Just out of curiosity, what are the requirements for running for a council seat?

Candidates for mayor and City Council positions must be at least 25 years old, qualified City voters, residents of the City for five years and of their district for six months, and have paid City and county taxes for two years before election.

lol I could, hypothetically, run for a council position.

Also Dave I saw you on the Troost MAX today. I was going to say hi but I was in the middle of listening to an interesting podcast. Congrats on the board of directors election.

I'm guessing this is supposed to be Stacey Johnson-Cosby?

I know her personally, but wasn't aware she was running for council. I'm not surprised, as she has always been very involved in the community.

I really like her as a person, but I'm not sure about her politics. When it comes to civic issues that I have discussed with her, we seem to be on the same page. I know she is a supporter of streetcar extension (and wanted it all the way to South KC). However, she is a Republican. With her being an African-American woman, it is hard to wrap my brain around that.

Yeah I feel bad, because I haven't looked into the other candidates to much. But I really just want Jolie to win it, I feel like she will be super helpful and already has a ton of experience

Word is that Shields is out because of terrible polling. Silvey tweeted this awhile back:

I've heard that Shields is interested in the City Manager's job anyway.
