KANSAS CITY WEEKLY POWER RANKINGS!!!
Amid a wild week in the local discourse, let's take a peek at the WINNING KANSAS CITY POWER PLAYERS who helped to move the local discussion forward.
KANSAS CITY IS FULL OF SCIENCE!!!
There were protests tonight in the Crossroads, Plaza and throughout the metro on the topic of Prez Trump's pullout of the Paris Climate Agreement.
Who knew that everybody in Kansas City was a climate scientist???
It's a fascinating revelation amid another week of outrage against a candidate that won both Missouri and Kansas by a landslide and claimed victory in 2/3 KCMO counties.
Councilman Quinton Lucas Now Leads The City Hall Political Conversation
The rest of the Council looks to him as a leader and so far he has been a voice of reason and an advocate for transparency in local government. For the most part. Nobody is perfect but our blog community admires the willingness of this elected official to interact with his constituents and the community at-large in an attempt to garner a better understanding of how government works and/or doesn't.
THANK KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTERS FOR NEW AIRPORT OPEN BIDDING!!!
If it wasn't for citizen initiative petitioners and activists using KANSAS CITY DIRECT DEMOCRACY to offer checks and balances to elected officials and their efforts . . . Than a horrible NO-BID deal would have succeeded. Instead, bidding on the new airport is now OPEN because locals like Dan Coffey and Citizens For Responsible Government KC got involved.
And so . . .
Kansas City fighting persists as we take flight into the Summer and the great, unknown future . . .
As always, 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.
