Kansas City Public Testimony To Council Now Limited To Only One Minute

Stricter limits imposed on the discourse via social media, in public spaces and now before local government are now seemingly part of the American progressive cultural shift.

Accordingly, here's part of the trend reported by one of the very best readers of this blog . . .

"I noticed that people are now limited to only 1 minute of testimony. That's a drastic cutback from 3 minutes at the start of the pandemic.  I guess due the upcoming budget issues they don't want any dissent or objections."

Check the current docket and notice the new rules now in effect.

typical of KC. They're not even pretending like the voters matter anymore.

Well, to be fair it only takes a few seconds to tell them they're corrupt, incompetent, parasitic swine.

The insiders who REALLY influence and even control the KCMO budget don't concern themselves with silly rules like this.
They know they can get as much time as they want behind closed doors to be sure their priorities and "needs" are taken care of.
And, if somehow they don't later get what they've been promised, there's always the "recognizing an emergency" shortened spending decision that fills in the gaps.
The city "budget" is just a bunch of pieces of paper.
Nothing has changed for decades.

That's enough time to say "screw you" with a few left over.

Yeah. One can really have deep, meaningful discussions when speaking in one minute increments. Once again the Democrat shitty council demonstrates its contempt for Democracy. And facts. Sad.

Unless you have fried chicken around your neck you cannot keep most of clowncils attention for over a minute. It is a waist attention span ratio issue.

Hey, that's one minute more than we get from Mayor Michelle "E-forgery/Perjury/now on Diversion until she flunks here required drug and alcohol tests during the Super Bowl" Distler in Shawnee! Who does not even attend council meetings. She Zooms from home, while our low experience City Manager with the 25% salary boost, Nolan Sunderman hides down the hall in his office on HIS Zoom screen and refuses to walk into council chambers where the four conservatives actually are in attendance.

Distler used to allow 3 minutes. But had a school marm scolding rule, "No IMPERTINENCE!" The only thing missing was a blackboard, and a fine of writing on her blackboard,100 times, "I will not be impertinent".

Welcome to the Oligarchy. Coca Cola just enacted a rule that for all new lawyers, 50% must be black. I kid you not.
