TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! COUNCILMAN QUINTON LUCAS TALKED ABOUT CALLING IT QUITS AT CITY HALL AND NOW HE COULD BE THE NEXT KANSAS CITY MAYOR!!!



The grind at City Hall has taken its toll on virtually every politico and denizen of 12th & Oak. Few are prepared to handle the kind of soul crushing work that offers an inside look into how Democracy is mostly just a charade taught to naive youngsters and a punchline to a very bad joke.

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY INSIDERS REVEAL THAT COUNCIL DUDE QUINTON LUCAS HAS TALKED ABOUT CALLING IT QUITS DESPITE SO MANY LOCALS BEGGING HIM TO RUN FOR MAYOR!!!

Here's the word . . .

"I think it gets to him. Watching people go back on their word and the outright corruption. It's not like law school or the corporate world. The level of personal rivalry is much more intense than most people realize and (Councilman) Quinton (Lucas) is far more accustomed to a collegial atmosphere . . . And don't forget that just about every firm in KC has offered him $500K a year to start. So slugging it out over zoning issues or all of these backroom deals seems downright petty."

Nevertheless . . .

"Now the pressure is on him. There's just no denying that there's a movement to draft this guy as Kansas City's next Mayor. I think most people who have talked to him understand why. He's one of the very few Councilmen who has kept his dignity mostly intact."

A relative noob to the political process . . . Councilman Lucas has earned the respect of tax fighters by directing new airport bidding toward a lawful process rather than the sketchy deal that Mayor Sly first proposed. And while he has garnered cash for the the hopeless Jazz District . . . He has also done as good of a job as any KC politico in explaining his positions via his social media outlets.

While it's still early in the game, don't underestimate the support for Councilman Lucas who would be one of the youngest, best educated and most likable KC politicos to enter the Mayoral contest so far.

Don't blame me, I voted for the general said...

You might be giving him too much credit on the airport. All but two of the council people are letting Burns & McDonnell have way too much leeway.

The future is the Northland, the future is Wagner.

And notice I didn't say it was a great future.

None of this will matter when Trump & Kim Jong-Un blow up the planet.

It's not an airport, no need to announce your departure.

He needs to be more serious about the art of the spin.

Wouldn't it be great if someone, anyone, announced they were running in order to do something instead of the usual empty celebrity crap of being someone.
Just another one-eyed king in this valley of the blind.

Tracy for mayor she knows everything

Kansas City Missouri is so mired in dysfunction that Johnny Dare could be the next mayor and it simply wouldn't matter.

Serious question, what would it take for you to give this up?

Another law suit?

8 years of BLACK folk as Mayor is more than enough. Sly has gotten rid of all the white folk events (BBQ events, Rockfest, and so on!!!) Bring on Whitey!!!!!!!

He can actually work a real job.

He pays attention to ethics.

I like the cut of his jib!

The real problem of KC city council is you have 8 lawyers. They all are down at city hall representing their firms first. Heather Hall is the closest to what city councilperson should be. We have Justus and McManus that are worthless democrats that believe their Jefferson City experience makes them to be city councilpersons. Shields and Loar have been there and have agendas from elected positions. KC deserves who they voted for and Lucas is frustrated by the hassles of basic city functions is to bad. Look their is more to KC than downtown, streetcars. downtown hotels and the airport fiasco. KC the city that doesn't work for their citizens.

Lucas is just as corrupt as the rest. This is media spin, at best. We have had enough with the Black Mayor narrative despite his obvious White washing and compromised persona. give me a break. sheesh! this isn't conjecture. It's fact.

Perfect campaign slogan: Vote Lucas. Because it's him, or a raging dumpster fire.

Wagner for mayor

Fat Troy for mayor!
Two for the price of one!
Actually, about 2 1/2 for the price of one!
Out of 472,000 residents in KCMO, this is it?
Really?

I'll support anyone who commits to getting rid of Shulte. The biggest disaster in the history of KCMO city managers!

Don't worry Troy's gone. He's got a $500,000 gig lined up at Burns & Mac.

You need an American Indian as mayor. He could bring in the tribe to teach teh boons how to survive without a handout.

Indians receive tons of benefits from the American government. (Reparations of sorts) What r u talking about 10:52am. Plus, at least half the black population is of Indian heritage. The problem is that most cannot prove it due to the way white slave owners kept records on slaves - as property not people. So for some it's nearly impossible to trace ancestry making it nearly impossible to prove Indian bloodline.

I KNOW. I KNOW. You were just trying to show your proud, racist heritage which is mostly supported by ignorance. As you were...

What a joke, "it gets to him, people going back on their word." I am still waiting for him to follow through on his word to 1) follow up on questions I had about the KCU MPD, 2)send me a copy of the final version of the MPD before it was approved, 3) let me know when the vote was scheduled to go before the council. That is just ONE issue where he completely and utterly lied through his charming, charismatic teeth and then refused to follow through on any of his assurances. In fact, the back room dealing and last minute placement of the issue on the council agenda was done to make certain that concerned stakeholders had no forewarning whatsoever, and this was done by Cms. Reed and Lucas. Lucas is a snake. He has no integrity. This drama is for the weepy-eyed fans who will someday come to realize that Lucas cares nothing for people.

Every law firm has offered $500k is total BS. You don't hire partners with that kind of cash without a significant book of business. QL has no clients. Even at the biggest firms in town, you would need to be responsible for annual billings of $2M plus to garner that kind of a partnership participation. If you don't have it, it means other partners are subsidizing your pay and lawyers aren't exactly the generous type.
