TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY COUNCIL DUDE QUINTON LUCAS TALKS MLK NAME CHANGE ON THE PASEO!!!
As his campaign confronted immense difficulty following a sketchy DUI bust the 3rd District Councilman became much more aggressive as a proponent of the MLK name change and in this worthwhile interview he defends his actions and shares some of the responsibility with his colleagues . . .
Northeast News: Third District Councilman Quinton Lucas discusses the potential name change of Paseo Boulevard
Today, as he becomes a vocal proponent for the name change, much hostility from those against it have directed their anger at him.
“I will note, by the way, that it’s not just me. In a number of these forums I was at, almost every at-large council member, except maybe Scott Wagner, said ‘yeah we would do it too,’” Lucas commented. “This isn’t about trying to make some big change.”
For Lucas, it is about properly representing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Many in support of this change think The Paseo represents exactly what Dr. King represented: peacefulness and acceptance. The Paseo is known for having incredible ethnic diversity, and therefore, in the eyes of supporters, would be something Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud of.

IS THIS ISSUE A WINNER FOR KANSAS CITY COUNCIL DUDE QUINTON OR A SIGN OF DESPERATION AFTER HIS CLEAN CUT IMAGE HAS BEEN CHALLENGED?!?
