TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS ABSENT FROM SALES TAX INCREASE VOTE AS SUPPORTERS WAIT FOR HIM TO KEEP PROMISES!!!



More than anything, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas is one of the most likeable elected officials this cowtown has seen in more than a generation.

He's young, good looking, EXTREMELY INTELLIGENT and has a very calm, even-tempered manner that's rare of most elite politicians.

However . . .

SUPPORTERS OF MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS GROW IMPATIENT FOR THE NEW MAYOR TO LIVE UP TO SO MUCH HYPE!!!

Just a few examples . . .

- Already KC has embarked on MAJOR CORPORATE GIVEAWAYS. Downtown developments Strata, and Waddell & Reed HQ might have lost some cash after citywide complaints but still garnered MILLIONS IN SUBSIDY despite election pledges to limit these exact type of requests.

- The Mayor pledged to make reducing homicides his #1 priority . . . So far his legislative efforts have fallen flat in Missouri after misdirection from Guv Parson and the KCMO homicide count is now at a 10-year-high for January.

- There have been complaints about his busy schedule that are now starting to garner more legitimacy given his latest missed vote. Like politicos before him, the Mayor LOVES the national stage and this week engagements at the U.S. Conference of Mayors kept him away from 12th & Oak biz.

Consequence . . .

This week, The City Council voted 10-2 on Thursday to place the KCFD sale tax increase on the ballot in April. Credit where it's due Councilmembers Melissa Robinson and Eric Bunch voted against the measure. 

Mayor Quinton Lucas was absent.

A word from KICK-ASS INSIDER . . .

"We were expecting leadership from the mayor on this . . . We heard he was against the increase but in the end he just didn't show up and didn't participate in the vote. That's a dangerous precedent to just OPT OUT. I've heard the rumors he only wants one term. This is the first time I considered that they might be correct."

And so, the debate continues and KC is more concerned with football than municipal policy that hasn't strayed too far from previous administrations despite pledges made during election season.

Developing . . .

Why is everyone surprised? Quinton has proven he is a total chickenshit.

Lucas is a joke who isn't going to do squat. I hope he keeps his position open at KU, he's going to need it to fall back on.

If we don't have enough money in the general fund for these necessary expenses, how are we going to have money for free bus rides.

His inability to lead and handle Katherine Shields has been more than evident. It appears she is running the city and the rest of the council is falling right behind her. The biggest problem facing this city is violence. His absence everywhere, except Twitter, is evident. His honeymoon is over, time to start holding him to the same standard we held Sly James to. I hear he is a great guy, but that doesn’t keep families safe. I don’t pretend to understand the issues with the fire department. I do know that crime is out of control and not finding a way to pay for police services should speak volumes. The council appears to favor Shields and her style, even if it means only taking care of her issues.

too busy with selfies...

I didn't vote for him. He doesn't want one term, let alone two. Shields and Loar are free to rule the roost.

Like? Whats to like so far? I guess if you like seeing his face in pictures everywhere then he's your man. He played his hand very well on the Waddell & Reed give away. Quinton thinks he dealt us all a Royal Flush on that deal but all the residents had to show in the end was a busted hand and owing the bank millions. Maybe he fell asleep in his idling car and missed the meeting.

There needs to be a in-depth, comprehensive financial audit of the waste and mismanagement occurring at City Hall. Residents keep allowing them to take their money and they keep misusing it. TIF "gifts" are an absolute joke...no wonder the urban core is so pissed off and violent! They got the Paseo/MLK fiasco turned around...now they need to focus on the financial waste at City Hall. The violence needs to be directed at the "tax and spend" demoncrats who've lied about helping the urban core and done NOTHING! Anyone allowing for them (TIF Gifts) should be strung up and hung in the middle of Power & Light!!! Same goes for anyone voting to put tax increases on the ballot, increasing property taxes...etc. It will probably have to come to that before anything changes. These socialists need to be treated the same way citizens in FAILING socialist countries are treated by their government "leaders." Look it up! Some might suggest 12-20 very selective "murders" could change KCMO for the better, including lowering the crime rate!

