At least one reason to love Deb Hermann
Councilwoman Deb Hermann says what she’s thinking. Loved this quote from Hermann in The Kansas City Star about an audit revealing the failures of Kansas City’s — but isn’t doing a good job of — encouraging minority and women owned businesses.
“What we’re seeing here is a real failure,” said Finance Committee Chairman Deb Hermann. “There are a lot of troubling issues.”
Sounds like the program is less than encouraging, including the city taking its sweet time — an average of 100 days — to approve businesses as minority and women owned, which, you know, costs them opportunities. Bang up job, guys.
