TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! COUNCIL LADY CORONAVIRUS SELF-QUARANTINE SPARKS INSIDER QUESTIONS ABOUT KANSAS CITY SOLID WASTE FUTURE!!!



The impact of COVID-19 on KCMO politics continues to expand.

The 5th district Council Lady recently disclosed an important COVID-19 health precaution documented in the newspaper:

"Councilwoman Ryana Parks-Shaw said she, too, attended the conference and was notified about the attendees who tested positive. She also isn’t exhibiting symptoms but chose to self-quarantine to be cautious.

"Parks-Shaw said she avoided shaking hands or touching elevator buttons at the conference. She left on Wednesday, March 11, so she said her self-quarantine ends Tuesday, March 24."

But here's what the paper didn't mention . . .

COUNCILWOMAN RYANA PARKS-SHAW IS MARRIED TO KCMO SOLID WASTE DIVISION DIRECTOR MICHAEL SHAW AND THERE'S NO GUIDANCE ON HOW HER SELF-QUARANTINE MIGHT IMPACT THE ROLLOUT OF IMPORTANT NEW TRASH PICKUP EFFORTS!!!

Here's the word from AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS . . .

"First of all, I guess we must forgo the questions about a member of council so closely connected with a department leader in Public Works. But what troubles me is that KCMO is ready expand trash pickup staring May 1st and the Solid Waste division will be facing tough challenges. The Councilwoman didn't specify if she'll be at home and how her self-quarantine might impact her husband. Obviously our concern is for their health but there's also the question about transmission and risks that might impact all city workers. They are a power couple -- One high level public spokesman bureaucrat and the other an elected official -- If we're serious about these self-quarantine precautions, then KC needs more disclosure and must protect our Solid Waste Department and Public Works employees.

We've tweeted the question to Council Lady Shaw and will update with any reply.

if more city hall employees stopped showing up to work, you'd be amazed at how efficiently KC would run.

@7:3,you've never heard of my dog's turds either, but they're worth seven times what you are.

KC picking up trash is a good idea in theory but I think in the future we'll see that KCMO does an even worse job than private contractors. There is a reason that the work was contracted out in the first place.

Another excuse to sit on her couch and eat while watching The View.

... and nothing of value was lost.

@7:53 is right, City employees used to be responsible for picking up trash in the Northland, and the hiring of Private Contractors was City's response to the huge number of ongoing complaints from Northland residents about late pickups and failures to pick up the trash for weeks at a time in many areas.

The situation only improved (hiring outside Contractors) after Northland residents started hauling their trash bags to City Councilperson's houses and leaving them in their driveways!

Can we let all the grifters just stay home and let the qualified workers get the job done right and on ahead of schedule.

First off it's a huge conflict of interest for either one to have the positions that they do. One or the other needs to step away from their position with this city.

^^I agree 100%

Super dave is right. Where is the media, does it investigate corruption anymore or just promote globalism, mass immigration, and race baiting.

No doubt a closer look would reveal the incestuous politics where contracts are awarded to politician friends, relatives and donors over more qualified choices.

^^But dave, you would be a more likely candidate than I would. Being that you're a geriatric fucktard & all. Remember: You don't live in KC, so keep your opinions about it to yourself!!!
