THE COWTOWN COMEBACK EDITION: KANSAS CITY WEEKLY POWER RANKINGS!!!
Tonight we pay tribute to the strongest locals in Kansas City who have confronted hard times, setbacks and tragedy but keep pushing forward.
To wit . . .
WE DEDICATE TKC GOOD FRIDAY NIGHT POWER RANKINGS TO THE MOST RESILIENT KANSAS CITY AREA LOCALS DETERMINED TO MAKE A COMEBACK!!!
Take a look:
Kansas City Hammer Time Lady
She withstood a horrific attack and cancer recurrence . . . Nevertheless, she bravely told her story and showed the world that she wasn't going to let a violent criminal get the best of her.
Independence Police Dude
Despite behind the scenes talk of friendly fire and controversy over media coverage . . . Without question, all of the Kansas City metro hopes for the recovery of an Independence Police Officer injured in the line of duty and now working toward rehab.
Kansas City Low Tax Heroes
Kansas City tax fighters lost a big election but their response isn't to back down but to REMAIN COMMITTED TO LOCAL DEMOCRACY AND FREE SPEECH DISCOURSE in the face of adversity. Rather than cash in like so many of the consultant class, these locals continue their work as the engaged, committed and well-informed denizens of our cowtown. Like it or not, there is no keeping down these neighborhood advocates who refuse to simply comply with a tax and spend agenda that continues to rack up debt at City Hall.
Accordingly . . .
As always, this list has been compiled according to scientific TKC polling and market research data and it's a weekly comprehensive guide to local powerful people.
