LAST KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY 'STATE OF CITY' TALK TODAY: WHAT WILL HE SAY?!?
The lame duck Mayor is wildly unpopular as he leaves office and on the brink of finishing his term backing a loser Pre-K sales tax.
He was never beloved but after delivering one tax increase after the next to The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce & The Civic Council . . . He earned respect among elites for his ability to play spokes-model. Sadly, now that his credibility is used up . . . His former big money friends don't have a lot of use for him by way of public office representation . . .
But more importantly . . . We ask our blog community . . .
PREDICT MAYOR SLY'S PARTING WORDS FOR KANSAS CITY!!!
Context . . .
- The water is brown but City Hall says we should still drink it down. Slowly.
- Murders continue to trend upward and KCMO ranks as the #5 most dangerous town in the nation.
- Streets are filled with potholes and only Ward Parkway is getting things fixed.
And so, here's the invite and a preview of the swan song of this social media politico.
