Kansas City Contemplates New City Manager



A quick review of the candidates merely at a superficial level sparks this hot take and tacit admission . . .

Despite a great deal of insider knowledge and perspective after years of following City Hall politics, TKC doesn't know who will be the next city manager. However, we do know EXACTLY who it WON'T be ...



Hint: It's the white guy. It won't be the white guy.

safe bet. But I still wonder how hard Mayor Q interviewed him. Probably gently, softly and sweetly.

^^^ Nailed it!
The "token" White Guy isn't fat enough to be a City Manager!

3 blacks and only 1 white? That is blatant Racism!

Asians didn't even make the final four.

3 Blacks and a token... The hypocrisy of City Hall equality shines so brightly it's blinding. I'm sure they would claim there weren't ANY other qualified white candidates, huh? Very believable, too!

Who would want that job, unless they are looking for a "special relationship" with the boss?

Another "screw job" for the city.

Hey Mayor! Everyone knows you want to appoint the first black female City Manager (apparently because those are the most important qualifications bar none). So, why not at least give the appearance of being fair with a better mix of finalist?!? Were there too many better qualified candidates?!?

CITY MANAGER WANTED
1. Are you completely unqualified?
2. Did you write a bad check in the last week?
3. Is Ebonics your primary language?

If so, please apply at 12th & Oak.

The white guy is just in there for optics. Doesn't matter who they pick. They will be incompetent. That's mandatory at City Hall.

^^Ugh huh. You said that 10 times already. Move on.

Who ever Lucas hires you can bet they will make the Schulte look like a saint.

No way the smart one with glasses gets the job.

WOW the looting of KCMO is well on its way. Blacks are looting 18th vine, kci, crime "fighting" organizations, so called discrimination claims/lawsuits are rampant, now the city manager's office.

Last one out turn of the lights, don't bother locking the doors there will be nothing left.

I can guarantee it won't be the white guy.

With the decisions that Lucas and the City Council have made over the past 5 months do I trust them to pick the best choice for City Manager...............................................................................................................................................................NO!

The white candidate is there just to give the appearance that the city is not racist in its hiring practices. No way he gets the job.

The woman doesn’t have any experience in running city government so she’s perfect for qball in someone’s back pocket to mold to his special needs, and I mean special needs!

No way to reply yet, huh Chimpy? Lol

the black female checks the most Demosleazeball identity scam boxes --esp. if she's a lezzie --then it's a sure thing.

remember, actual qualifications never matter to the Dems...

If one of them is a transsexual mooselimb they are a shoe in.

Look at the grave expression on Mayor McDrinkerson's face! This is the 'serious governance face' that he points at the nearest camera when he wants to look like he's doing something besides flailing about impotently.

Naming the first Black City Manager would be a mistake in this instance. Do the homework. She is simply not qualified and has too many conflicts in regards to the position. For example:

Since when do qualifications matter? We're leveling the playing field by appointing tokens. Get with the program!

You can bet the resume will not the primary basis for this hiring.
This is the basis for the failure of this city.

The Mayor said many months ago it would be a black woman.
Final question for the interview.
If the river flooded downtown what would you do.
1. Build a dyke and clean up the flood damage.
2. Stop garbage pick up. in the northland and eliminate all road work on the west side of the city.
3. Add spending to 18th and Vine

dyke

noun informal•offensive

a lesbian.

dike

a long wall or embankment built to prevent flooding from the sea.

And yet another Tony's Kansas City reader shows off his smarts.

Bandit said...

Agreed. Dykes are offensive. Have yet to meet one that doesn't have a chip on her shoulder.

Mary Vaughn was the first black female city manager. Q Ball swings and misses again.
