TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY BACKGROUND CHECKING CANDIDATES FOR MAYOR AND COUNCIL!!!
The Gipper told us "trust but verify" and so we offer this quick missive about background checking and the candidates to better inform readers as the election is mere hours away.
One of the smartest people and TKC readers we've met informs us . . .
"Do you find it interesting that people will run for public office and decline to participate in a background check?"
In fact, this link offers a great run down of the background checked candidates from verifymore.org
And so . . .
CHECK THIS QUICK OVERVIEW OF KANSAS CITY MAYORAL CANDIDATES WHO STOOD UP TO BACKGROUND CHECKING!!!
Most of the mayoral candidates passed the this online verification.
From the first through the 3rd -- Northland To Urban Core -- There's very little verification with only Rachel Riley passing this test.
Most of the candidates from the Downtown to Midtown district didn't bother seeking out any kind of verification.
The 5th District has the most interesting results because it's the most competitive political field in Kansas City:
Finally, the 6th District is completely unchecked . . .
And so . . .
With background check info scant on so many Kansas City politicos, this election relies on faith and reason but is mostly a matter of trust.
As always, thanks for reading this week and hopefully we'll have more for the morning update . . . STAY TUNED!!!
