Not everybody can afford property in Kansas City but the of Mayor brings a decent $100K+ salary so MAYBE it's time for this local power player to FINALLY make a commitment.
A KICK-ASS TKC READER offers this question:
"Quinton Lucas, the Mayor-Elect, also owns no personal real estate in KCMO. Isn't that a bit odd?
"Not only that, but Quinton Lucas has been renting a unit in a City-owned apartment building which pays no personal property taxes. Is that leading by example? Once he assumes the Mayor's duties do you think he'll move into a privately owned property? And what about that lecturer's position at the KU Law School? He's going to resign that position isn't he?
"Inquiring minds want to know."
Accordingly, here's the latest celebration of the politico and his promises . . .
Meeting The New Boss
In the end, Tuesday night's race for Kansas City Mayor between councilmembers Quinton Lucas and Jolie Justus wasn't that close.
Are You REALLY On Team Q???

KCTV5 News sat down with him on Wednesday, where Lucas said the first thing on his agenda is to hire a staff before he takes office in August.
The Agenda For Now
The day after Quinton Lucas defeated his fellow Kansas City Council member, Jolie Justus, in the city's mayoral election, Lucas said he had a roadmap for what he would consider a successful tenure. His three criteria are based on his major campaign issues of crime, infrastructure and housing.
