TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY WILL BE WITHOUT A 'FIRST LADY' ONCE AGAIN!!!
Not so long ago the KCMO Mayor's wife was expected to keep a social calendar, meet with low-rent civic groups and basically entertain the housewives of local power players.
Times have changed and "political wives" are now something of a rarity. Even Melania Trump seems bored with her job.
Given the disastrous impact of his predecessor's wife, Mayor Sly basically operated as a bachelor in KCMO for the past 8 years. He was his own better half and kept the local middle-class voters entertained to the best of his ability.
However, the the upcoming Mayoral contest there's a bit of a contradiction . . .
Groups like the LGBTQ Victory Fund and the Human Rights Campaign have garnered support (AND CASH) from across the nation for Jolie Justus in hopes that she'll become the first LGBT mayor in Kansas City history.
Among the LGBT community, Jolie Justus and her partner are front and center but the local camapign hasn't really emphasized the historic implications of their union.
Meanwhile . . .
The on again off again girlfriend of Quinton Lucas is nearly as mysterious as that DUI stop dash cam footage that has been suppressed for no good reason.
And so . . .
LIKE IT OR NOT, GLORIA SQUITIRO REMAINS THE LAST "FIRST LADY" OF KANSAS CITY GIVEN THE LOW KEY RELATIONSHIPS OF THE CURRENT MAYORAL CONTENDERS!!!
This is not a tragedy given that the former KCMO "First Lady" will soon be coming back to town to promote her book and relieve her glory days that served mostly to destroy the myth of "traditional" relationships among local politicos.
Meanwhile, the lonely business of the 2019 general election continues by way of an endless series of debates filled with seniors and homeless who don't have anything better to do than listen to candidates who are nearly identical in terms of voting record and almost every other aspect of their careers except for suit choices.
