TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! TAX FIGHTER BENCHMARKS FOR NEW KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS REVEALED!!!
It's payback time in Kansas City and Mayor Quinton Lucas has a lot of favors to return as he barely won against one of the most unpopular politicos in Missouri history.
To wit . . .
FIRST ON TKC WE'VE GOT A SNEAK PEEK AT THE LIST OF KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTER DEMANDS CONFRONTING MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS IN AN ATTEMPT TO KEEP HIM HONEST RATHER THAN PLAY NICE!!!
Here's the word . . .
"We'll be sending Mayor Quinton Lucas a list of policy goals and imperatives which merit his attention. The list will be forwarded to Council, local media and the Mayor's office in order to document how the New Mayor can be effective in his job and best fulfill his ambitious agenda."
Again, here's 1st look ahead of local media presser coverage . . .
HIRE MORE POLICE NOW!!!
In 1968 the KCPD promised to maintain 1500 officers on local streets. We're still 200 short of that 50 year old pledge and the recent homicide spike demonstrates the numbers are desperately needed.
Nobody expects Mayor Quinton to magically reduce the number of local murders already on a historic pace . . . But after earning a crucial police endorsement, the new Administration is obligated to pay back law enforcement and direct even more funding their way.
FIRE CITY MANAGER TROY SCHULTE!!!
Just as we predicted, City Manager Troy isn't going to step down without a fight. Here's an important fun fact:
There are more entrenched and influential bureaucrats loyal to City Manager Troy Schulte then there are supporters of Quinton Lucas at City Hall. However if Mayor Q doesn't get rid of City Manager Troy, then he has tacitly admitted he's powerless.
Watch this fight escalate QUICKLY and remember our blog community started it behind the scenes.
REJECT THE DOWNTOWN STADIUM!!!
This is a 3-year-goal for the new mayor because the push is on quickly to take advantage of his team of millennial twerps. Turnaround on the stadium issue would be devastating for Mayor Q but not unheard of . . . Heck, even Prez Trump is talking gun control, so anything is possible.
Steering the new mayor clear of developer promises on the new stadium is a priority for tax fighters but the fact is they're out-manned, underfunded and don't have an alternative economic stimulus plan for the upcoming recession. Already we've seen the new Mayor get cozy with developer advocates via his social media feeds hinting that his move to the big money corporate welfare KCMO agenda might be underway.
And so . . .
Better than pundit or policy analysts we ask our blog community . . .
WHAT IS YOUR BENCHMARK FOR MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS SUCCESS?!?!
Happy talk is easy for newsies and political hacks but we believe our blog community can do better than the status quo discourse in holding this mayor accountable for his campaign rhetoric.
