TKC FACT CHECK: SOCIAL JUSTICE PROTEST AGAINST POLICE SPARKED HISTORIC KANSAS CITY, KANSAS UPSET VICTORY AGAINST INCUMBENT MARK HOLLAND!!!
Of course a spat with firefighters didn't help his cause and overall Mayor Holland was an incompetent and abrasive leader in KCK.
However, let's not forget the first significant opposition against him after this statement:
(Former) Mayor Mark Holland: "Captain Melton's death tells us that tragedy and evil are always possible in this line of work. It reopens a raw hurt still festering within our community. Further, in the two months between our officers’ deaths, our nation has erupted with violence. We have seen the loss of innocent lives at the hands of police; and we have seen the ambush and murder of police who were actively protecting the public. Our nation is in uncertain times."
Like it or not . . .
CRITICISM AGAINST POLICE IN THE AFTERMATH OF DEADLY KCK SHOOTINGS TARGETING LAW ENFORCEMENT WAS REALLY MAYOR HOLLAND'S UNDOING!!!
A 1st term incumbent hasn't been defeated in KCK in more than 30 years.
And while underdog David Alvey and his upstart campaign run by TJP Strategies deserves credit for his feisty campaign . . . KCKPD and KCKFD should also earn more than a bit of an acknowledgement for the win in this close contest.
You decide . . .
