Raytown launches new anti-crime program with focus on youth

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A new crime prevention program in Raytown will focus on helping young people who may become exposed to violent crime.

Glad to see this.

Kuehl, with his diversity of experience, may be the first step in in unraveling a longtime tiresome clique of current and former elected officials, staff, and retired city employees that need to be broken up and dispersed.

Raytown needs all the help it can get.

We need more QUALIFIED leaders.
