TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS SUFFERS JOB APPROVAL DECLINE AFTER VIOLENT PLAZA PROTEST AND WORSENING HOMICIDE SPIKE!!!



Kneeling with protesters, love letters to the po-po and begging for anti-crime help from Missouri Republicans has eroded voter confidence in Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas.

To wit . . .

ACCORDING TO AN EXCLUSIVE & KICK-ASS SURVEY OF TKC READERS, THE JOB APPROVAL OF MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS DECLINED 50% OVER RECENT WEEKS!!!

To be fair, let's remember that even this community of skeptics seemed to approve of Mayor Lucas and his quick reaction to the deadly coronavirus pandemic. The young mayor shut down events, bars & local biz in a controversial move that likely helped to save lives.

However . . .

In a survey of over 1000 reader comments and e-mails sent to about two dozen regular readers . . . The nicest quote we could find was: "He's doing the best he can."

Meanwhile, readers of this blog have consistently objected to double-dealing against police and protesters in addition to a very obvious push for publicity from national news outlets.



Even as Kansas City preps to hit 100 murders in the very near future . . . "Mayor Q" attempted to refocus the public on the half-billion dollar deal awarded to QB Patrick Mahomes.

Whilst mainstream media coverage can often help earn attention and assistance for local leaders and their cities, a recent media blitz from the Mayor Quinton Lucas was mostly focused on highlighting the deplorable racism of a handful of constituents.

And all of this leads us to a quick breakdown of the numbers with a bit of help from tech friends and longtime readers of this blog.

- Over the past month 75% of comments regarding Mayor Lucas have been negative vs. a 24% negativity rating betwixt March/April.

- Negative e-mails sent to TKC regarding Mayor Lucas have spiked 300% vs. March when a few readers actually defended his shut down actions.

- Defense of Mayor Lucas and public mask requirements to curb coronavirus spread is split 50/50 among TKC readers according to both comments & reader e-mails.

- On the topic of anti-crime effectiveness, nearly 81% of TKC readers disapprove of tactics from Mayor Lucas. Again, to be fair, local anti-crime groups and Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker have a much higher ranking.

Accordingly . . .

GIVEN THE HISTORICALLY LOW APPROVAL RATING OF MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS FROM CRANKY TKC READERS . . . HOW WOULD YOU RATE HIS JOB PERFORMANCE?!?

He's not to blame for the homicide uptick but he certainly isn't bringing anything new to the table. He might be even less effective then Sly when it comes to this issue. At least Sly didn't even pretend to care.

Quinton isn't a wartime mayor.

Dex said...

I agree with him totally on mask. But I think he found out with a lot of other politicians that taking a knee was a bad look. I doubt we'll see him do it again.

Well recall him! You democrats need to stop sitting around and complaining, and if you think us repubs are going to help you think again. You made your bed for years now deal with it, clean up your own mess! Do it NOW or you are not going to have a city left, but a sewer. Don't count on Lucas with no balls or backbone, get rid of him, along with peters baker and your chief of police. The very people who support the Marxist movements are killing their own. The latest a little 8 year old. WAKE UP YOU IDIOTS. Flipping MORONS Oh and tell Mahomes to keep his mouth shut.

If not for the Chief’s Super Bowl win and the Mahomes contract would have anything positive to point to under his blundering administration? Even the Chiefs’ playoff victories prompted a mass shooting at the 9ine Ultra Lounge so the theme of his term seems clear. Violence and shootings and death.

I think he's doing great. Please add to your tally. He inherited countless messes. He's engaged. He's smart. Leave him alone. And maybe get a life, while you're at it, Bozos.

When your "approval rating" is nothing but popularity based on a smile, empty promises, telling everyone whatever they want to hear, and pitching yourself endlessly to the media, time is not on your side.
One after another, groups who thought kneely Lucas promised to actually DO something for them are left holding the bag.
And, at the end of the day, he's just like all the rest of the KCMO politicos.
He'll head to the Chamber board room and get his marching orders from the big guys and developers.
And now back to your regularly scheduled program.
Chaos, bedlam, and murder in the streets.

This is completely unfair.