Those who always vote for the tax increases are those who seldom pay them. Poor people get out and vote for these things because they know the rich people will be who pays for them. That's why you always see large voter turnout in the ghetto areas.

^^^^ +100 on the audit idea. KC is in DESPERATE need of accountability.

Quinton is a lying, worthless piece of shit, as everyone already knew when he was elected. But, the alternative was Jolie Justus., even more worthless than Quinton.

Instead of putting up with one term from this racist why don't you ask him to step down now?

No matter who we elect, things do not change in this city. Tax, spend, and giveaways.

JUST THE FACTS MA'AM

Quinton Lucas has ALWAYS been a phony.

His real name is Quinton Wilson. A Missouri court case determined his biological father (last name Wilson) with 99.99% accuracy, twice!

How come he's never told the story details about how he got into the private Barstow School, and who paid the bills?

Same thing for Washington University - St. Louis.

Same thing for Cornell Law School in New York.

After law school, who set up his clerkship with Judge Duane Benton of the U.S. Court of Appeals 8th Circuit? (Benton previously served in Governor Ashcroft's administration and was a nominee of President George W. Bush.)

Quinton was a law graduate failure in practice. He graduated in 2009, and started at KU Law School as a lecturer by 2012. Who secured the job at KU for Quinton, and why did the law school accept someone into their minority hire program with such light credentials?

The moment he announced for a KCMO Council seat, why did KC Star writers immediately begin hyping him as the next Mayor?

Why does Quinton Lucas claim residency in the 18th and Vine neighborhood? With his relatively high income, why does he rent an apartment in a City-owned building which pays no property taxes?

When it comes to campaign staff, etc., why does Quinton primarily rely upon whites from Johnson County KS and non-East-side residents?

How long will Quinton continue to play this political game of pandering to East-side residents, while simultaneously doing the bidding of KC law firms, Kansas developers, and the status quo business community who offer campaign cash and favors in exchange for not rocking the boat?

What are his supporters waiting for?
He smiles, takes selfies, makes ponderous empty speeches, and lives as high as possible on the taxpayer's dime.
Just like he promised.
Mission accomplished!
Everything else is everyone else's fault.
It never changes.

I voted for you Lucas but I am watching and having my doubts. Consider me and my extended family as no votes on any future tax proposals.

The campaign was run by Kathryn Shield, not Mayor Selfie. If you wanted a mayor with a spine you should have voted for the other candidate.

A tweet from “Mayor Q” (how qute!) talked about the KU game basketball brawl. Lucas said he was “never gonna stand for throwing away a young black man’s career,” referring to the KU player who was suspended for fighting. Lucas was rightly called out for qualifying his comment with race. Says a lot about the way the mayor thinks.
Right now he’s only thinking about going to Miami on Super Bowl Sunday and hobnobbing with Mahomes and riding in the victory parade. The man’s got his priorities. Lowering homicides isn’t one of them.

Would love to know some of these answers. If you know them, please share.

I want to be the first to invite my friends in KCMO to come over to JOCO to eat and shop here with our lower sales taxes. We welcome you here. You can still buy your gas in KCMO with the lower gas taxes too but remember we still have taxes on groceries.

He is a Dumbocrate, so no surprise!! And just so everyone knows (whistle blower here) All of your KCFD and KCPD "heros" are members of a Democrate backed Union, and their Union sucks gay ass, kills babies prior to birth etc etc etc etc, yet the Union members who support suh shit are deemed heros - what a joke!!! City services need a non biased entity to keep the services they provide and the funds that fund them above board! Corruption in Kansas City Government would blow your mind if you actually knew how corrupt it is! Next time you hit a pothole - well thats a simple reminder on how fucked up this city is! Your tax dollars are misapropriated because the KC gov is corrupt AF!

He is Kansas Citys Obama

Grip Matlock, your statement is much truer than what you likely even realize. Nice call!

Quinton continues to be groomed for advancement.

If you're interested in examples, compare the backgrounds of Barack Obama and Deval Patrick (Obama's clone, in case he self-destructed).
