Missouri Guv Dumps Inexperienced Police Board Appointees On Kansas City

The latest gift from the politico who is more pitchman than legislator. Take a look:

Gov. Eric Greitens fills two seats on KC police board

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens has appointed a corporate executive and a minister to the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners. Don Wagner and Bishop Mark C. Tolbert will replace Angela Wasson-Hunt and Michael Rader, whose terms have expired. Greitens announced the appointments on Friday. Nathan Garrett replaced Alvin Brooks on the police board earlier this summer.

Our city’s police department has a 225-250 million dollar budget and these two guys are helping make decisions? Neither have ever had any law enforcement experience. Either have EVER had any training or knowledge what this city needs. One is filthy rich and buys his appointments and the other has never led anything but a small church. This is the best that the absentee governor could come up with? Our city is under seize from the criminals and we have no say how we are policed.

I believed the governor when he promised he would help Kansas City, but this is just more of the same. Bring on local control, this is ridiculous.

We have local control. These two are just rubber stamps for Sly James.

Why are black people on this board? Aren’t most of the murders in KC committed by black people?

Mark Tolbert is not qualified for the BOPC. What a farce!

Given recent experiences from the experienced I'd say the gov. would have to be working at it to find anything that would make the KC police board any worse.

No one on the board, past or present, has had any law enforcement experience. Most have been lawyers or bankers or high profile community members/activists. So these two fit right in.
