Happy Birthday To Kansas City Mayor Sly!!!



It's probably too late to get him a nice present but our blog community would be remiss if we didn't acknowledge another milestone for the king of Kansas City politics . . .

HAPPY B-DAY TO MAYOR SLY JAMES!!!

He's 67-years-old today and, obviously, very active in keeping one of the most hectic political schedules any mayor has undertaken.

This is the last b-day the City Hall honcho will celebrate in office at 12th & Oak as the top-ranking politico ponders his next move.

Be nice, but TKC is probably the only place locals will be able to leave the mayor a snarky message without fear of getting fired.

You decide . . .

Overall, we could have done much worse. For all of this giveaways, he still didn't spend as much as Kay Barnes and possibly got more accomplished. He was a necessary replacement for Mayor Funkhouser and helped calm some of the tensions that arose during his tenure.

Solid B-

I wonder what gift the greater KC chamber sent over?

11:08 you’re funny, but not even close to being true.

How many tens of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money did sLIE spend on his birthday? I’m sick of his “farewell tour” of stuff he’s done just for himself on the taxpayers dime.

Basically, F. What grade would Nero have gotten?

A ridiculous clown of a mayor, whose incompetence was almost as bad as his corruption. A puppet for developers, who concentrated on the money pit of the millennial downtown amusement park while crime exploded and infrastructure crumbled.

How many murders this year? That's Mayor Bullhorn's legacy.

Four square miles of the city improved while 200 square miles deteriorated.

Taken into FBI custody following corruption charges, Sylvester requested handcuffs made to resemble his usual bling!!!

Guy probably snacks on human flesh judging from his compassion for citizens.

The mayor doesn't have as much power in a manager form of municipal gov't

Cleaver should retire and let sly be our congressman- he would do better,get along better with a gop president, get better committee assignments with the Dem majority, get more pork and federal checks to slosh around our broke-ass city etc etc. Will cleaver never let go of his Congressional sit???? How much vanity does that guy have? Already got a Blvd-what else do we have to name after him to get him to relax his latch-on to that house seat?

I hear council woman Teresa Loar tried to give the mayor a BIG WET KISS for his birthday, but he declined.
