JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE FIREWORKS CANCELLATION REALLY JUST A SLAP IN THE FACE FROM LEGISLATURE!!!



News of the Jackson County Fireworks cancellation have bigger implications than just bottle rockets.

We talked about it yesterday but it's worth a quick revisit . . .



Here's more insight . . .

"(Exec) Frank White having to cancel this thing shows everyone that he can't get along, work with or compromise with the legislature. There are always budget concerns and more effective expenditures but the fact is that this event was successful according to most people at the County. To cancel it in this abrupt manner shows that there's a lot going wrong with this Administration and Frank White didn't have the ability to steer away from a public relations embarrassment. The budget, the jail lawsuits and more fees for one consultant after the next have conspired against the executive and this time it's the taxpayers who have been disappointed."

Furthermore, let's remember that this event is the 2nd biggest County endeavor . . . If a busted budget forced this move, the money crunch could already threaten Jackson County Christmas in the Park given that the jail crisis doesn't look like it's getting any better.

Can't help but notice that Frank seems out of his league here.

He was popular as a ball player and did a good job at it but that doesn't translate into the ability to lead in local government. Frank just doesn't seem to want to do the work and delegating at the county is always a recipe for disaster.

Somebody mentioned this earlier.

They knew about the cancellation earlier. If that's the case, they should have announced it earlier. The timing of this move is absolutely horrible. Looks bad for Frank.

The county has known about this for months, that it wouldn't be holding thus event. Bullshit that their trying to make this look last minute.

Frank whining that the "budget made him do it" is just spin. The money for this event came out of the parks entertainment budget, that cant BY LAW be used for anything but events in the parks. Plain and simple, White didn't like the event. Too many "suburbanites" he has told. Next target: Independence's Santa=Cali-Gon festival. Too many "suburbanites" once again. Now, using county money to bus urban kids out to the suburbs? Frank was all over that. couldn't roll out a longer red carpet. I'm not for or against any of the above personally, just pointing out that Frank White, at his core, really does not like white people. That's why his former Royal's teammates don't like him.

Frank White is an incompetent buffoon.. He needs to step down to preserve whatever is left of his reputation. the longer he does this job, the lower it will go.

^^^ 8:53 The parks budget got cut to keep Frank's PR team together. You know the PR team that blew this announcement about canceling a event that was canceled months ago.

I don't know if Frank hates white people, but he certainly loves anyone who kisses his ass. You want to get ahead in his administration just keep puckering up.

Man, no free fireworks for me then. We used to travel over there from our poor rural county with nothing more than amateur displays.

I went to Barstow with his kid that got the graft job. My impression of him was that he despised white people and stuck his nose up in the air like he was something other than a baseball player.

So why lie about something this piddly shit, making this look last second when they have known for months about there being no county fireworks? If Frank's staff distorts the truth about little crap like this, what big lies are they telling?

THE BIGGEST LIE IS THAT FRANK WHITE IS SOMEHOW QUALIFIED TO BE RUNNING COUNTY GOVERNMENT.

Poor Frank is simply not up to the task. Too bad the Glass family couldn't keep him on the payroll and out of politics. JaCo would be better off if he was still a hand-shaker for the Royals.

Frank White sold his soul when he allowed his son to become a hostage at the scab KCATA. Frank before was always pro worker, but now that his son is on the pad, he is looking the other way while the KCATA treats its employees like dogs.

wish people would ask the real workers about this event. They make people work this event because no one likes it or likes doing it. They like to have the holiday off with their families like anyone else would. so please give it a rest with all this crap and give it a rest.

5:32 goy no problem with county not holding this event. I never thought it was necessary and I know the county didn't compensate all the employees the way they were legally required to. My problem is this BS about this event being cancelled when it was decided back in the winter not to hold it. Why act like it was all set to go and they are just like now pulling the plug?

6:57 To answer your question, so Frank can blame the county legislature and not take the heat for deciding not to continue holding this event. Personally I think if we got along just fine without it before what's the big deal about not having it now. County ought to be getting it's shit together instead of hosting a big party.
