In his rise to power there were quite a few East side African-American matriarchs with a great deal of credibility who constantly sang the praises of then councilman Quinton Lucas. They admired his dedication to his own mother, his educational achievement and his soft spoken confidence. Inner city voters believed he would serve as an inspiration for the community and provide a transition in leadership from the civil rights era and into the future.
After a year in office rife with plague, protest, economic devastation and a continually rising homicide count . . . Urban core voters don't seem as hopeful about the tenure of Mayor Q.
Accordingly, Mayor Q's relationship with his base of support on the East side might soon become even more "complex" given his living arrangements that seem to be taking him outside of the district where he successfully launched his political career.
To wit and by way of KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS . . .
MAYOR Q & HIS NEW WIFE WERE RECENTLY SPOTTED LOOKING FOR NEW DIGGS IN COLEMAN HIGHLANDS!!!
Brief aside, this is the part of town where TKC grew up and there are still enough old Irish & Latina ladies keeping constant busybody watch over the streets to make the neighborhood a decent investment.
More importantly . . .
KANSAS CITY'S FIRST COUPLE IS ACTIVELY HOUSE HUNTING AMID THE SPRING BUYING SEASON & THEY DON'T SEEM TO BE SHOPPING IN THE 3RD DISTRICT!!!
Accordingly . . .
MIDTOWN WELCOMES MAYOR Q BUT HIS URBAN CORE CONSTITUENCY MIGHT VIEW THE CITY HALL HONCHO'S IMPENDING MOVE AS A BETRAYAL!!!
They'll have to wait in line to express their feelings . . . Again, in only a year's time, Mayor Q has inspired outcry from the police union, activists and even homeless volunteers for his often contradictory tactics.
Meanwhile, the city hall first couple has yet to sign on the dotted line BUT their next move is imminent.
