From the Desk of John Sharp...

This came in an envelope and everything, from the Sharp campaign late last week. Complete with fake Post-It note. Amazing, I believe I have never received literature like this from a candidate. It appears that Mr. Nash is making Mr. Sharp nervous with his sharp criticism of Mr. Sharp's work as a council member on behalf of the sixth district...

Oh, and I got this comment on the blog...it rocks! (Do I miss robocalls because I only have a cell phone? No, not really. However, I do lose the opportunity to make fun of them!)

I got a robocall from John Sharp yesterday. I transcribed it, and then edited it for truth:


Hi, this is Councilman John Sharp. Thanks for letting me serve as your councilman the last 4 years. The recession's been tough, and we are caught helpless in its grip. The feds are keeping 2,000 jobs in our area by keeping the new Honeywell plant in South Kansas City and starting the job of poisoning a new generation of workers. The new headquarters for the police south patrol is being built just south of Bannister, though no one knows why. Red Bridge Road's being supersized, while destroying a historic park. Sidewalks are being built on Blue Ridge, though they won't take you anywhere. Trader Joe's is coming to Ward Parkway, which I found out about the same time you did. All of this would have happened even if a used refrigerator like you might have seen on Blue River Road (which is closed due to my negligence) were sitting in the 6th district seat. Hope you'll send me back for another 4 years so I can start proving my worth to the predatory political interests that will give me a nice job lobbying for them when I get off the council. And to fatten up my pension, too. Thank you. Suckers.

John did this 4 years ago. So lame.

I actually have a link to the letter from four years ago.

The authors are different, but in both cases you have a close ally of Sharp pretending to be a more distant acquaintance of Sharp.

Not only lame, but deceptive. Typical John Sharp.

The new blog about John Sharp has documented Sharp's serial deceptions.

The Observer has to admit that that letter probably passed by unopened four years ago(blush, hang head in shame).

You all should look at the link--many of the phrases are close if not identical.

Terrence Nash isn't perfect, but it is time to eject this phoney John Sharp out of the city government.

And any former MAST employees in the sixth district should certainly know better then to vote for him.
