TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! SAVE THE PASEO VOTE MOVES FORWARD!!! JOLIE JUSTUS FLIP FLOPS MLK BLVD NAME GAME AND NOW SUPPORTS PETITIONERS AMID KANSAS CITY RACE FOR MAYOR!!!
First things first: Jolie Justus initially voted to rename The Paseo to MLK Blvd. But today she made a bold declaration and recommended to bring the "Save The Paseo" petition before the full City Council in order to put the question to voters.
This Kansas City silly season has inspired an interesting gambit among busybody Northeast neighbors and constant campaigners. Now, given her flip-flop, many local political denizens believe Jolie Justus wins on this issue because Quinton Lucas and his sponsorship of the controversial moniker change is a more grievous sin, in the minds of many, than the initial endorsement of the process from the council lady.
The full city council is expected to vote in about two weeks to place the question on the November ballot. The will be sparks during the debate and voices will be raised as the Revs are already gearing up for a return trip to Council Chambers.
SAVE THE PASEO SUPPORTERS HAVE FOCUSED THEIR IRE AGAINST QUINTON LUCAS AND HIS CAMPAIGN FOR MAYOR!!!
Moreover . . .
SAVE THE PASEO PETITIONERS PROVE VICTORIOUS IN FLIPPING THE JOLIE JUSTUS VOTE WHICH WILL NOW PROVOKE THE WRATH OF MANY 3RD DISTRICT LEADERS & TURN THE ELECTION INTO A BLACK VS. WHITE HOT MESS!!!
Yes, of course not all Black people support the MLK name change but in the context of politics, policy and the small number of people who actually turn out to vote . . .
THE MLK BLVD VOTE IS NOW A RACIAL LINE IN THE SAND FOR SUPPORTERS OF JOLIE JUSTUS VS. QUINTON LUCAS!!!
We expect Quinton Lucas to offer an "interesting" retort that will attempt to diffuse the inherent drama of the situation but here are the facts:
- Quinton Lucas sponsored the MLK name change.
- Jolie Justus VOTED YES ON THE MLK RENAME but now she has REVERSED her position and is working to help petitioners switch the signs back to THE PASEO despite the totally laughable fact that all of the street directions were recently replaced.
- The "Save The Paseo" group have been exceptionally public in their condemnation of the process and Quinton Lucas for moving the issue forward.
Like or not, this issue is mostly black and white AND it provides yet another instance of public policy push back directed against City Hall by voters frustrated with the continual & undue influence of politicos over neighborhoods.
