KANSAS CITY WEEKLY POWER RANKINGS!!!
Tonight let's take a brief pause to check this week's Kansas City winners amid a soggy week and a litany of change underway.
Kansas City, MO Fraternal Order Of Police
FOP Union leaders and officers at the street level flexed their political muscle to push their candidate to the forefront. They were successful thanks to one of the best community minded police officials in recent memory . . . Only time will tell if this success translates to better results on local streets.
MO STATE SENATOR SILVEY
This Missouri mid-level GOP dude is getting pressure to run for KANSAS CITY MAYOR from his colleagues and constituents. Behind the scenes, he says he's still considering his options as the Northland continues to desperately search for a champion.
COUNCILMAN QUINTON LUCAS
This week the 3rd District At-large Councilman declared war against KCI secrecy and local media lauded his pronouncements . . . In the meantime, the push toward a single-terminal continues with pep rallies, celebrity endorsements and sketchy no-bid financing deals.
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.
