IFAIK there are 3 Raggers officially or unofficially running for Council. I wouldn't be surprised if there are more.

If those are the three choices, I’d vote the latter any day of the week.

Would be nice if they “came out” on here so that we can actually support them IRL

https://www.kansascity.com/news/politic ... 17979.html

The only two candidates for Kansas City mayor in 2019 who are not on the City Council were the busiest fundraisers during the last quarter of 2017, according to new state filings.

Crossroads Arts District businessman Phil Glynn collected $81,428, which includes $29,500 in personal loans, during the three-month period that ended Dec. 31. Attorney Stephen Miller raised $50,765.

Miller and Glynn, both making their first run for office, are part of what is so far a six-candidate field for the April 2019 primary. The others are Mayor Pro Tem Scott Wagner, and Council members Scott Taylor, Jolie Justus and Jermaine Reed. All but Justus are in their second terms and ineligible to run for re-election.

So who on the council won't be able to run again due to term limits? Can't find this info anywhere.

If you're looking to punish the no votes, better start talking to some Northlanders (or fielding solid challengers).

Because people under 40 in the 4th district are overwhelmingly absent from the polls.

Low (and old) turnout, name recognition, tepid opponent. She won by 173 votes.
