TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER & MANY KANSAS CITY CLERGY SKIPPING TODAY'S PUBLICITY GRAB ON THE PASEO!!! COUNCILMAN JERMAINE REED DENOUNCED BY COMMUNITY FOR CAMPAIGN STUNT ATTEMPTING TO SWIPE CREDIT FOR MLK NAME CHANGE!!!
Today's ceremony on The Paseo deserves closer scrutiny from the media and has already garnered backlash in the 3rd District . . .
Facts and TKC FIRST NEWS that media should follow-up on . . .
CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER WON'T BE ATTENDING TODAY'S MLK CEREMONY EVEN THOUGH HIS LEADERSHIP SPARKED THE NAME CHANGE!!!
Moreover . . .
MANY URBAN CORE CLERGY REJECT COUNCILMAN REED'S PUBLICITY STUNT THIS MORNING THAT'S USING THE PASEO TRANSITION FOR HIS CAMPAIGN!!!
Here's the behind the scenes word . . .
Councilman Reed is hosting a MLK sign installation ceremony today, he planned it (poorly) around Friday night and invited who he wanted, to make it look as if was in change and all of this was his accomplishment.
As of Friday morning, he announced it to an angry audience at Urban Summit, including SCLC president Vernon Howard, who knew nothing of the event.
The news is saying the Congressman will be there but Rep. Cleaver is in D.C. this morning and has had a full schedule planned for this week. In fact, Councilman Reed announced this event without directly inviting most of the people who started this movement. What's worse is that (Councilman) Reed is using Rep. Cleaver's name without checking his facts and trying to drum up attention with the media by doing so.
Councilman Reed is trying to get a press hit for the April 2nd election, for something he didn't individually pass.
There will be a real community, unity event all the pastors have been planning for on April 4th, in honor of Dr King’s assassination.
FACT IS Councilman Reed is incorrect. The Congressman WILL NOT be in attendance and most of the clergy who helped start spark this change were not made aware of the event. This is fake news devised by (Councilman) Reed for his camapign and a shameful way to use the legacy of Dr. King.
