TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY PROGRESSIVES WORK TO BUILD NEW COUNCIL COALITION!!!
Our Revolution Kansas City is progressive alliance of local activists who have build a solid reputation of local activism over recent years.
Basically, they're Kansas City "Bernie Bros & Broads" who want to make a change in municipal politics as well.
The group shouldn't be dismissed given that they were instrumental in pushing Kansas Rep. Sharice Davids to victory and powering Missouri State Rep. Greg Razer as well.
This June, they have outlined their council favorites.
Eric Bunch in the 4th District & Brandon Ellington in the 3rd At-Large are their picks to push progressive values in Kansas City.
Eric Bunch is the leader of BikeWalk KC movement and a cycling/pedestrian advocate.
Brandon Ellington has far more legislative experience but is widely known among metro political denizens (read: among white suburban voters) as a Bernie Sanders supporter. He also made a name for himself on the national scene with a presence in Ferguson, Missouri attempting to mediate the crisis.
This progressive coalition deserves a bit of attention for a lot of reasons but mainly because it marks a very real effort of the left wing of the Democratic Party to position themselves on the Council.
