TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! AFTER JACKSON COUNTY DOUBLE SMACKDOWN: EXEC FRANK WHITE AWASH IN GOVERNING OPPOSITION!!!
Yesterday Executive Frank White was delivered an unprecedented insult by the Jackson County Legislature, again.
The attempt to install an interim COMBAT Anti-Drug Tax director was SMACKED DOWN in another unanimous decision.
But our blog community is digging deeper and listing even more Courthouse struggles which confront the former baseball legend.
Here's a quick list and a bit of description regarding a litany of complaints which threaten to destroy the legacy of this formerly beloved newbie politico . . .
- Behind the scenes the Jackson County Exec is blowing up Rock Island Development
This is a controversial plan and the brainchild of former Exec Mike Sanders. The former politico still has a lot of friends and many locals hope to see this public transit project completed one day. TKC has always said that it's vaporware . . . However, that doesn't mean that a lot JaxCo power players are any less upset about the plans to shut down the initiative.
- The JaxCo Economic Development Team is being taken off task
They're being moved to collections and public works, a recent e-mail put on blast to everybody at the county laments the decision and touts the work of the group.
"Everyday that team has worked with municipalities including Raytown, Oak Grove, Grain Valley, Lee’s Summit, Sugar Creek, Independence, Grandview, Blue Springs, Kansas City and our other great cities to increase development and protect revenue streams to the county. Most do not know that this team generates far more revenue than it costs to sustain them . . ."
Clearly, the eco-devo crowd is taking umbrage with the Exec's behind the scenes moves that could hamper their plans.
- Constructing Futures program for homeless families KAPUT under Exec Frank White's Watch
A tough cut from Exec White's Administration has the social justice and activist crowd questioning leadership at the Courthouse as well.
and then . . .
Etc., Etc. - All of these interests lining up against the Jackson County Exec in addition to a human rights crisis at the Jail and recent property tax collections have created a perfect storm of opposition.
Accordingly . . .
FIRST ON TKC: WE'RE WITNESSING JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE DROWNING IN A STORM OF CONTROVERSY THAT RAGES AGAINST HIS INABILITY TO EFFECTIVELY GOVERNING!!!
This is important for a lot of reasons but mostly because it features a formerly beloved jock continues to ruin his legacy amid a tidal wave of longstanding Jackson County problems crashing down upon him as he remains mostly unable to weather the deluge.
