There's a power shift underway at the courthouse that deserves attention because it's the beginning of an ambitious effort which threatens the political machine of Jackson County Executive Frank White.
To wit . . .
INSIDERS NOTICE JACKSON COUNTY LEGISLATIVE CHAIR THERESA GALVIN POSITIONING HERSELF AS A VIABLE OPTION AGAINST THE EXEC!!!
The early branding hasn't been unnoticed and has recently become more obvious.
Thankfully, there's a bit more explanation and perspective . . .
"She (Legislator Galvin) has been very critical of the Executive recently, and in a very public manner. It was strange to see her constant opposition, but now it's clear that her 'long plan' is to go after his job. Some might think a Republican can't get elected in Jackson County but these are unprecedented times and there's a real risk that, with the right funding, she could pose a serious challenge and galvanize Eastern Jack & Lee's Summit opposition."
Moreover, the suspected political ambitions of Legislator Galvin seemed to come to light when she pushed back against taking down the statue of Andrew Jackson on the courthouse steps and instead allowed voters to make the call . . . Surprisingly, the electorate decided to keep the controversial icon.
And so, election season is always closer than it seems and after disappointment for Missouri Democrats in 2020 . . . They now risk losing one of their greatest strongholds.
