COMMUNITY QUESTION TRENDING: IS COUNCIL LADY KATHERYN SHIELDS THE REAL KANSAS CITY MAYOR?!?!



Regarding the controversial Strata deal and a half-hearted and unsuccessful attempt at opposition by new Mayor Quinton Lucas, here's an important quote and word spreading quickly in the community about who really runs this town . . .

"His pusillanimous refusal to veto this diversion of desperately needed tax revenues from poor school children to wealthy developers is another indication that Katheryn Shields is the de facto mayor of this city."

You decide . . .

Maybe not a question as much as a statement of fact. There's an important game that rules the council chamber. The rules are simple.

It's called:

Count to 7.

That's who determines who is in charge.

Quinton could have changed the rules in his favor with a veto of strata and made it count to 8.

But he didn't do it.

So the question is valid AND it's coming up more often outside of this dumb blog.

^^^^ unfair. It's a weak mayor form of government. With Troy moving to the County, now is the time when Quinton an his supporters should think about changing that. KC can't afford another lackluster city manager.

Remember that Kathryn Shields was indicted for mortgage fraud when she was the Jackson County Executive.

The notion of a "weak mayor" system being an excuse for cowardice really gets old.
When Sly wanted things like a streetcar or airport terminal, he threatened and cajoled and was a whirling dervish.
But when issues didn't interest him, he was a "weak mayor", just one of 13 on the council.
None of these people is much concerned about the actual responsibilities of city government, public safety being the most important.
Making excuses for picking and choosing what interests and benefits each the most really has nothing to do with the "system".
Just like local control of the KCPD would make that operation much much worse.

Isn't she the one that escaped going to the slammer for mortgage fraud?

The Feds (FBI) probably figured out there is not enough jail space to house all these clowns and there wouldn't be a government in KCMO after they rounded up, cuffed, and orange jump suited everybody involved in the Great KCMO Racketfest. Just let the mess implode on it's on.

City Hall has a lot of characters but I wouldn't call them "Clowns". It only minimizes the seriousness of the situation the public is up against.

Frankly Kathryn is the better option for decisions. Quinton isn't capable of making a decision.

Not one penny of tax payer money was diverted from poor children’s schools to the Strata project. The city is guaranteeing a loan to build a parking garage which may at some time in the future require expenditure of tax payer money, but they haven’t paid, and won’t pay, a penny toward construction.

Speaking of incentives where is Tweety Q with these crooks at PIEA. Giving a confirmed National Slumlord this smorgasbord of handouts?

Big Affordable Housing Project Planned Near Downtown on Paseo

The PIEA board enthusiastically endorsed the developers request for incentives including a 25-year property tax abatement, 10 years at 100 percent, 15 years at 50 percent; a $9.5 million revenue bond, and a sales tax exemption on construction material.

Oh wait it's affordable housing! The politicians dream come true. Start scheduling the photo ops! Won't cost taxpayers a dime!

^^^ Sly and Troy are still on the board of directors of that racketeering
outfit 5:35.

Doesn't matter anymore it's pretty obvious that anyone who built this city Pre Sly era who doesn't fall in lockstep with the "new cKmO paradigm" - situation normal all fucked up, is targeted for "removal" in this corrupt shit hole.
