I love you.

Politics aside this is a great board. Wish it was a little more active but the knowledge and stuff you learn on here is fantastic!

Huh. The KCEB still has the total around 40K votes in all. 54K would be 25% of registered KCMO voters - which (sadly) seems pretty good for a municipal primary.
KCUR probably misspoke then.

KCEB is for KCMO in Jackson County, only. It says it right on the top of the webpage: "Kansas City Board of Election Commissioners / Serving the Voters of Kansas City within Jackson County" That 40k number looks correct, in that case.

Can I ask, in all the sincerity that can be offered by an anonymous internet message board, would you give some examples of her voting against what you’re calling pigouts?

I know a few people who have been friendly with her for decades and are having a hard time with her performance this council term. The changes in the city in the last 5-10 years seem to have opened quite a generational divide.
This is no joke.

The city appears to be recognizing that it’s not going to be successful if it doesn’t start planning for the next generation. It’s been stuck in a baby boomer mentality for too long.

By the time the airport is complete in 2023 it will have been 30 years since the first study was underway. That’s so long that the youngest Millennials weren’t born yet when the process begun while the oldest millennials born in 1981 will have grandchildren flying out of the new terminal when it opens.

This crazy long process is what we’re starting to see change for the better.

Really my only disappointment of the night is Strassle.
Biggest missed opportunities: Bunch as 4th-at-large (his goal when Jolie was in re-election mode) or Glynn as 4th-at-large (could not be persuaded). Shields would have had a much harder time with either.

What i thought was most interesting about the numbers is that the Northland just simply did not show up for this election. Why is that?

Because they're realists who don't care to pretend that one career politician is going to have the city's best interests at heart well beyond the other career politicians. All shit options, and the turnout reflects that. It's not rocket science.

Correction: They knew the viable candidates had the city/region's best interests in mind (not necessarily what is in the best interest of the Northland).

Confirmed for the Air BNB vote. On that one she was traveling to DC to cover pro bono legal services.
