TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY NORTHLAND REVENGE!!! SCOTT WAGNER ENDORSES CONSERVATIVE KEVIN McEVOY OVER COUNCILMAN DAN FOWLER!!!
Kansas City Northland political gamesmanship ramps up as a former and unsuccessful Mayoral candidate attempts to upset the balance of power at city hall.
Special thanks to AWESOME TKC READERS on the nice side of the bridge for noticing this one . . .
MAYOR PRO TEM AND LAME DUCK CITY COUNCIL DUDE SCOTT WAGNER ENDORSES 2ND DISTRICT CONTENDER KEVIN McEVOY OVER INCUMBENT DAN FOWLER!!!
We don't blame the council dude for being a bit salty in his political actions after his mayoral contest defeat. The slap in the face to his former Northland colleague probably feels good after he was rebuffed by Forward KC in favor of biz dude Steve Miller's family money. On paper most agree that Scott Wagner is the most qualified and has the best temperament to be the next KCMO mayor but his campaign never really reached critical mass.
Meanwhile . . .
Mr. McEvoy is a "Trump-Style" Republican whereas Council Dude Dan attempts to sell himself as a nice guy but is more a member of the old school Northland political establishment i.e. he STILL has to get drinks for Bill Skaggs & Deb Hermann.
Insight from our blog community . . .
"This is payback for Dan Fowler endorsing Jolie. This won't help McEvoy at all. Almost all of District 2 is in Platte County and Jolie Justus easily won there and Dan won the primary 70/30."
Kevin McEvoy is more "gratified" by the gesture (ewwww) of support from the council dude:
"I would like to thank Councilman and Mayoral Candidate Scott Wagner for his endorsement! Scott is a committed public servant who has been unafraid to take unpopular positions in service to our City, and his trust in me to do the same in very gratifying."
And so . . .
WILL THIS CITY HALL NOD TO A NORTHLAND 'TRUMP COUNTRY' CONSERVATIVE TURN THE TIDE?!?!
You decide . . .
