The outcry from locals over the mayor's new pandemic crackdown has been overwhelming and impacted not only his popularity but also his ability to govern.
Real talk: The Mayor kneecapping local small biz has been one of the most devastating economic moves in modern Kansas City history and part of an effort that has inspired a political vendetta among local restaurant owners.
To wit . . .

The reality is that most people aren't expecting much from this move but it does signal how deeply frustrated residents have become with the lack of leadership from city hall.
Fun fact . . . Somewhere, your council member is hiding under a desk.

Anything short of pushing back the curfew won't really help.
