Tracy Thomas Vs. Shawnee Council Lady

Here's a suburban treatise targeting a suburban politico written in the style of Prez Trump's tweets and targeting some lady in the thankless job that Tracy once occupied . . . Read more:

Shawnee's Mayor, "Nervous Nell" Michelle Distler so paranoid, she fears councilman calling in remotely could be an imposter

Ever since she quit the Republican party last spring, (after a lifetime), Shawnee's recently re-elected mayor, Michelle "Nervous Nell" Distler has been consumed with more conspiracy theories and paranoid suspicions than Adam Schiff. Most recently, at the Jan.

But the call in could be by an imposter. What is Tracy trying to hide?

The insanity has only just begun.

How do Native Americans feel about a city named after their tribe?

If Tracy is right- Nervous is a huge gig for a mayor... every Native American should be offended!

Too new names for Shawnee:

1. BUCK. Biggest Ugliest Community(center) (in) Kansas B.U.C.K.

2. FUCK Fucking Ugliest Community (center)(in) Kansas
3. CRAP Community Racists Against Poor

Should have a city-wise vote to select the new name.

Such an improvement to rename the city Buck-Fuck-Crap.

I would combine the names and just call it ButtFuckCrap.

Good entertaining writing from TT.

Does anybody have any idea what that post was about. I can't make sense of it.

10:08, it was calling out the mayor for manipulating the council and refusing to do her job.

She's a hot mess of a victim. Just like every other Democrat.

Tracy Thomas said...

Hey, 8:25, you're out of line. And need to sign your name.

Shawnee is a GREAT city. You get about 1/3 more house for your money than Lenexa. It's safe. Good schools and streets and parks. And unlike the rest of Joco, has a friendly Mayberry vibe. I love living here in Seven Hills. Named after the Seven Hills of Rome.

The mayor is just one person. She has turned her back on the eastern half of the city, the ones that brung her. To cozy up to the liberals, socialists and Indivisible crowd--her newly adopted Democrat/Indie/Bernie tribe. She doesn't run this town. Like every major city in the metro, it's a "weak mayor form of government". The City Manager is in charge. Hired by a majority. Hanging on by a thread.

Distler is the opposite demeanor and governing abilities of Jim Allen, former mayor and now County Commissioner. God forbid if she thinks that's her next lily pad to a fat pension.

And for the record, Tony--I was never mayor. Just on the council, and a former council president 16 years ago, during the Jim Allen years. Biggest financial supporter of the 72% of residents who voted NO, There's A Better Way against last summer's rejected community center proposed to be next to a grease trap factory.

I have every confidence, the fiscal conservatives will right this ship of state. Despite Captain Queeg and her nervous tizzies.

I have lived in Shawnee 38 years. So glad we voters said no to a stupid fad.

Thanks for standing up for the homeowners, Tracy.

We don't want to be like Lenexa. And sure ain't movin' to KCMO!

Your mayor is a hottie. Who's she dating?

Shawnee is getting a McLain's Market downtown next year. It's a happenin' town, despite the mayor.

Much ado about a worthless mayor said...

Shawnee is the most real city in Johnson County.
Glad a few smart fiscal conservatives have joined the council to keep it on track.

Cant you just recall the mayor and get that Stephanie Meyer chick elected instead? Johnson county needs a mayor with two rockin' Moroccan bodyguards!

Peggy Dunn, Mayor of Leawood said...

Mayor Distler sounds about as ineffective as Quinton Lucas.

Lenexa Mayor Mike Boehm said...

I'm just glad Distler pushed thru the NDO before I had to...

Muffin Man said...

McLain's Market--coming to Shawnee when??
I can't find a place to park to get my muffins at 107th and Roe store...

Converted Dems are worse than ex smokers said...

Distler has already ordered a tent and space heaters for a Bernie fundraiser and remote inaugural ball in the parking lot at McLain's Market in downtown Shawnee for January 2021.

Sad said...

I grew up in Shawnee Village, a block from Michelle Distler. She's changed. Turned her back on us with never opposing that unnecessary community center. I feel played and betrayed.

And after the city lost, 72% to 28%, when a resident and business man suggested they find out WHY if failed so big, did the Mayor take that suggestion? No. She just allowed council to call us liars and stupid.

Thank you, Tracy, for having the courage to speak up.

I listen to meetings online. cityofshawnee.org. Never heard any mayor yell before.

I find people yell when they've been caught.

At least in KCMO, our mayor doesn't cry in his car. He just sleeps it off till the Lawrence popo wake him up.

She's gone looney tunes said...

At the mayor's monthly coffee, she shared that when the sister city folks were coming to visit, including a 45 minute windshield tour of the highlights of our city, Michelle Distler called the police chief and insisted on an escort.

She said, 26 of us heard her say it, she was afraid the dignitaries from Listowel, Belgium, might kidnap her. Or be imposters. Now that is craycray thinking.

Does the city's health care insurance cover nervous breakdowns?

What's the DSM code for paranoia?
And is there a special one for Johnson County?

Anonymous said...

It's DSM Joco Lite--
no inpatient treatment.
Just a morning muffin from McLains Market.

Coming soon to downtown Shawnee.

Agree, totally, 9:49.

Ray Erlichman tells it like he sees it, Jersey style.

Yeppers. Shawnee Ray USED to be Mayor Distler's biggest rescuer and defender. Till he asked her to meet him for lunch. and she had yet another paranoid delusion.

She refused to be seen with him in public for fear city staff would see her colluding with a critic.

Now he's dropped his pom poms,,,

Your mayor lady has lost her marbles and thrown in with the staff.

How about a trade. Distler moves to KCMO to run here. Cuz OUR council is like sewer rats...ain't afraid a nuthin. She'd be a breath of fresh air with her nose in a hankie.

Or hey, she can be like Clay Chastain, and just rent an apartment here in midtown, and visit every couple of months. Qualifies as residency for KCMO.

We'll send over Katie Shields as a swap. She'll build some high rises and $1000 a month affordable housing at taxpayer expense, fer shure.

Tracy is usually right on. She needs a regular radio show. So right about powerless mayors too.
