TKC POPS THE BIG QUESTION TONIGHT: DOES MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY STILL LOVE COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS???
Her stint on the Council has been tumultuous and now she wants to be Mayor but local love & support for this high-profile politico remains in question.
For now she can claim a victory on the airport but there's no question that her leadership of the citizen task force against crime was a total political loser.
And so . . .
DOES KANSAS CITY'S 4TH DISTRICT STILL LOVE COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS???
A few items to consider . . .
- We know for a fact that Westport Biz people hold just a bit of disdain for the Council Lady after she double-crossed them on street privatization and tighter security in the party district.
- Still, her LGBT and legal community connections are strong and getting stronger among the big money corporate types who can actually power campaigns.
- While critics question her in-district legislative achievements, her supporters enthusiastically tout the progress of Downtown & The Crossroads in recent years and even if the boom inside the loop might not be directly related to anything Council Lady Jolie did.
And so, we leave the question to our blog community and the residents of the 4th District who can make or break this political career currently standing at the precipice of becoming the 1st openly gay mayor in Kansas City.
