TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! DONATIONS TO KANSAS CITY MAYOR'S CHRISTMAS TREE FUND DISAPPOINT!!!
This Christmas we witness the love for Mayor Sly James fading a bit if his ability to fund a good cause is any indication.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY INSIDERS LAMENT LOWER DONATIONS AND PARTICIPATION IN THE MAYOR'S CHRISTMAS TREE FUND!!!
Word sent our way that seems appropriate given the blessings that we should all be grateful for right now . . .
"The Mayor's Christmas Tree Fund was pathetic in 2017. There was very little support for our activities and it just seemed that nobody had the time for it in the middle of the election and so much airport nonsense underway. The most needy in Kansas City lost out and one of KC's greatest tradition has been virtually forgotten. This is a shame really because the program used to be much bigger and serve people all over the metro. This time around, we've seen the worst level of support since the Funkhouser era."
To be fair, nobody expects Mayor Sly to make time for charity work when he's trying to run damage control on a billion dollar airport deal that is crashing and burning.
While locals constantly tout Kansas City generosity . . . This time around, amid what we hear were disappointing sales for Mayor Sly's Charlie Hustle t-shirt, there's not a lot of love from locals for the less fortunate on display this Christmas.
You decide . . .
