets of political and educational dissatisfaction with Southland Kansas City life for a lot of reasons . . . Most of which are due to political leadership. Take a look: Hopeless in South KC

Sharp,Taylor and McManus believe Cerner will make South Kansas City great again. Does Taylor send his kid to public schools?

Delusional at best.
The Cerner campus will be a fortress with the vast majority staying on site throughout the day and it's likely to have a full range of services for employees to make it unnecessary for them to leave.
Additionally, Cerner employees are mostly tech people making good money and likely to commute to work from Johnson County or other parts of the metro.
The impact to south KCMO will be minimal and consist mostly of increased traffic at certain choke points in the mornings and early evenings.
That's what happens when you elect people who not only have no grasp of economic issues, but preciously little of human nature and common sense.
Empty vessels waiting to be filled with BS from the latest slick looking for a ton of taxpayer money.
How's Mike's taxpayer-subsidized hotel coming?

Taylor is continuing with McManus what was begun with Taylor and Sharp: having a meeting at 7AM once a month so they can say they hold regular community meetings. The problem is that many can't make that time and even if they could the meetings are pointless. Some poor city/county employee is dragged to a meeting to put on a show. That is not outreach. That is not connecting with your community, the people you represent. It's simply a cop out.

How about the superintendent of Hickman Mills does he send his kid to the school district that he runs?

The superintendent had his kid in the early education program for less than a semester before putting him in a private school. According to the superintendent the class size, which he mandated, was too large and he didn't like the curriculum. Guess it's fine for everyone else though.
