The Kansas City Call and response from Whitlock.
When Pellom McDaniels and Greg Baker met privately with a Kansas City Star reporter Friday, they explained their bizarre, irresponsible and borderline unethical decision by playing up Baker’s “strategic” expertise.
I can’t wait to watch Baker strategically fix the mess created by his appointment as Negro Leagues Baseball Museum executive director.
And when Baker executes the marching order (halt the campaign to build the Buck O’Neil education and research facility) given to him by museum board member Kevin Gray, I can’t wait to watch Baker strategically refund the money (including mine) already raised in support of the campaign.
...Rather than choosing marketing director Bob Kendrick, Buck O’Neil’s right-hand man and the brains and passion behind the museum for more than a decade, an 8-7 vote delivered the position to Baker, someone with virtually no clout in KC’s black community.
for his generous support.
