TKC MONDAY MUST SEE!!! COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS MAKES HER QUICK PITCH FOR KANSAS CITY MAYOR!!!
A quickie interview is a good starting point for Monday if only because it offers us a glimpse at all manner of media playing nice with politicos instead of asking any real questions about their record.
For the uninitiated . . .
- Council Lady Jolie Justus is the prime mover for Council support for the new single-terminal airport. Thanks to our blog community she was caught in some tough ethics questions about potential conflicts and she eventually got on board the 2nd choice effort to push through a developer with a troubled past. The current delay and STALLED negotiations remain a public embarrassment for #BetterKCI as she heads the embattled and overtly political airport committee.
- She served as chair of the Mayor's task force on violence during one of the bloodiest years in Kansas City history. This town currently ranks among the top 10 in most violent cities in the nation.
- The Council lady jumped in and out of the Mayoral race and her fundraising and the perception of her strength as a candidate still hasn't recovered.
More interestingly . . .
CHECK COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS PLAYING THE TOURISM CHEERLEADER IN THIS CRINGE-Y CLIP!!!
It's a new role for the Council lady who has heretofore touted her work as a social justice advocate and continues to bill herself as a "progressive" in between pushing local restaurants and the arts.
Take a look:
