KANSAS CITY QUESTION: HAS MAYOR SLY'S BETRAYAL OF 'FIGHT FOR $15' & URBAN CORE ANIMOSITY DOOMED GO BONDS???



In a low turnout election Mayor Sly has recently angered some of the most dedicated voting blocs in Kansas City.

Clueless suburbanites and outsiders mistakenly think that all minorities and residents of the inner-city vote the same way but that's not always correct.

Remember . . .

Mayor Sly promised to vote for a minimum wage increase during his campaign for Mayor and when there was very little likelihood that the measure would survive Missouri courts or the Legislature.



Everyone was surprised that the so-called "Fight for $15" withstood a challenge in the Missouri Supreme Court.

Locally, there was a scaled down minimum wage increase that garnered the support of "fair wage" advocates and the Mayor jumped through a litany of rhetorical hoops in an attempt to justify his NO VOTE.



Moreover, in this upcoming election . . . Mayor Sly has voiced his opposition against Question 4 despite an endorsement of every African-American council member.

Like it or not, a coalition of clergy and political groups have expressed their support for this proposal and it's the only thing of interest on the ballot for a great many inner-city denizens.



Here's the reality . . .

Kansas City fair wage fighters are in constant contact and also comprise the ranks of Question 5 weed supporters and Question 4 inner-city development proponents . . . Mayor Sly's record of betrayal on the recent minimum wage increase that's near & dear to the hearts of many urban core denizens has, in fact, become a talking point against GO BOND Questions 1, 2 & 3.



And so . . . The reality is that, if a survey of inner-city political, church and community groups is any indication, GO BONDS don't seem to have much support amid the urban core or the East Side (and definitely not the Northland) despite so many optimistic polls. Tragically, this fact of life is almost completely related Mayor Sly's inability to connect with anybody but lawyers, consultants and middle-class white ladies during the course of his tenure.

I'm really surprised that that three is not one council member willing to get on board with question 5.

That is the only one that is almost guaranteed a win and KC politicians are too scared and timid to support a cause that will help a lot of people and our economy.

Talk about a lack of leadership, cowardice and betrayal. Look no future than all of these roaches in political office who smoke marijuana on the weekends but don't have the courage to stand up for it at the ballot box!

This whole sorry fiasco resembles nothing quite so much as a huge herd of pigs pushing and shoving their way to get their snouts in the trough.
No leadership, serious planning, or honesty whatsoever.
It's every PIG for themselves!
Fantasyland on the plains.

If sly can't keep his word to his own people, why should anyone else trust him?

What a bunch of crap with this GO bond nonsense is coming from City Hall. I have never lived anywhere with people so down on their city than this group. What they are really saying is that no one wants to be here because its Kansas city and the only way people will like us and keep coming here is if if we borrow until we choke in debt so that we can build pretty shiny things for them. Vote no! Except for the animal shelter because the animals don't deserve to keep suffering because of city hall. We wouldn't even be having this discussion if city hall spent public money the way it should instead of giving it all away in corporate welfare.
