TKC EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY URBAN CORE RAGE AGAINST COUNCIL LADY ALISSIA CANADY OVER ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT SALES TAX BETRAYAL!!!



On the April 4th ballot, a grassroots proposal championed by East Side clergy and broad coalition of urban core political groups asks voters to approve a 1/8th cent sales tax increase. It would generate an estimated $8 million annually to support development east of Troost Avenue. This effort has earned a surprising amount of support throughout KCMO but a recent defection among the ranks of the campaign has infuriated proponents of the measure.

To wit . . .

URBAN CORE ADVOCATES BLAST COUNCIL LADY ALISSIA CANADY OVER HER "BETRAYAL" ON QUESTION 4!!!

For many voters in her district, the alleged flip-flop is a "kick in the gut" and a quizzical strategic move given that 5th District Council-member Alissia Canady resides in a district that will directly benefit from the Central City Economic Development Initiative despite her very recent opposition.

Here's an important quote that's not really TKC's place to make but, nevertheless, THIS KC EAST SIDE VOTER PERSPECTIVE offers insight into the arguments now leveled at the first term Council Lady.

"5th District Council-member Alissia Canady has revealed herself to be a duplicitous apologist. She expressed support of the economic development initiative in private meetings. Her public comments are an invitation for the majority white electorate to oppose an initiative that will directly benefit her majority Black constituents. This is not her first betrayal of her working-class constituents. During her first year on the council she voted to repeal the $13 per hour minimum wage ordinance adopted by the previous city council. While Councilmen Quinton Lucas, Jermaine Reed, and Lee Barnes stood with hard working low-income people Canady stood with Sly and the business community. The repeal passed 7-4. Had she acted in her constituents best interests and voted no the effort to repeal would have failed. Unfortunately, she seems to be the type of African-American who seeks and revels in validation from whites for their personal repudiation of Black people."

Remember that Council Lady Canady entered office with a bit of social media bragging about an upset victory and change to the local status quo but then garnered far more recognition over an embarrassing parking beef with the KCPD followed by subsequent, seemingly opportunistic, arguments for more local police oversight.

What's most interesting here is that Question 4 enjoys widespread support in the 5th District and so it's unclear how speaking out against the ballot initiative benefits Council Lady Canady politically. More to the point, in a political climate that has proven difficult for women running without a solid constituent support base . . . This move might serve to alienate the elected office neophyte as challengers are already starting to emerge for the 2019 election cycle.

She's overthinking her place in KC. That has always been her problem and it's symptomatic of many people who are new to politics.

When she asked for "consideration" from officers for not having her tags up to date, that should have been the first sign that she could be letting a small amount of power go to her head.

Taking a lesson from the Cindy Circo school of KCMO politics?

@6:52, over promising is the worst mistake that rookie politicians make and it happens way to often in Kansas City because very few people are willing to confront their elected officials about it.

The April 4th vote is all about big promises. I don't know why anybody would trust City Hall at this point.

It's out of control. KCMO has gone completely over the mental cliff.

Sly is ruining her career, too. He's taken at least four councilman down with him. Apparently she's not smart enough to avoid taking his side.

I have supported the bond issue, but if we can't afford public safety, we can't afford to pass these bonds. Vote no!!!!! Vote no on everything. Tell the mayor no more!!!! No more anything until he stops the crime. We want the police back in our neighborhoods.

The go to line from any one, black or white on the left, if you deviate from the Progressive Narrative. That Dog Whistle quote is just another way of calling a black a Racist for not toeing the line.

She is the very worst kind of council member KC has to offer. Period. Said as much since that police video turned up.

Obviously she listened to the people who found out that the sales tax would be distributed by a "committee
. She suspects that the "committee" will be a staged control for persons of power. She has chosen correctly.

She seems like an independent person- exactly what is needed. We don't need rubber stamp racial politics where people aren't encourage to think for them selves.
She was hired to to help her constituents - would we want someone to go out and borrow money to but a Mercedes when they can only afford a used Ford Fiesta?
Glad she can see we can't afford to vote yes. She sounds like she has more common sense than the Ice-Hockey team that went outside during the summer to practice... which is exactly the kind of logic the "vote yes" rubber stamp crowd has. They will only drown in their stupidity.

The tax should go down in flames. Clinton Adams, aka Tony's nuisance gossip, race-baiting tipster, needs to retire quietly. I stand with Canady on this. It's bad legislation. The thought is a noble one, but the delivery mechanism is severely flawed. I had lost faith in Canada but now I am willing to give her another shot. Clinton Adams STFU!!!

^^^Read much? She's against the measure for a special tax to improve Eastside neighborhoods.

Don't know who you've been talking to Tony but you're way off saying, "This effort has earned a surprising amount of support throughout KCMO.." Ain't true. Losing big.

Ms. Canady is a hypocrite and constructionist. Now she's asking folks to vote for it, AFTER SHE VOTED THAT THE BLACK AND BROWN COALITION NOT FUND THE 1/8TH Cents tax.