Mayor Lucas is working to help KC through unprecedented social upheaval. He has done his best to try and listen to all sides and even better, bring together Kansas City despite some serious disagreement. They mayor has met with countless people and opened up communication from all levels but suddenly the readers of this blog think that they can cast judgement on him and claim that EVERYTHING he is doing is wrong. That is not up to you, I know that many of you probably don't live inside the city limits. And for that, shame on you!

KC loves it's mayor and he has been through a trying time with just one year in office. I would say his job performance is an A+ and he's getting even better as he goes along despite all of the negativity from the haters on this blog who don't want to see Kansas City succeed.

Byron Funkhouser said...

All of this would be more convincing if these problems weren't playing out in cities all across the country.

It's juvenile to criticize your mayor for failing to solve problems that have no solution, or at least, haven't been solved by any other cities, either.

Of course, one of the trolls will be along to blame Democratic leadership with no mention of the divisive national, Republican leadership.

Donald Trump said in his inauguration speech that he had a plan to end violence in the cities in 30 days.

He can't do that, & neither can your mayor, or any mayor.

Heard him on KMBZ this morning. Walking the fence between the protesters and police. He all but openly supports criminality. How can he be an example. KCMO needs to wake up before all the common sense adults move out.

The Mayor is the puppet of Greater KC Chamber of Commerce. So along as we don't end the welfare for the KC 1%, he is going to be Mayor no matter how bad a job he is doing.

Actually, what's happening in KCMO is happening in ALL THE SAME PARTS OF CITIES across the country.
The gun laws are the same throughout the state of Missouri.
In fact, they're the same throughout the city of KCMO.
But over 90% of the homicides are committed by a small percentage of one demographic group and take place in a clearly defined area of the city.
Just like in all the other urban areas where the carnage has become too horrendous for even the usual suspects to ignore while they march around condemning "police brutality".
The father of the young girl murdered recently in Atlanta.
"We're killing our own", he said.
At least he's honest.

somebody above said that he was trying his best to maintain balance during difficult times.

that's probably right.

he may be lying to both sides and, especially, behind closed doors.

but that doesn't mean he's not doing a pretty good job, imho.

moreover, kansas city is a town where people basically get along, provided they're not pushed apart beyond a point of no return.

Can someone explain why Lateefa has to yell and scream at the movie screen whenever I try to watch a movie at AMC Theatre's?

Instead of the theater showing a commercial for everyone to shut off their cell phones; they need Bob Barker telling Lateefa to shut the fuck up during the movie.

This doesn’t make any sense. Quinton has done an excellent job so far. People who are against him are racist homophobic rednecks.

You know what this means, don't you?

Mayor Quagmire will soon announce that he's tested positive for the coronavirus!!!!!!

This guy is a publicity hound, who keeps the NY Times and CNN on speed-dial.

When he was running for Mayor, he portrayed himself as pro-KCPD, doing ride-alongs and asking for their endorsement.
As Mayor, he marches with anti-police protestors and refuses to forcefully stand up for Chief Smith, while multiple black groups try to force Smith out so they can bring in a black replacement.

When running for Mayor, and after being elected, Lucas chooses a white campaign manager/chief of staff, a white campaign treasurer and assistant treasurer, and lots of white JoCo campaign workers. Lucas takes most of his campaign money from wealthy JoCo white business-people and non-residents who are doing development deals in KCMO.
As Mayor, he supports the Black Lives Matter protestors, removing J.C. Nichols' name from fountains and roadways, and panders to those who preach the evils of white institutional racism.

Quinton is an opportunist, who constantly tries to play both sides, telling everyone what he thinks they want to hear.

GO4, what qualifies one to not be "ashamed" of presumably commenting on this blog? I do not live in KC. However, I pay more taxes to KC than probably half the taxpayers in the City. A lot of my work occurs in KC. I'm interested and invested in KC. So, does that make me unable to contribute my thoughts to the leadership or the management of the City? Or events therein? I would say those facts make my opinion as valid as that of at least 50% of the City many of whom 1) don't pay taxes, 2) are not engaged in the slightest in the electoral process, 3) don't give a rats ass about the management of the City.

But, tell me go4: does my opinion count? I'm also very curious if you actually live in the City gopher, or are you simply a hired man to promote the City around various news outlets? BTW, I do actually appreciate your occasional posts whether I agree with them or not.
