TKC QUESTION: IS KANSAS CITY PUBLIC OPINION TURNING AGAINST MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS AS COVID-19 WORSENS?!?

In the early days of the pandemic Mayor Q earned praise from local pundits and politicos for leading the effort to lockdown and protect lives against COVID-19. 

Now, let's take a look at just a quick list of wrongs confronting the mayor in the aftermath of a contentious election season and at the outset of Winter "dark days" predicted by Joe Biden and public health officials . . .

Mayor Q Confronts Criticism From Both Police & Activists Over His Cautious Approach To The Top Cop Debate

Again and again . . . EVERYONE BELIEVES MAYOR Q SHOULD PICK A SIDE and stop waffling betwixt police support and activist demands. The Mayor's lack of clarity on the resignation and/or removal of Chief Smith has hurt his administration and worsened community relations with law enforcement by way of indecision.

Flip Flopping On The City Manager Hire Cost The Mayor Urban Core Credibility

The Mayor promised a "transformative" hire but then was caught making behind the scenes deals that irked the council and undermined the hiring process . . . Translation: Mayor Q's machinations made the City Manager hire look rigged. Now, before Brian Platt's first day on the job, he has been tagged as a racist and confronts unfortunate urban core opposition.

Allegedly "Arbitrary" COVID-19 Curfew Has Sparked A Political Vendetta Against The Mayor From Local Small Biz Leaders

A lawsuit takes on Mayor Q and he still hasn't explained to us how "science" proves that COVID-19 is more dangerous after 10PM. Moreover, a crackdown targeting small biz has cost hundreds of jobs and sparked THE KANSAS CITY 2020 RESTAURANT APOCALYPSE. Accordingly, these locals aren't likely to forget the hardship they're confronting anytime soon and Mayor Q will have a tough time convincing this influential constituency that he was acting in their best interests. 

Still . . . All of this is just context so that we can ask our blog community . . .

HOW IS MAYOR Q DOING AS KANSAS CITY CONFRONTS THE "DARK DAYS" OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC?!?!

You decide . . .

Definitely overestimating the early support for the mayor. He has been opposed on the lockdowns since day one. Did you forget about the recall?

Two of them actually.

I don't know if the mayor plans to run for reelection, but he'll have a tough time convincing anyone who works in KC to vote for him again.

Anonymous said...

And yet the virus is not his fault, and both recall efforts have been dismal failures. Weird.

The virus wasn't trumps fault either, yet he took it at the polls for it. So Q should get a pass? Please, spare me.

The general public gave up on KCMO government a long time ago.
The folks who run for office and get elected have regularly demonstrated that they have no understanding or appreciation for what a city government is actually responsible for and they turn out to be way more interested in which special groups, especially their campaign contributors and other insiders, they can do favors for.
And most of all, "what are you going to run for next"?
The real needs of residents and small businesses aren't even on the radar screen.
And the city's condition is made very clear by the shape the streets and other infrastructure is in, the horrendous homicide rate, and KCMO's desperate financial position.
Lucas is just the latest and most visible in a very long list of D-list celebrity political hacks to inhabit 12th and Oak.
You get what you pay for, or in this case, elect.

Let's be honest: Mayor Lucas, his new city manager, are a different breed than the old days. These KC jobs are stepping stones to their ultimate fate in DC. $275,000 + car to a 30 year old kid to run a city of 450,000 people? It's a new era of the clerisy and political/consultant class.

They'll be gone in a few years, no matter their outcomes (ruin the city, bankrupt it, crime skyrockets) and they'll always find high-paying jobs, hop around, become consultants, media people. That's the game. NOT helping people and really being a leader.

Anonymous said...

Yes. I'm sure developers and other grifters long for the days of Give-it-Away Kay and Slimy Sly and would dearly love to replace Q with someone more to their liking. And yet voters seem to disagree. Weird.

Leadership is when you get further in Mideast peace deals than any other president before you, lower taxes on the majority of Americans no matter the income class, make trade deals with China so tough that China wants a senile fool to replace the tough negotiator, and go after terrorist groups so vigorously that they have a hard time launching attacks on our home soil.

Progressives could care less if the mayor is a geed steward of the taxpayer money he is burning through, or, if he kills off what is left of the tax base and small business.

They will vote for him again and again because his skin is black and he is gay.

AGAINST THE WALL

Quinton Wilson is a narcissistic actor suffering from schizophrenia.

Yes, his real last name is Wilson, as his biological father as determined by the Missouri Court of Appeals is Thomas O. Wilson.

The White race that he loves to accuse of institutional racism is directly responsible for him receiving scholarships to an exclusive private KC high school, Washington University-St. Louis, and Cornell Law School. Current-day Quinton Wilson exists because he was plucked from obscurity and given the path to success.

As Councilman and now Mayor, Quinton Wilson pays no real estate taxes because he's so committed to KCMO that he owns no home in the city. He lives in an apartment building owned by KCMO which pays no property taxes.

After graduating from law school in 2009, Quinton Wilson clerked for a MO judge, failed at a local law firm, and then landed a diversity/inclusion appointment at KU Law School in 2012. His title at KU was "law lecturer" an entry level position. He was never a professor, despite his years and hundreds of instances of falsely claiming the title.

The business group that backs Quinton Wilson and funds his political campaigns are a majority Kansas-resident group. Mayor Wilson is beholden to them like an indentured servant to his Master.

KCMO has a City Manager form of municipal government. Essentially, the Mayor is a Councilmember with extra duties/appointment powers and the bully pulpit.

Quinton is a narcissist because nearly his entire life he's grown accustomed to receiving praise and winning an award for walking into a room as a black man who can enunciate his words clearly. White liberals and those in need of a front-man for their interests, love to promote people of color like Quinton, because it provides the illusion of equal opportunity. Quinton truly believes that he's "special", loves to hear himself talk, is happy to take money from wealthy whites, and opportunistically looks for the next ladder rung to climb before people discover the truth.

No wonder Democrats want to steal elections so badly, it is BIG money!

"The daughter of California Rep. Maxine Waters netted around $240,000 this past election cycle — from her mother’s own campaign, new records show.

The congresswoman’s campaigns shelled out payments to Karen Waters for work she did on her 82-year-old mother’s re-election campaign, including “slate mailer management” and “GOTV” — or likely “Get Out the Vote” services.

The payments appear in new Federal Election Commission filings reported by Fox News on Friday.

More than $212,600 in disbursements to Karen Waters are broken down into 26 entries such as “slate mailer management” fees, “office expenses” and “canvassing” between March 2019 and September 2020."
