Former 4th District Council Contender Earns Kansas City LISC Honcho Gig

An impressive move from a congressional office to the local development scene despite a council campaign detour . . .

"Geoffrey W. Jolley will lead LISC’s local staff, partnerships and community investment efforts, which to date have fueled nearly $1 billion in development activity focused on affordable housing, economic development, health, community safety and jobs. Nationwide, LISC has invested more than $20 billion to catalyze opportunity for residents and communities."

Read more and realize that only about two dozen people run this town:

Geoff Jolley is the New Executive Director of LISC Kansas City | Local Initiatives Support Corporation

LISC has named Geoff Jolley to lead its ambitious community investment plans in Kansas City. Jolley, who has spent decades working on the interests of local residents as both a policy expert and community leader, takes the helm of LISC Kansas City this month to oversee work on affordable housing, economic development, health, community safety and jobs.

Not a thug, just another grifter.

Kind of looks like a guy who would walk into the room to interrogate you in some holding cell.

He's the guy that Eric "Landslide" Bunch defeated for the Fourth District Council seat by 314 of 27,000 votes!

Would have made a great Councilman, if somebody other than Sly James had been Mayor and the votes had been honestly counted!

LISC sounds like one of those money laundering gigs using taxpayer dollars to payoff democrats and buy their votes. Never heard of it in my 25 years in KC. Specifically - how have these folks helped KC with affordable housing, economic development, health, community safety and jobs? Or have they just used tax payer dollars to employ people and tell them and their families to vote Democrat? Just like the school board. Does this group also issue contracts to pay off donors and get more D votes? Just like the school board.

Think this LISC company has a dental and orthodontics plan? Think it covers tooth straighteners and whitening?

Will it be as effective as Cleavers "GreenZone".
We've got a couple of solar panels, a charging station (right behind Gates BBQ) and a new strip mall to show for all those federal dollars.
