TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! AFTER JACKSON COUNTY DOUBLE SMACKDOWN: EXEC FRANK WHITE AWASH IN GOVERNING OPPOSITION!!!



Yesterday Executive Frank White was delivered an unprecedented insult by the Jackson County Legislature, again.

The attempt to install an interim COMBAT Anti-Drug Tax director was SMACKED DOWN in another unanimous decision.

But our blog community is digging deeper and listing even more Courthouse struggles which confront the former baseball legend.

Here's a quick list and a bit of description regarding  a litany of complaints which threaten to destroy the legacy of this formerly beloved newbie politico . . .

- Behind the scenes the Jackson County Exec is blowing up Rock Island Development



This is a controversial plan and the brainchild of former Exec Mike Sanders. The former politico still has a lot of friends and many locals hope to see this public transit project completed one day. TKC has always said that it's vaporware . . . However, that doesn't mean that a lot JaxCo power players are any less upset about the plans to shut down the initiative.

- The JaxCo Economic Development Team is being taken off task



They're being moved to collections and public works, a recent e-mail put on blast to everybody at the county laments the decision and touts the work of the group.

"Everyday that team has worked with municipalities including Raytown, Oak Grove, Grain Valley, Lee’s Summit, Sugar Creek, Independence, Grandview, Blue Springs, Kansas City and our other great cities to increase development and protect revenue streams to the county. Most do not know that this team generates far more revenue than it costs to sustain them . . ."

Clearly, the eco-devo crowd is taking umbrage with the Exec's behind the scenes moves that could hamper their plans.

- Constructing Futures program for homeless families KAPUT under Exec Frank White's Watch



A tough cut from Exec White's Administration has the social justice and activist crowd questioning leadership at the Courthouse as well.

and then . . .

Etc., Etc. - All of these interests lining up against the Jackson County Exec in addition to a human rights crisis at the Jail and recent property tax collections have created a perfect storm of opposition.

Accordingly . . .

FIRST ON TKC: WE'RE WITNESSING JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE DROWNING IN A STORM OF CONTROVERSY THAT RAGES AGAINST HIS INABILITY TO EFFECTIVELY GOVERNING!!!

This is important for a lot of reasons but mostly because it features a formerly beloved jock continues to ruin his legacy amid a tidal wave of longstanding Jackson County problems crashing down upon him as he remains mostly unable to weather the deluge.

Frank doesn't know what he's doing. Period.

While I agree that the county has always had problems, White is making them much worse. The jail is the best example of this.

Give credit where it's due TKC. Sly had this same kind of opposition on this council but he has managed to side step most of it. Sly is a much more skilled politician and Frank is acting like his baseball fame trumps everything.

That is NOT the case.

There hasn't been a serious competent government in Jackson County in many many years.
Only the names change.

For fuck's sake Frank. The county spent about $50 mill acquiring that Rock Island line and now you don't want to put in the effort to develop it? It might have been Sanders' idea, but you signed off buying it. You own it if it fails.

What was the problem with Constructing Futures? Was it just too much work for you?

You should have stuck to baseball. Save face and don't run again. Or just resign now.

The big problem is Caleb Clifford Frank's chief of staff. The bigger problem is Frank doesn't have clue one what he's doing. If he did, he wouldn't have hired Clifford. They both need to go.

^^^ +1 - Shouldn't it be Caleb job to work with the legislature? That's most of what people are complaining about. That Frank keeps everything a secret. No Transparency with his colleagues,

@ 10:22 But doesn't the county have a great public relations staff, something like eight or nine people, to keep everyone informed and everything transparent? (Sarcasm)

It be bad folks. I have to admit Frank 20 feet under water. But hey, remember we got the cream of the crop in the election. You could of had that statesman and bastion of honest governance Sherwood Smif.

When you look at the alternative Frank stands 20 feet tall.

Putting things in perspective helps the medicine go down.
