TKC EXCLUSIVE QUESTION!!! MO. STATE SENATOR RYAN SILVEY: KANSAS CITY NORTHLAND GREAT WHITE HOPE???
Behind the scenes, momentum for this GOP dude is building as he remains mostly on the outs with his own party and serves sort of a RINO in Jeff City.
To wit . . .
COULD MO. STATE SEN. SILVEY SERVE AS KANSAS CITY'S FIRST REAL NORTHLAND REPUBLICAN MAYOR???
There are a lot of reasons this could happen but our readers lay out a couple of important facets of the discussion.
Here's the word:
"Last week I was called for a survey about the airport. The survey was from Central Marketing. I believe it was paid for by Burns & Mac. The last question asked was who would you support for Mayor, list began with Mark Alford, Taylor, Reed, Justus, Wagner, and MO State Senator Silvey. I answered I was undecided. Although Wagner won your informal poll, most people in the Northland are disappointed or frustrated in some of Wagner's positions: Like the subsidized housing, streetcar, airport and downtown hotel. Councilman Wagner is counting on no one else running from the Northland and getting their vote by default.
State Sen. Silvey would create a whole new dynamic to the Mayors race. Sen. Silvey has shown independence from being a yes man, while Councilman Wagner is your basic KCMO establishment politician."
Another one of TKC's most KICK-ASS commenters . . .
"Burns and Mac is Sen. Ryan Silvey’s 5th largest donor, flinging $24K his way."
You decide . . .
