TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY FREEDOM, INC. AND QUINTON LUCAS EARN EPIC $50K+ CASH LOVE FROM POWER PLAYER JOCO LAWYER MICHAEL KETCHMARK!!!
Tonight our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY shares even more journalism on the money games amid the Kansas City contest for mayor.
Brief insight . . .
Whilst about equal in population we notice that money always flows from JoCo to KCMO in terms of politics and rarely the other way around. This is part of the reason why we focus on 12th & Oak given that urban core policies resonate across the metro more than any other local municipality.
But I digress . . .
Here's what's important . . .
FREEDOM, INC. FAVORS QUINTON LUCAS AND THEIR EFFORT TO TURN OUT AN EPIC NUMBER OF INNER-CITY VOTES HAS NOW BEEN BOOSTED WITH AN EPIC CHECK!!!
Check the evidence from Missouri Ethics website because we're talking about one of the most prominent lawyers in town and we want to make sure we're on point:
Who is Michael Ketchmark???
According to his website:
"Michael Ketchmark has been practicing law since 1990. Mike has won numerous awards and recognitions as one of the top plaintiffs' attorney in the Kansas City area including "Best of the Bar" by the Kansas City Business Journal, one of Kansas City "Best Lawyers" by 435 Magazine, and repeatedly selected as one of one elite group of "Super Lawyers" by Thomson Reuters publication."
More importantly, he's friends with just about every politico player in town . . . From Team Jeff Roe at Axiom to the upstart crew at Parson + Associates -- All the major consultants know his name. He has donated big bucks before but . . .
THIS IS THE MOST EPIC CHECK ANYBODY HAS SEEN THE DUDE WRITE!!!
The swanky donation kinda marks his debut as a local political power player beyond the scope of mere Leawood legal eagles struggling to make their Lexus payments.
Of course, we are sure Mr. Ketchmark's heart is pure and he supports the agenda of this historic political action committee overall but more than anybody this late in the game cash infusion will help the Freedom, Inc. endorsed candidate and urban core law dude who has run a campaign geared toward lower-income concerns like affordable housing and inner-city neighborhood renewal.
Moreover, we notice lackluster fundraising as of late for mayoral hopeful Quinton Lucas on his own reports but this boost by proxy comes at a time when polls say he's leading but it's clear this contest will be close and every vote counts: Nearly as much as more than 50 grand+ boost from a high-powered lawyer.
And so . . .
Whilst a series of boring debates offer the illusion that any single voter has influence over the process . . . The TKC blog community offers PROOF that Johnson County leaders are flexing their political muscles on the East Side and will clearly have a great deal of influence over the outcome of the KCMO election.
