TKC WEEKLY POWER RANKINGS!!!
Today Prez Trump celebrates an immigration and trade war deal that might or might not stop the so-called crisis at the border but certainly gets his panicky Republican friends off his back.
In an equally complex but maybe not as important local political landscape, we pay tribute to the strongest movers & shakers in town this week.
Take a look:
Sheriff Forté Fends Off Jackson County Courthouse #MeToo Scandal
Give this man credit where it's due . . . The Sheriff stood firmly against dozens of female lawyers angry about bra problems. Sheriff Forté was steadfast in his consideration of security concerns whilst the local media wanted to hype the story as a local culture war issue where none existed.
Kansas City Petitioners Proudly Push Forward With Ballot Question
The Paseo has a proud history that's forgotten by most local residents. After weeks of collecting signatures, Northeast activists earned a milestone and start what should be an "interesting" campaign for public referendum on MLK Blvd.
Council Hopeful Campaigns Creatively
More than any other candidate, Stacey Johnson-Cosby is effectively using social media and thinking outside of the box by sharing ICONIC POLITICAL COMIX that will power this discourse in her part of town for years after this election cycle is complete.
And so . . .
This list has been compiled according to scientific TKC polling and market research data and it's a weekly comprehensive guide to local powerful people, trends and our times.
