Kansas City Mayor Q & Manager Already FAIL Blizzard 2022?!?

Ahead of election season we're confronted with a tragic reality regarding civic life . . . 


We started the day with evidence of this fact . . .

So-called "planning" from Mayor & City Manager will allow garbage to pile up on Kansas City streets over Christmas.

The upcoming storm might or might not be overstated but the reality is that everyone knows that our neighbors in JoCo will enjoy far more advanced street cleaning than KCMO.

Don't worry . . . It gets worse. 

What voters must consider is that despite so many failings, there hasn't been any significant challenge to Mayor Q from local biz or political leadership. It's likely that he will cruise to reelection without a major challenger. 

Put simply . . .

Democracy in Kansas City has FAILED residents. 

The agenda for Mayor Q's next term, once again, is focused on special interests, developers and activists. 

Meanwhile, residents and workers have been all but ignored . . . Very much like neighborhood streets that will remain un-plowed, untreated and neglected amid a blizzard and far beyond. 

Accordingly, we share a bevy of winter storm links and hope our readers stay safe.
