Kansas City Weekly Power Rankings



Quick round-up of the Kansas City people, places and trends this week. Take a look at our definitive list . . .

Ugly Kansas City Baby Girl Giraffe


Already a social media sensation in her first days, this pitiful looking creature might be this town's only real hero of the moment.

Council Lady Heather Hall


She recently earned an important National League Of Cities honor might be the only Councilmember to escape the airport debate without incurring a special interest vendetta for next election. 

Kansas City Country Club Plaza Comeback


Shake Shack winning following Nordstrom's announcement to leave Oak Park Mall offers a glimpse at this embattled district making a return to glory.

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.

Good choice on Hall.

I think a category for worst in KC would be more productive.

Put Quinton Lucas on the list!

YES on Hall, HEATHER FOR MAYOR!

MAYBE on Nordstrom's and Shake Shack being able to "save the Plaza", jury's still gonna have to be out on that.

PLEASE Tony - more pictures of the Giraffe and fewer of Jolie Justice, that will improve the look of this blog immensely!

Heather Hall was too afraid to vote yes on the MOU because of BUrns & Mac influence in her district. She would be a poor mayor, no courage

You want fries with that? said...

HA HA HA HA Like sure a burger shack is going to save the Plaza. Wait till they find out what shitty fast food workers we have in this area.

I'll take the Plaza over JoCo any day. People think the corruption in Johnson County isn't affecting the quality of life and our economic growth, they're wrong. the graft in Johnson County would compete with KC any day.

^^^ I got nothing. 12:53 has to be a gag.

Someone lied to these people about there not be any crime or problems on the plaza, they’ll find out soon enough and leave within a year, just wait

The Streetcar is WONDERFUL...

look, nordstrom's for the plaza is great for both parties and is a huge plus.

shake shack helps with the young people crowd.

a big boost for the plaza.

next, if i were they, i'd pay whatever it costs to have two dozen policepersons on foot from six pm through one am every thursday, friday, and saturday night and a lesser complement every day. i'm talking real police on foot, not rent-a-guard types in compact cars.

everyone in kansas city wants the plaza to succeed and have their act together.
