TKC READER: KANSAS CITY EARNS SECOND CHANCE TO SUPPORT OPENLY GAY CANDIDATE AS PETE BUTTIGIEG SURGES AMONG DEMOCRATIC PARTY PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDERS 2020!!!
As always, we welcome comments and messages from our blog community. Tonight we highlight this analysis of recent Democratic Party upheaval and how it applies locally.
Here's the word from a friend of the blog who sent this quick response our way after we asked for just a bit of guidance . . .
"TKC, this year Kansas City passed on the first openly gay mayor in our history. Admittedly, former Councilwoman Jolie Justus had a "complicated" campaign but now Pete Buttigieg is becoming the Democratic Party front runner and I'm hoping our town will embrace him instead of holding on to the past. Remember that he earned a VERY warm welcome when he visited the Veterans Community Project. It's clear KC is ready for a candidate that stands out from the rest of the pack and has the potential to make history."
