FRIDAY FACE-OFF: JACKSON COUNTY LEGISLATURE OVERRIDES EXECUTIVE FRANK WHITE'S BUDGET AND FIRES CHIEF OF STAFF CALEB CLIFFORD!!!
Power move from the Courthouse this afternoon breaks a legislative impasse and features politicos lashing out at behind the scenes players.
KMBC: "The Jackson County Legislature has passes an amended $314 million budget, calling County Executive Frank White’s budget “structurally unsound.” In addition, the Jackson County Legislature abolished Jackson County Chief of Staff Caleb Clifford’s position."
So, it's not really a firing but a bold budget move on a big salary that should make the Exec's life miserable over the holidays.
Our blog community has profiled the tension betwixt the Legislature and Frank's right hand man for some time and recently the Pitch had a hard time defending him.

EPIC PUSH BACK FROM THE LEGISLATURE DOOMS JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE TO AN ELECTION CHALLENGE WHERE HIS ABILITY TO GOVERN IS NOW IN QUESTION!!!
