Once again Mayor Q proves too smart for his own good and an easy hire at a time when the public is distracted has run afoul of the city council.
To wit . . .
TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! CITY MANAGER JOB SEARCH NOW LOOKS RIGGED AFTER JOB OFFER LEAKS BEFORE COUNCIL VOTE!!!
Given the KC is now attempting to lure an NBA temp team . . . Let's put this in B-ball terms:
They mayor missed an unguarded layup.
Everybody is worried about the Presidential election. Small biz struggles to stay alive and don't have as much time to play politics. Activists & protesters are targeting police not worried about NTDF funding.
And so . . .
Whilst the City Hall budget is busted and KCMO is moving closer toward bankruptcy every day . . . These insider deets on the city manager job don't excite the crowd and FAIL to generate a lot of likes & shares via social media. Whilst this decision determines HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS worth of KC funding, the job isn't glamorous and it's easy & beneficial for the city manager to disappear into the background.
And so . . . A few hundred words expose Mayor Q as a bit of a sleaze and reveal the Mayor's office wheeling & dealing behind the council's back. We can tell this angers his paid staffers given a few nasty comments but that's to be expected.
What's more important here is that what might have been an easy win for Mayor Q was sloppily blown by his arrogance . . . And that doesn't bode well for greater challenges for Kansas City in the very near future.
