Wonder what they will turn their eyes toward next. They seem to have limitless energy towards ridiculous causes
When you realize there's probably over 90,000 people inside the district right now (pre-redistricting increases) it's especially sad.

They couldn't get less than 3% of the district to sign a petition. There's absolutely nothing that 97% of people agree on so this shows they just didn't know what they were doing.

That photo is wonderful. That’s at the empty restaurant outside the district mentioned earlier.

Not seeing a sign saying they were there for recall signatures says a lot about their organization.

Arguments heard in court today on PD’s suit against the city. Not much new based on some reporters tweet coverage.

Judge expected to rule in 7 days time.
So it has obviously been more than 7 days. Did anything happen on this yet? Did i miss something?

Saying that the failed Bunch recall was really about testing the waters and seeing what people think is at least the fifth, increasingly benign, rationale I've heard out of this group. Pretty soon they'll just be saying it was done to give people a chance to practice signing their names, and an opportunity for canvassers to get their steps in.

Nice that the group's connection to Heather Hall is out in the open now.

The recall effort is a fear reaction. At least wait until there is a public plan for how funds would be reallocated, and what they are trying to accomplish by doing so.

I must say though, that when you can't get police to show up at 14th and Grand (five blocks from Police headquarters) to stop cars from spinning in circles smoking their tires, you have a problem with the entire police department.

The problem with State control is that governor and rural legislators really have no understanding of urban problems and urban policing. They also have a history of not caring about what happens in Kansas City anyway. Gov. Parson might have been a sheriff in a county of 32,000, but that is nothing like urban policing administration.

Mayor and staff is putting positive spin on it:
Morgan
@morgan_said
On BOPC lawsuit:

1) The City didn’t file suit, the Board did;

2) Judge ruled—on said lawsuit filed by BOPC—that during regular budget cycle, Council CAN compel Board to negotiate with the City, should KCPD want more than minimum statutory requirement.

A win for Kansas Citians.
So as we discussed earlier in this thread and I want to say we came to same conclusion, KCMO can't change the budget mid-fiscal year, but no issues doing it in future years.

So basically, be careful what you ask for. You just may get it.

Meh. Has he made any statements on the Bravo project yet or is he waiting to see the polling on it?

I think he's done fairly well with covid, and fairly poorly with affordable housing.

Like most mayors I suspect he'll want a legacy. Right now he doesn't have one, so hopefully he starts doing something.

I sympathize a bit with his timing though, even as someone that voted against him

He is both for and against it depending who asks.

Meh, I blocked him long ago. I was responding to you who I respect far more.

Yes, having a mayor make national news in shorts, flip flops, and maskless at Lake of the Ozarks while mandating masks in his city is definitely doing fairly well with Covid...

Not sure it’s the best source ever
http://www.citymayors.com/coronavirus/u ... ses-2.html
The top five cities include New York City, Boston, New Orleans, Miami-Dade and Nashville. The five least affected cities include Kansas City, San Jose, Sacramento, Portland, and Oakland.
We’re the only city not on the west coast for least affected.
