TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS 'TEMPORARILY' REMOVES COUNCIL MEMBER TERESA LOAR AS T&I COMMITTEE CHAIR AMID OUTCRY OVER ALLEGATIONS OF RACISM!!!

A pandemic Summer fight which featured dueling charges of racism and corruption has now (almost) been resolved on the first day of Autumn by Mayor Quinton Lucas.

To wit . . .

MAYOR LUCAS GIVES COUNCIL LADY LOAR TIME OUT!!!

Here's the word from one of the best and most reliable KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS, first in KC:

"Mayor Lucas just released a 3 page letter naming himself as the interim chair of the Transportation and Infrastructure committee effectively relieving councilwoman Loar from the seat as chair."

We've chronicled this one for months but here's the TLDR . . . 

Council Lady Loar got into a beef with her colleague, Council Lady Melissa Robinson. Amid a heated argument over the city owned new dog kennel (lulz) there were allegations of racism. Council Lady Loar was reprimanded by Mayor Lucas and sent to implicit bias training. Last week a council coalition boycotted a T&I meeting and demanded her removal. And today, at long last, Mayor Lucas responded to community pressure and repeated community demands for her removal

Update: Talker Pete Mundo tweets that this could be the Mayor making a "semi" move - "Hearing that this is temporary and the chairman's position will eventually be handed back to Loar. So then what happens if council members continue to avoid committee meetings with Loar temporarily out?"

Accordingly . . .

HERE'S THE FIRST LOOK AT MAYOR Q'S TIME OUT LETTER!!!

Read closely and tell us if there are any fun lines . . .

Update . . .

Local news links:

KSHB: The Kansas City, Missouri, City Council’s Transportation, Infrastructure and Operations Committee has a new chair — Mayor Quinton Lucas.

KMBC: Mayor Lucas said he plans to introduce committee procedures that will ensure fairness for committee members and staff.

Here's a quick transcription of the relevant passages from the Mayor's letter which he just posted about 30 minutes ago:

"Over recent weeks, all members of the Transportation, Infrastructure, and Operations Committee, save one, have expressed concerns to e about the conduct of another committee member or members both during committee meetings and in external work and communications. Heretofore, I have intervened only in a matter pertaining to actions unbefitting of Council conduct before a meeting of the full City Council. Subsequent to the August discussion at full Council, however, several committee members raised additional concerns about “unethical” and “unprofessional” conduct of the chair. The chair has, in turn, raised concerns about “contract intervention” by committee peers. While the committee partnership may not be irretrievably broken, it is obviously materially strained."

"Despite that strain the work of the public remains imperative, particularly as it pertains to the time-sensitive Kansas City International Airport Terminal Modernization Program. Having served on the last Council and on both precursors to this committee, I witnessed how Mayor/Council conflict disserved the best interests of our City and the flying public in Missouri, Kansas, and beyond. I also saw how frustrations, beyond mere disagreements, in our body and among certain City staff distracted at times from substantive questions of how best to proceed in the terminal modernization program. I do not intend to see a return to that time either on this project or in any of the areas under the supervision of the Transportation, Infrastructure, and Operations Committee.

"I, with this letter announce that I appoint myself to server on an interim basis as committee chair, effective immediately, and first chairing the committee meeting on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 . . ."

And here's the Mayor's money line about the "time out" and as he imagines that he can make things right and smooth over tensions at 12th & Oak:

"Accordingly, I will expect the Transportation, Infrastructure, and Operations Committee to return to its original constitution in due course assuming our foundation of mutual professional respect is rebuilt and without subsequent palace intrigue."

 Good luck with all that . . .

I would say this would start the recall but nobody is going to get riled up over a contract debate.

Lucas caved to Robinson playing the race card, and then of course dimwitted Bunch just sucking up to anything politically correct. I've tried to continue to support Lucas in these trying times, but he caves to pressure all the time. Where is his backbone? Disappointed.

This should make a great law suit. But, agree with Bandit. It’s fun to watch the Libs eat their own.

When the race card is played for personal gain and the Mayor supports it ....it only makes people more racist. Black folks undermine their agenda and don't even get it. Very shortsighted and a Mayor that is weak.

Whites played the race card for 400 years and did just fine.

Does this mean Mayor Q has now become the project manager for the airport? Does he have construction experience on his resume? Has he ever built anything? What could go wrong with this plan?

Anonymous said...

Did they? Blacks didn’t? What a sophomoric response. Since whites did something 400 years ago, which is the same blacks did, let’s fire this woman. 12:21, your a hateful bigot.

Anonymous said...

Let's hope Lucas has a bigger plan and that he is just trying to placate his JUNIOR councilmembers. This is a council that will get nothing done with race bating Robinson and her lacky Bunch boy. I trust the Mayor is smarter than his current action would suggest. If he isn't, his leadership days are limited!

Racism rules in KCMO! Dare to be white and have opposition to local black political hacks and your OUT! It seems obvious that black politicians have taken control of the City Govt. for good. Local black elites are more known for corruption and dishonesty than being effective honest elected officials. KCMO is screwed. The voters deserve everything they get. It will be hard and deep.Get your popcorn out, something strong to drink and enjoy!

And we have four finalist for the City Manger position. Does ANYONE think that the more qualified white guy has a chance in hell of getting the job????? Reverse racism doesn't make two wrongs a right.

