KANSAS CITY, Missouri – The latest edition of the Northeast Newscast is now live.
This week, Northeast News managing editor Paul Thompson meets with Indian Mound Neighborhood Association Vice President Manny Abarca, a strong advocate for the Historic Northeast community.
Abarca discusses a variety of topics, including his work as a historic preservationist and how the Northeast area can best protect history while supporting economic development; his disappointment at losing his 2016 race for the Missouri House of Representatives by a mere 19 votes; his thoughts on how the current incarnation of the KCMO City Council is doing at the mid-point of its term; and the rising tide of violence that’s permeated throughout Kansas City.
