South Kansas City MO Voters Need To Retire John Sharp

If you need to know my reasoning on this- just drive down Chuck Eddy (Hillcrest) Road between 87th Street and Bannister (95th Street) where the former retail area around the hole-in-the-ground formerly known as Bannister Mall used to be.

Try to avoid the mess at 87th Street where it meets I-435- a fustercluck maze of narrow- potholed traffic lanes that seems to take forever to get finished on a street project that SHOULD have been completed 30 years ago.

Then take a drive down Blue Ridge south from 87th Street or Bannister toward the Grandview city limits- taking in the deteriorating neighborhoods on either side.

Check out the huge amount of money that goes to corporate interests in this city that were approved in the form of TIFs and other taxpayer-provided subsidies- most if not all approved on John Sharp's (or Chuck Eddy's) watch.

Then and ONLY then- if you STILL want to vote for John Sharp (or for that matter ANY City Clowncil incumbent)- hold your nose and grab your ankles as you bend over for another few years of Dying Kansas City.

Kansas City voters need to run a national ad seeking a Mayor and city council that will come to Kansas City and fix this mess.
Or they could just write in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Tweety and Sylvester, Porky, Daffy and Roadrunner. I mean let’s be honest could it be any worse?

There is a new wordpress blog all about John Sharp and his personal history. Voters should have a look before next Tuesday's election. I didn't know about any of this!
