TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! HELP SELECT THE TOP KANSAS CITY PEOPLE OF 2017!!!
Because our bloggy goodness inspires us to be more Democratic than all of the local rigged elections OR the fake news lists that dominate end of year news coverage . . . We're giving our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY a vote in supporting their favorites from this year.
Accordingly . . .
Winners in a "TKC Best Kansas City People" category earn tribute in a marquee post which will be dedicated to documenting achievement this year. A fair and open voting process by way of comments, background e-mail and advice from longtime members of our bloggy alliance will determine victory.
Accordingly, here are some choices Kansas City should consider . . .
Kansas City Politico Of The Year 2017
Councilman Quinton Lucas worked to reform the TIF process and champion urban core development whilst Council Lady Jolie Justus focused on a citizen anti-violence task force and the airport. Both of these politicos represent diverse agendas in Kansas City and it's up to you to pick a favorite.
Kansas City Journalist Of The Year 2017
Steve Vockrodt said that The Pitch was committed to serious journalism and had a bright economic future and then he almost immediately jumped ship to The Star. Now he's touting the influence and solid foundation of the newspaper in a manner that's eerily familiar to his promotion of a mostly failed alt. weekly. Meanwhile, Barbara Shelly has always been a champion of progressive causes and one of the top local liberal ladies of the written word in Kansas City
Kansas City Athlete Of The Year 2017
Fanboys said that Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith should be benched about a month ago. Now they are singing his praises and touting his greatness.
Similarly, CB Marcus Peters has proven to be one of the most important players on the KC Squad and his on-field performance has quieted many of the critics of his controversial and continued national anthem protest.
And so . . .
This is an open competition and, as always, we invite our blog community to be pithy, insightful and unafraid to cheer on their favorites people in 2017.
