IN THIS COLUMN THE KANSAS CITY STAR PROVES THEY'RE 20-30 YEARS BEHIND THE TIMES OF LOCAL POLITICS!!!
They're talking about an old school club that was nice and good for a laugh but most voters know the endorsement game is really just a bad joke.
What's worse is that Helling is asking for replacements for the group when so many upstart organizations have been operating under his nose for years. Our Revolution KC basically chased Kevin Yoder out of office. More2 is rewriting municipal policy nearly every election cycle. And even old school groups like The Jackson County Democrats have revamped and stepped up their involvement.
Meanwhile, very much like the fading dead-tree world of print media, this column from a know-it-all newsie indulges in sentimentality whilst the local political world keeps moving ahead without him . . .
The Citizens Association, which was among the preeminent political clubs in Kansas City, continues to fade from view. With primaries just eight weeks away, the club seems to be sitting out this year's mayor's race.
