Kansas City councilwoman Cindy Circo has done an outstanding job as chair of the Housing Committee. She has worked countless hours and is trying to make Kansas City a better place to live for all of our citizenry.
Mayor Funkhouser obviously doesn’t agree, as he took the chair post from her (11/8, A-1, “Mayor takes council to court”). This is the second time he has taken a chair away from an excellent councilperson (Ed Ford).
Recently, two respected members of the mayor’s office have resigned (Ed Wolf and Joe Miller). I hope sooner rather than later we will receive effective leadership from the mayor’s office. It certainly hasn’t happened for the past 18 months.
