AS OF THIS WRITING THE "SAVE THE PASEO" PETITIONERS DO NOT HAVE A SINGLE AFRICAN-AMERICAN SUPPORTER AMONG THEIR GROUP!!!
To be fair, these signature gatherers did get early support from Council Lady Canady and the use of her office BUT the core group remains mostly white and one Asian dude that they trot out but who might have lost interest.
TKC doesn't care one way or another but behind the scenes scrutiny of this group is increasing as they make impressive progress toward accomplishing their goal.
Save The Paseo is fighting Kansas City's decision to change the name of The Paseo to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.The group is circulating a petition to put the name change up for a vote.
