Who Can Clean Up Kansas City: Jolie Justus Or Quinton Lucas?!?!



The blight fight in Kansas City persists despite a great deal of broken promises from the current administration. As higher home prices push more people out of their homes, the quest for "affordable" development looms for the next honcho at city hall.

Here's the premise of a recent video on the topic . . .

"If Kansas City's Blue Valley neighborhood could rehabilitate its dilapidated housing stock, perhaps a new generation of families would help re-green the neighborhood."

This quick movie asks both of the candidates for Mayor about the blight fight . . .



You decide . . .

We don't need a janitor, we need a mayor. Who has the better record on blight? Neither of them did much about it during their time on the council.

Vote for none of thee above. Or just vote for your council person, they're the only ones who will take your calls anyway.

Actually, Jolie Justus has been very responsive to cleanup issues in Midtown. She has the better record as far as most of the 4th district is concerned.

For Mayor, this is truly a "none of the above" vote.

I see KCMO is having an election. My biggest fear is someone will win.

Come on guys do you really think either of these two clowns would be a leader? a visionary? The city manager and council have made it clear what their priorities are and where our taxes will go and either one of these lackeys will change that in the short term.The power players in the city have made it all about money and profit, not civic responsibility and the common good. Stop re-electing these career politicians into office and recycling them into other offices.

Trick question. Neither.

Neither!!!!!!! But that's O.K. because Kansas City now has a bad reputation and the 25 million tourists aren't going to come here anymore. Are wonderful Sly James, his son and UMKC and violent liberals are great at making an entire city a place of filth and violence.

A vote for either Justus or Lucas is a vote putting an idiot into office.

Lucas has my vote. Am a old white man who hates KCMO government, but likes pragmatic leadership like Lucas versus a mayor who will be paying off old Sly/Justus political debts.

"Neither." How quickly and cleverly you all submit yourselves to the margin. One of these folks is going to be our next mayor.

The old guard is desperate to use what resources it has left to extend its influence another few years. They'll spend like crazy and pretend this is Jolie's to lose.

In the real world, Lucas is the odds on favorite. A true business person might be a bigger threat to him, but he's got Jolie pinned in. Her identity politicos are always louder than they are populous, and nobody other than old insiders are voting for her. She'd do well amongst blacks if Lucas wasn't running, but now she's only left with the ultraleft.

Lucas has the stronger base AND more room to appeal to those politically right of both candidates. It's why Vegas always has and still does favor Quinton Lucas for Mayor of Kansas City.

^^^^^That and Lucas knows how to pay off the right people to avoid DUI's. Lucas sucks as bad as Justus, he thinks he is above the people and that the laws of the land don't apply to him.

Write in Clay or hell even write in Tony but don't put Lucas of Justus into office.

At least Justus is Caucasian. Look at the current shit show KC’s elected negroes have created. Lucas would just be a sequel.

I'm on Team Neither

@7:48 you're full of shit!
A fifth of Jolie Justus' Fourth District residents live north of the River, and the only time she has ever set foot up there was one of the KCI "Open House" meetings years ago!

Maybe you folks south have see her around, but she absolutely refuses to attend Neighborhood Association Meetings, or even return phone calls!

We HATE het ass in the Northland! The election results showing support up here are a complete Lie, and hopefully somebody is going to Jail for certifying them!

Meet the new Boss same as the Old Boss .The Tourists can only take so many steaks and Bar b que. The Royals are Loosing Los Vegas and New Orleans are getting the Conventions. The Next Mayor will have a Challenge. The Bright side The Missouri Economy will be Fairly Good .Much of the Country will be in a Recession .in the next few years .after the Presidential election. And the city will have an influx of Illegals .Who will pay for there care. How many of Tonyskansascity readers can find a job and they can't speak enghish.

They're both trash. Jolie is a dumb piece of shit who has no family and thus no skin in the game to want to help lead KC back into a play where families can live.

Lucas pushed the street changing thing and that rubbed myself and a lot of people the wrong way.

The only thing hold KC back is the god awful schools and they're being held back because why in god's name would any family want to live here when they can go 2 miles west across the state line and have a much higher quality of life

The two can't even keep their own lives clean, so how can they be trusted to clean up anything while in office?

The only people peeved at the name change wouldn't vote for a black guy anyway. At least TRY to be honest.

They both will, at the bank when the developers start paying off
