TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! ODD COUPLE!!! CONSERVATIVE NORTHLAND COUNCIL LADY HEATHER HALL SUPPORTS JOLIE JUSTUS FOR KANSAS CITY MAYOR!!!
Right now we have FIRST NEWS of a notable coalition that not only crosses political & social boundaries but also signals a broad coalition. Or, respectfully, maybe just a coalition among broads.
To wit . . .
CONSERVATIVE COUNCIL LADY HEATHER HALL LENDS HER SUPPORT TO JOLIE JUSTUS AS THE NORTHLAND VOTE NOW HAS THE CHANCE TO DECIDE THE KANSAS CITY CONTEST FOR MAYOR!!!
Sure they're been friendly on the Council but the two couldn't be more different.
Council Lady Heather Hall is a cop wife, former homemaker and has been more of consensus builder on the Council focusing on neighborhood issues like trash pickup and police.
Meanwhile, Jolie Justus has championed social issues and stands to make history as the first LGBT mayor of Kansas City IF she is elected.
And so, here's the odd couple paring as the Kansas City silly season builds to a crescendo . . .
Councilwoman Heather Hall Endorses Jolie Justus for Mayor
Justus continues to build support across the city
Kansas City, MO -Today, First District Councilwoman Heather Hall announced her endorsement of Jolie Justus for mayor. Councilwomen Hall and Justus have served on the city council together for the last four years and Hall has been impressed by Justus’ willingness to build coalitions and show consistency in her thoughts and actions. Councilwoman Hall is now the 5th member of the current city council to have endorsed Justus for mayor, including Mayor Sly James and Councilman Jermaine Reed, Councilman Kevin McManus, and Councilman Dan Fowler.
“I have decided to support Jolie Justus for Mayor not because our politics align, but because I believe in any organization, whether government, business, or in a family, consistency is necessary to thrive,” said Councilwoman Hall. “She has proven in the 4 years to be consistent in thought and vote and that’s why she has my support to be the next mayor of Kansas City.”
“Although Councilwoman Hall is much more conservative than me, we both share the belief that Kansas City needs effective, consistent leadership - regardless of ideology. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Councilwoman Hall because she comes to the council with fresh ideas and a willingness to roll up her sleeves and get the job done. I look forward to working with her on the next city council,” said Councilwoman Justus. “In the end, leadership means taking into account the various needs and desires from across the city and finding solutions to our biggest problems, even when those solutions may not be popular. I have a record of doing that as an attorney, state senator, and as a city councilwoman. ”
