TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! COUNCIL DUDE SCOTT TAYLOR CONFRONTS TOUGH CHOICES AMID HIS QUEST TO BECOME THE NEXT KANSAS CITY MAYOR!!!
First and foremost, 6th District At-Large Councilman Scott Taylor leads the contest to become Mayor with an IMPRESSIVE $330K on hand before any other candidate has even filed for the office.
Now, there are locals checking these documents carefully looking for connections and potential missteps but campaign finance reporting is a boring slog and locals who rage against the "pay for play" connections they see simply don't understand the way politics works and the compromise required of EVERYONE who participates in a broken but functional Democracy ruled by big money. Translation: Given that our President still hasn't handed over his taxes let's not get too worked up over the question of how much paper work impacts voters.
So, here's something more fun . . .
KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY INSIDERS WARN THAT COUNCIL DUDE SCOTT TAYLOR MUST DECIDE IF HE'S GOING TO SUPPORT MAYOR SLY OR JOIN THE VOTING BLOC AGAINST CURRENT TAX AND SPEND AGENDA!!!
Whilst we love to call Mayor Sly a lame duck . . . There's still a lot of damage he can do before he leaves office.
The prospect of a new airport, more cash for the Downtown Hotel, the streetcar extension and a litany of development fights await Council Dude Taylor.
To wit . . .
COUNCIL DUDE SCOTT TAYLOR'S CONSIDERATION FOR KANSAS CITY'S MAYORAL JOB STARTS NOW!!!
So far he has raised a few good questions regarding the airport and it seems like this issue will be the first place he'll split with Mayor Sly but Council Dude Taylor is just as connected to the army of local lawyers and developers as the current Administration so it'll be hard to distinguish himself from all the other suits who will inevitably compete for the job.
And so, the ton of cash powering Council Dude Taylor's big career move is both a blessing and a curse as this 2019 Mayoral front runner has become a political target as well.
