Kansas City Selfie Day 2017 Redux!!!



In the photo at the top of this post . . . Councilman Kevin McManus shows off his pearly whites. He represents Kansas City’s 6th District - A part of town that has confronted increased property crime, late night gunfire, flooding and a spate of murders at a local park.

Other than maintaining what is objectively the best smile in Kansas City politics . . . I don't blame readers for not knowing the guy. He stands at more than 6'3 but he has been as quiet as a church mouse on the City Council despite the troubles of his district. Still, like all politicos . . . His job involves smiling a lot and that's part of the gig for which he's extremely qualified.

To wit . . . Final link of the day we wanted to share . . .

City Hall Selfie Day 2017

Don't be a hater, everybody is entitled to smile at their place of work . . . But so much selfie celebration might be why any kind of response from 311 takes about 6 months after an initial call back.

Meanwhile, developers go straight to the City Manager's office to jump in front of line ahead of the rest of the populace who isn't quite as happy.

You decide . . .

I will say that Kevin is being too overly cautious but does good at the community meetings. He has kept a regular schedule and seems very approachable. Could he do better? Of course, but for his first term at City Council. He's not bad.
