Jackson County Executive Frank White vetoes statue ordinance

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Jackson County Executive Frank White Jr. on Wednesday vetoed an ordinance that would put a question before voters in November about whether to remove two statues of Andrew Jackson in the county. In issuing the veto, White said the Jackson County Legislature "has not acted courageously" following demands for change in the wake of George Floyd's death in Minneapolis.

Isn't it funny how so many democrats call Trump dictator, hitler, communist, and everything else that has to do with a totalitarian dictator, but they are the ones who are accusing Trump of what's true about their selves. And didn't William Jackson the black barber from Natchez own slaves? Pretty sure he did and was extremely mean to them, at a young age he whipped them. I'll bet Frank White's family owned slave too.

Unless Andrew Jackson sneaks off that pedestal at night with his Glock, and is shooting people; we have other things to worry about. Frank is a faker !

I'm a liberal democrat and support a vote regarding the statue. Frank White was a good baseball player, but am incompetent civic leader.

Frank White was a mediocre ball player with a .255 lifetime batting average.

Usually batted 8th before the pitcher because he was such a weak hitter. He rides on the coattails of his teammates.

George Brett, Willie Wilson, John Mayberry, U.L. Washington, Al Cowens, were the studs of the old Royal's teams.

Ol Frank Whitey- George wasn't in KC. the 100 plus black killed murder victims this year were, however. Deal with what is real.

REMOVE FRANK WHITE'S STATUE FROM ROYALS STADIUM.

HE'S A CROOK WHO NEVER PAID HIS PROPERTY TAXES.

FORMER DEMOCRAT COUNTY EXECUTIVE AND FELON MIKE SANDER'S LAW FIRM PAID OFF WHITE'S MORTGAGE AND PROPERTY TAXES.

10:14 Pitchers don't hit in the AL as we have the DH rule. Frank was never a dominant hitter but he did win 8 Gold Gloves as a defensive player. Playing defense was the only thing he did not suck at in his entire life.

Frank White should be removed and replaced.

^ So Frank White batted 9th in the lineup that is even worse.

Standing up to a bully like Frank White takes some courage. It would take some courage to tag his statue at the K. It would take the wisdom of the voters to get rid of him this fall.
