2019 KCMO Mayoral candidate Phil Glynn – one of two candidates from outside of City Council – joins Northeast News managing editor Paul Thompson for the latest episode of Kansas City’s Northeast Newscast.

Glynn discusses his experiences as a business owner in Kansas City, talks about his motivations for running for Mayor, and speaks passionately and eloquently about a plethora of issues: including the expenditure of $800 million in General Obligation bond dollars, the ongoing saga of the American Jazz Museum board, and the proper way to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Glynn also discusses his ties to the Historic Northeast through his time serving as the Board President of Northeast Community Center, displaying a surprising understanding of the makeup of the area.

“I know it has issues, but this is a great neighborhood. It has families, it has beautiful old homes, it has wide sidewalks, it has small businesses, it has diversity,” Glynn said of the Northeast. “To me, it has the building blocks of a successful neighborhood, and not because someone at City Hall or at the EDC (Economic Development Corporation) or someone outside Kansas City figured it out and made it that way; it’s become that way on its own.”
