TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY HUMAN RELATIONS DEPT. ETHICS HOT MESS THREATENS CITY HALL!!!



The legacy of dysfunction at City Hall in KCMO persists and now we're getting FIRST WORD of a crisis in the making that threatens to explode into even greater drama . . . And, yes, it'll probably cost taxpayers even more cash.

First, a happy note . . . Just to prove that we're not bluffing and know exactly what's gong on at HRD. We'd like to celebrate the happy nuptial news of an HRD leader and a lady who was formerly (allegedly) choked with a belt inside City Hall. Really, it is nice to see people bounce back and find companionship under tense circumstances.

But I digress . . .

For those who don't know . . .

"The Human Relations Department's mission is to ensure that all City residents are free to exercise their economic, social and human rights. This mission is achieved by providing quality service, compliance and enforcement in the areas of affirmative action , civil rights , contract compliance , construction workforce , minority, women or disadvantaged business enterprises , small local business enterprise , and Section 3 ."

In the aftermath of the Civil Rights Era, KCMO relied on this Dept. to transition into the future and create a more vibrant and inclusive local economy . . . For many years, the Dept. did just that . . . Now, it has been severely scaled back and become the source of increasing petty personal politics.



We've got more on this but let's cover the highlights for this morning to keep 12th & Oak denizens up to date at the start of the day.

- HRD has been hit with a litany of ethics and employment complaints. The leadership of the Dept. has always been questioned but now workers are putting their grievances in writing.

- Did you know there's an "ethics line" in Kansas City??? Kidding. It's not regularly monitored and is routinely used to double-cross whistle-blowers.

- Finally, rampant nepotism and cronyism has always been a part of City Government but many insiders feel HRD is increasingly becoming nothing more than job pool for friends and family of a City Hall clique.



And so, there are more than a few KCMO Insiders CALLING FOR THE ELIMINATION OF HRD and a move forward beyond Civil Rights era politics . . . Sadly, the personal squabbles are fueling this outcry beyond mere racial or partisan rhetoric. Translation: A lot of African-American residents have come to realize that HRD is no longer effective or even necessary in many instances.

And so, as usual, personal drama threatens Kansas City local government as good intentions seem increasingly corrupted.

bid rigging.

At the center of it all is bid rigging and that's what's going to land KCMO in a lot of hot water.

What you should also cover is that they don't do their job. W/mbe goals are always falling behind and many projects don't receive any real inspection at all. Why had this department if they don't want to do the work?

Lots of people work very hard at KCMO City Hall. But a few of them give everyone else a bad reputation. Look to the City Manager's office to see a great example.

Everyone knows about Ethics Line Road. City officials cross it daily.

Is this why Kansas City is falling into disrepair, losing business, and is one of the highest cities for violent crime??

Right, Kansas City is a huge example of a dysfunctional and failing democratically run city!

ALL of City Hall is dysfunctional and NOT doing their job!

Tony-

Out here in the real world, nobody gives two shits about the corruption in KCMO politics. We learned long ago that anything touched by leftists/boons is going to be a fucked up mess. Just keep posting the lingerie models and please, no more lardasses.

Absolute Corrupt City say please vote in November for a single terminal. Now we will show you a picture of the future terminal but absofuckinglutely nothing will mandate us to build the picture we show. And we will pull a cost out of our ass that again will be twice to three times the amount when it is built. All of our cronies will rake thousands into the pockets behind the scenes and you citizen will pay higher fees to use the new airport.

Saddest of all is that the sheeple in KC will approve it not having a fucking clue what they are really approving.

HRD director is corrupt and has always been a City Manager tool. He has a long legacy of nepotism in the department beginning from the first year when he brought his girlfriend with no college degree, from Texas and personally selected her for a position (contract) in his department. Then allowed her flex time to attend school while paying her well above her qualifications. His sordid story was so bad, as the employee was one of his "babies" mamas. He was arrested for child abuse by KCPD and placed on administrative leave. Now there seems to be more baby mammas out there for the HRD director. Make no mistake...this guy serves himself, and is has always been a willing tool of political corruptions in city hall. He along with the other corruption operatives need to swept out along with the mayor and the entire City manager top staff division

the City manager is aware and condones of all of the corruption of the HRD director, because he is willing to be a corrupt team player, like the rest of the corrupt team players in KC city hall

All this same stuff goes on in The Human Resouces dept. as well as the other depts.. What can one do? Work for the city and not put up and whistle blow? That's what every employee SHOULD do. Stop the ridiculus and foolishness! NOW!¡ "Drain the swamp".
