SHOCK!!! JACKSON COUNTY DEMOCRATS SNUB LEGISLATOR CRYSTAL WILLIAMS IN TRIBUTE TO KANSAS CITY POLITICAL MATRIARCH DUTCH NEWMAN!!!
For the most dedicated political denizens of Kansas City, our blog community offers a glimpse of rough political life for local ladies attempting to live up to the legacy of a founder of local Democracy.
To wit . . .
THE 2017 TRUMAN GALA IS COMING UP AND THIS YEAR JACKSON COUNTY DEMOCRATS HONOR GEORGIA SANDERS WITH THE DUTCH NEWS DEMOCRATIC WOMAN OF THE HEAR PRIZE!!!
It's the biggest surprise of the Truman Gala that's coming up and a bit of a surprise considering that, in fairness, Jackson County Legislator Crystal Williams has done a great deal of work and talk in honoring the late Dutch Newman and attempting to preserve her legacy.
That's not to say that Georgia Sanders isn't deserving of the honor. She's back in the fray at the courthouse and seems to be taking a more active behind the scenes role in local politics as her hubby Mike Sanders stepped down from the County Exec job but still remains one of the top lawyers and political pundits in the metro. Additionally, Mike's new boss Indy UBER-lawyer Ken McClain takes the top Truman honor along with activist lady Beth Low Smith.
And we post all of this intrigue on Sunday afternoon because we want our blog community to consider being nice to these Democratic activists who now rank among a SUPER-MINORITY in Missouri as their party struggles to remain relevant while the debate betwixt factions of the Missouri Republicans seems to hold more importance to the immediate future of the state than this crew that struggles to RESTART their bid to win back voters amid a tidal wave of support for Prez Trump and corporate influence on statewide politics.
Fact is all of these Truman Award winning politicos struggle to fulfill to the longstanding power broker legacy of Dutch Newman (R.I.P.) who helped to shape voting in Kansas City for both better and worse.