MLK would be disappointed this woman was judged based on the color of her skin and not the content of her character. He's rolling in his grave over this miscarriage of justice ... just like he was over the O.J. murder verdict. He got back at Johnnie Cochran for that one, though. MLK has a far reach beyond the grave when it comes to reverse racism, too.

None of this gives me much hope in how the new airport is going to get finished.

a good move for the mayor - he will now be better able to realize the incompetence that remains leftover to work with, assuming there is such.

“Hot head” Teresa Loar who everyone knows runs her mouth too much and drinks too much is not a racist. Just a clumsy political hack.

Remember, she wanted to “renovate the old terminals to the bones.” Except no council colleague supported her and 70% of the public voted against her. This old gurl was on the wrong side of the biggest public issue in two generations. Too stubborn to understand in a post 9/11 world the old terminals are obsolete. What a clumsy political hack.

She’s been bitching about people, stabbing them in the back, deflecting her own failures onto others and sniping for years. She bitched about Mayor James, she bitched about Troy Schulte, she bitched about Mike Burke, she’s bitched about the street car, she’s bitched about Power & Light and she’s bitched and ran her mouth for years. She’s never been able to build a consensus for anything. Yet she thinks it is effective to just scream, push over the apple cart and walk away. What a political hack.

She’s finally getting her due. She should be permanently removed from the chairmanship position and put out to pasture.

Good luck to her son through all this. He is a Sargent with the KCMO Police Department. He is a poor bloke with a tough task. He is always having to explain away his mother’s bitching and drinking to his colleagues. And now is no different.

Anonymous said...

More wishy washy leadership from Lucas. He avoids taking a stand at all costs, especially one that would put him on the wrong side of the city's black power brokers.

We'll see how he handles the committee, assuming they do resume their meetings. Will he let Robinson and her crew award contracts to their cronies and donors? My guess is yes.

BLM is organizing an airport event where they will be painting all the jets. Quinton is going to rename the airport BLM airport.

Obviously Q is not a parent. Many if not all parents with multiple children know that eventually the children will fight or disagree. In virtually every instance it is the out of line children that gang up against the good child. With that thinking what Q has done is he has punished the good child and let the brats get away with being...brats.
But this is nothing new with "No Balls Lucas". Instead of being a true and respected leader, NBL, he is giving into the "I'll hold my breath until I get my way" children. That just never works but it is not surprising coming from NBL

I see that that idiots on this blog are still gathering to hope our beautiful city fails. I'm sorry that's not going to happen any time soon.

Mayor Lucas did an excellent job in handling this crisis and averted any other any delay in the construction of the new airport. He is showing us all that he's not afraid to get his hands dirty and take charge of the situation. By taking the role as interim chair he can manage all of these egos and move the new airport forward, which is what voters have demanded of us. Thank you mayor Lucas for rising above this situation and not letting this hamper something that KC needs.

The new airport is quickly becoming a new reality and now there's no stopping the progress. Go KC!

If LOWE'S and HOME DEPOT for some reason, closed up and pulled out tomorrow, the prices at Eustons and True Value would double within days.

Kansas City (Like so many Democrat dominated cities.) is a ONE STORE city where the customers have been "guilted" (You racist shit!), brainwashed (Your kids went to public school with teachers from the Teacher's Union 'teaching' them.) taught (Pavlovian repitition - "Good dog!!!" you voted for Mayor Lucas, so you're not a racist!!!) and intimidated (BLM/Antifa is just down the street and could be in YOUR neighborhood, VERY soon prole.) into voting again and again and again for politicians who can't fix the sewers, the roads, the infrastructure, keep the peace, educate the kids and the list goes on.

The ONLY people who win, are the insiders who game the system. I bet everyone at J.E. Dunn voted for Lucas, so did everyone at Polsinelli and White, so did everyone at Black and Veatch, so did..., you get the point.

The every day schmuck, driving down the street on busted roads, paying out the ass for water, dodging bullets and hiding behind "Black Lives Matter" signs in front yards (They should, at LEAST, make Black Lives Matter signs out of 1/4" steel.) is just another version of Keanu Reeves, sitting in a vat of goo, hooked up to tubes that run directly to Democrats and their cronies in City Hall.

Take the fuckin Red Pill, or just keep gettint T-Rexxed up the ass.

Just the latest example of childish naive Lucas not understanding the disaster of creating terrible precedents.
First, kneeling to the mob thinking that it would actually satisfy their "demands".
Now folding to the latest empty charges of "racism" thinking it will be the last.
Just a clueless puppet on a whole bunch of strings manipulated by others who have nothing but their own selfish interests in mind.
The clown show continues!

It looks as if Q-ball is hiding a little conspiracy regarding the KCI airport grift. Nah, that could not be it. Maybe somebody ought to direct the FBI to investigate anyway just so there is no appearance of impropriety.

Not usual birds of a feather. Chuck nailed it. Cleaver is more kool aid when the patient needs surgery. And the effort to blast Loar just raised her ten points on most ratings as someone who questions the insider fixes.

Think Q didn’t set a horrible precedent where the race card doesn’t come out early and often. Lots of articulate bs, good thing we have the Sly/Burke hotel and fried pork airport
