TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! INSIDERS: QUINTON LUCAS CAN'T WIN KCMO CORRIDOR!!!
For those out of the loop, "The Corridor" in Kansas City is the so-called "gold coast" when it comes to voters and political donations in this town.
Most of the questions in KCMO are decided here and per capita the corridor STILL has more money, influence and power than any section of Kansas City.
Accordingly . . .
INSIDERS REVEAL THAT THE CORRIDOR REJECTS QUINTON LUCAS AND LEANS TOWARD JOLIE JUSTUS!!!
Fair play as we penned our Sunday masterpiece on the most active Northland voters rejecting Jolie Justus.
First just a bit of explanation . . .
Many experts among our blog community believe that this vote will mimic Prez Obama trouncing Hillary Clinton and then offering her some cash and a hug along with a chance at his leftovers.
That's a comforting thought but the past is prologue and not destiny.
Yesterday a great many big money denizens gathered inside a Ward Parkway mansion to raise more than $75K for Jolie Justus in less than a half an hour but what they didn't realize is that a KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTER was also in the room.
Here's what we learned . . .
- The Kansas City "Pink Mafia" is already playing dirty. Team Jolie is talking so much trash behind the scenes and they're painting Quinton Lucas as Kansas City's first socialist Mayor. Again, fair play their argument is convincing and Kansas City old money doesn't want their mayor playing politics with their profits.
- In Midtown progressives favor the "transformative" vote for Jolie Justus that would grant Kansas City the openly first LGBT Mayor is our history. Never mind the suspicions that we've all had about the fashion choices of James A. Reed and what they really implied.
- Quinton's affordable housing strategy backfired among the new gentry. New locals building up the corridor and hyped-up about gentrification opportunities pushing po'folk out see the politics of Mr. Lucas as a threat. Whilst the advocating for equal housing and renter's rights might seem progressive . . . Let's not forget about that people ALWAYS vote with their wallet.
Still, losing the corridor isn't the end of the world as all of those recycled Phil Glynn & Steve Miller camapign signs reveal. The voter rich part of town never really loved former Mayor Cleaver and progressive leaders in this part of town were stumped by the short and turbulent tenure of Mayor Funkhouser.
Still . . . Campaign tactics, signs and more trickery await this seemingly polite contest that's quickly growing more contentious by the day.
