TKC MUST SEE!!! FORMER KANSAS CITY COUNCIL DUDE JERMAINE REED NOW RUNNING FOR LOWLY MCC BOARD!!!
The political life is hard to abandon and Kansas City is an unforgiving little town that seldom allows people to reinvent themselves without moving away.
Accordingly and part of our "WHERE ARE THEY NOW??" series . . .
COUNCIL DUDE JERMAINE REED LAUNCHES HIS LATEST CAMPAIGN FOR A THROWAWAY LOCAL ELECTED OFFICE!!!
The campaign lit is quite nice and far beyond what most contenders for this office bother to print.
Mr. Reed isn't yet allowed to start lobbying in at City Hall and, truth be told, he never really had the schmoozing skills required to connect or even ask favors of politicos. Still, we thought he'd land a six figure job at some local corporation that didn't know as much.
Even better, maybe the college time will inspire him to think about the Master's Degree debacle that hurt his chances during the mayoral contest.
Still, Kansas City insiders are surprised that he's basically "running for a place on a community college school board."
It's certainly not glamorous work but possibly a sign of dedication to public service from a more mature politico who was once one of the youngest people ever elected to KCMO council.
