Kansas City Critics Object To Wickham James



More than a few people we know and respect have reacted negatively to former Mayor Sly's new gig.

Here's some of the best reaction to WickhamJames.com

"The former mayor's new consulting gig includes quote that #KC is safer as a result of his administration?"

“Bloomberg Associates could not have asked for better partners in Mayor Sly James and Joni Wickham. Kansas City, Missouri, Is safer, greener, more inclusive, more innovative and efficient thanks to their bold leadership. Their authenticity and commitment to solving complex challenges and delivering results made it a pleasure for us to work together and help deliver on their ambitious goals for the City.”

What about a spike in homicides making us the fifth most dangerous city in US is safer?!?!

And then . . .

More presser promo . . .

"We use our decades of experience to partner with our clients and achieve results by communicating complex issues, advancing cutting edge public policy, mediating even the most challenging disputes, and by navigating political environments and government institutions."

Informed reaction from a local INSIDER:

"I took that quote from WickhamJames.com under their services offered section. Sounds like lobbying to me. Talk about being an ethics hypocrite. At least in Jeff City they require legislators to wait two years before lobbying. "

In KCMO the lobbying grace period rule is one year . . . So the first 12 months of biz might be tough for this duo.

You decide . . .

He wants to be a hired gun for his cronies that made millions during his time as mayor, his lobbying should be deemed illegal by mayor Lucas matter of fact, sLIE should not evar be allowed to make deals for anybody if it’s city related, period.

He should be run out of Town - oh, wait, he never lived here.

A perfect example of what passed for "ethics" during the Sly administration.
Not only pushing the revolving door trying to cash in on his "service to the public", but not even A SINGLE MONTH after leaving office.
Given his track record, it appears the firm's expertise will include:
How to ignore the most basic responsibilities of elected office,like public safety.
Making believe you're going to have an impact on education,even though you have nothing to do with the organizations that are involved.
Having secret meetings at exclusive private clubs to offer insiders no-bid contracts on billion dollar contracts.
Throwing away millions of tax dollars on amusements, hype, arts festivals, and silly "transportation options".
Using your public office for personal benefit and all at public expense.
Any client list of this "company" would be interesting to study.
And then go back during Sly's tenure and see how much they got from the taxpayers.
Blatant conflict of interest and pay-to-play.
No surprises here.

Democrats can say, literally ANYTHING and get a pass.

The media is a light year beyond corrupt, from soup to fuckin nuts, locally and nationally, the media is the most nefarious, corrupt, evil force Americans have EVAR faced.

I love how S'lie changes the narrative. This city ain't safer. In fact it's even more dangerous now than ever. Not sure how he lands on this being a safer city when there have been steady declines in the number of police officers on the streets for years, including his 8 years in power.

I'd laugh hysterically if it weren't so sad. He's delusional

Consulting out of state developers how to loot and plummet the locals could be a very lucrative business.

Word is out that our brown & black folks were being sold out to the developer's by their own kind. Their organizations would have made a couple of millions by getting rid of the 3rd district residents and the west side. You know who they are.

Yes chuck, we get it. Media corrupt, Dems bad, deep state ruining the country, progressives want us dead. The Right is the only shinning beacon of truth in the world. Blah blah blah.

The free press in the USA is the most evil force the US has ever faced? Not Nazi Germany? Not the Japanese Empire? Not the Soviet Union? Jesus, "Chuck", you are one unhinged fucking idiot.

@10:43 and @11:24, if you're going to constantly post congratulations to yourself for your feeble little attempts to troll, at least have enough brains to create new "cut-and-paste" catchphrases, you've become blatantly obvious. Fool!

There, I’ve posted everything you ever have to say,
now go somewhere else and play with yourself,

12:01 I will admit to posting at 10:43 in reference to the 10:12 attack at chuck but I had nothing to do with 11:24. And what I said had nothing to do with congratulating anyone. Can you or do you even read? Now who looks like a fool?

12:01 it’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.

^^Umm..you do dummy because where does @12:01 mention 11:24?? Jesus Christ, are you a retard???? I guess you just removed all doubt your a fucking moron. Moron.

The crony circle jerk. Exactly the kind of crap the city does not need. If the current administration indulges this in the normal back scratch arrangement then that will be a quick strike against them.

Follow Bob Barnett and Sly, and short whatever activity they get involved in.

When did Michael Bloomberg get so twisted on his priorities?

Anonymous said...

This wasn't about the deep state, it is about a lame duck chump trying to get on the gravy train with the usual revolving door shenanigans. Go back to mediating and leave the integrity of the city to another administration.

Without the bullhorn, the throwaway lines become just irrelevant noise.
