Kansas City Weekly Power Rankings Tonight



We're out of the Winter doldrums as the Kansas City discourse heats up and quite a few intense debates lie ahead. For now, here's a look at the top local power players who influenced the conversation this week . . .

Kansas City Council Lady Teresa Loar Supports The Troops As Board Chair Of The Veterans Community Project


This week more than a dozen homeless Vets now have a place to stay thanks to an innovative new housing effort. A lot of people don't know this but 2nd District Council member Teresa Loar is the Board President of the Veterans Community Project and has worked tirelessly to help he group achieve their mission. There are plans for more Vet housing on the way but this week the Council Lady deserves respect and support for her efforts in the community.

Social Justice Warriors Stay Winning As "Ban The Box" Ordinance Approved


Kansas City passed "Ban The Box" legislation mostly because of testimony from More Squared. Like it or not, the group is at the forefront of community activism and progressive local policy. This latest success is just one of many items on their 2018 agenda.

Kansas City Mayoral Candidate Phil Glynn Garners Grassroots Support


This contender claims that his efforts have widespread support among local plebs and there's no doubt that he's making an aggressive play among urban core denizens to push his upstart campaign ahead of a great many elected-officials who also have their eyes on the top office at City Hall.

And so . . .



This list has been compiled according to scientific TKC polling and market research data and it's a weekly comprehensive guide to local powerful people.

Alex Smith deserves a mention because instead of leaving town on a sour note, fans expressed their admiration by donating to his charity. Definitely a class act and one of the best quarterbacks KC has ever seen.

Thanks Alex!

You've got a point. But I woulda been happier if he would have given us a Super Bowl. Then he could work on his charity during his retirement.

Not Kansas City, MO but Yoder DOUBLING all democrat challengers put together has to be one of the strongest moves this week. Tk blogged about it earlier but it deserves mention as one of the biggest political smackdowns so far this year. The Dems aren't going to win the midterms like they've been saying. Yoder is doing his part to destroy that argument.

Teresa is doing a wonderful job! I wish I lived in her district. I didn't know that she was this involved in the tiny houses but that's just another reason that I like her. She has been much more responsive and helpful than the rather disappointing council women in my district to be sure!

Tiny houses my ass. Give me that money and watch what can be built. Red tape graft and bullshit.

Tiny house neighborhoods should be built all over the place for young on their way up and retirees downsizing.
